Are you looking for interesting marinades to make for the grill this Summer? Try this orange balsamic chicken glaze. It has orange marmalade, balsamic vinegar, and honey in it. After you try it on chicken, you might want to give it a try on seafood as well. Shrimp or salmon would be really good.
I was browsing my pinterest boards and saw this recipe for orange basalmic glazed chicken, and then I thought it would be really fun to make chicken kabobs with that glaze. Food is always better on a stick and it’s also fun to eat.
How to Cook Chicken Kabobs
To cook the chicken on the grill, all it takes is 4 flips, with 2 – 3 two minutes per side if you have it on really high heat. The chicken comes out really moist. Kabobs is a fun word to say too. KAH BOBS. KAH BOBS on the BARBIE B Q. Ok, I sound like an idiot so I’ll stop now. 🙂
