Loved the recipe. I cut it back to 12 oz of chicken - 2 skewers - made the full marinade and added an extra clove of garlic. Baked in the oven at 375F for 25 minutes - The result was lovely moist chicken loaded with flavor. I used 4 large Jalapenos and it was not too hot at all. This is a do again recipe for sure

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine orange and lemon juices, oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt and oregano in a resealable plastic food storage bag.
  2. Add chicken and peppers; seal bag and turn to coat.
  3. Place bag on a plate on the bottom shelf in refrigerator and marinate for 2 to 8 hours.
  4. Preheat grill or grill pan.
  5. Thread chicken and pepper halves onto 8 metal or wooden skewers, using 4 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces of pepper per skewer; coat with cooking spray. (Note: If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water 30 minutes before use to prevent charring.).
  6. Grill skewers, turning often, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 6 to 8 minutes; serve immediately.
  7. Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Yields 1 skewer per serving.
