Ingredients

Marinade:

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons ancho chile powder

1 tablespoon pasilla pepper

2 tablespoons paprika

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup olive oil

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut in half lengthwise

32 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 2 hours

Finely chopped fresh chives

16 flour tortillas

Glaze:

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 shallots, finely diced

Pinch cascabel powder

1 cup red wine vinegar

1 cup sugar

2 cups tangerine juice

Lemon juice, to taste

Honey, to taste

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Tangerine-Pomegranate Relish:

6 tangerines, segmented

Seeds from 1 pomegranate

1/2 small red onion, finely diced

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 teaspoon honey

Directions

  1. For the Marinade: Mix together the juices, chile powders, paprika, cayenne, cilantro and oil. Add the chicken thighs and let marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator. Preheat grill pan. Remove chicken from marinade and thread each chicken half onto 2 skewers so that the meat stays flat on the grill. Season with salt and pepper and grill for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove chicken from the grill pan and brush liberally with the tangerine glaze, serve on a platter, serve with the relish and garnish with chives. Serve with flour tortillas.
  2. For the Glaze: Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-heat. Add the shallots and cascabel powder and cook until soft. Raise the heat to high, add the vinegar, sugar and tangerine juice and reduce to a syrup. Season with lemon juice and honey to taste. Add the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
  3. For the Tangerine-Pomegranate Relish: Combine all relish ingredients well.
