Tangerine Chicken Skewers
Serves: 8
  • 8 wooden skewers
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 T. paprika
  • 1 t. light brown sugar
  • ½ t. salt
  • ½ t. black pepper
  • 8 chicken breast, tenders (8 ounces)
  • 4 small tangerines
  • 1 large onion
  1. Turn on broiler to start heating and soak wooden skewers in hot water.
  2. Rinse chicken and cut it into 1 inch cubes
  3. Peel tangerines and separate tangerine slices.
  4. Chop onion into ½-inch chunks.
  5. Take the wooden skewers out of the water and place them on a paper towel.
  6. Alternate placing a chicken chunk, orange slice, and onion chunk on to the wooden skewer. Leave about an inch of space on each end of the skewer.
  7. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together oil, paprika, sugar, salt and pepper. Pour mixture into spray bottle. (As an alternative you can use a pastry brush to brush this over the skewers but then you may want to add an extra teaspoon or two of oil—remember this will change the nutrition information.)
  8. Place skewers on a broiling pan.
  9. Spritz all sides of each skewer with the oil and spice mixture. (Alternative☺ Using a pastry brush, brush the oil mixture on to the skewers so that it coats all side of the skewer.)
  10. Place the pan in the oven and allow the skewers to broil for 3-4 minutes. Take the pan out and flip the skewers and then place them back in the oven for 3-4 more minutes until the chicken is fully cooked through on the inside. The skewers should be slightly charred.
  11. Take pan out of the oven and enjoy.
