Save Recipe


1 cup orange marmalade

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast or thigh meat, cut lengthwise into 1-inch wide strips

36 to 40 (6-inch) wooden skewers


Combine everything except chicken and skewers in a large nonreactive bowl and whisk to combine. Add chicken strips and toss to coat. Cover and marinate at least 4 hours.

When ready to cook, heat oven to 425 degrees F and arrange a rack in the middle. Remove chicken from marinade (reserving marinade) and thread 1 piece of chicken on each skewer.

Heat the reserved marinade in a small saucepan until boiling and boil for 3 minutes. Cool a bit before using.

Arrange skewers on a foil-lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes, flip skewers and baste with remaining marinade (you don't need to use it all). Bake about 5 more minutes, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
