Florida Orange Marinated Kabobs

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for the Florida Department of Citrus. I received promotional item to thank me for participating.

College football season is finally here and for many of us that also means the ushering in of tailgating and football party season. 
I mean, I will be honest.  I love our Mountaineers here in the great state of West Virginia, and I love watching them play.  But what I love even more is inviting friends & family to come on over and hosting a football party. ;)  
But you can’t have a football party without delicious food! We love simple grilling recipes, like a citrus marinade that adds bright flavor to grilled chicken. Plus, we always have the main ingredient in our fridge – 100% Florida Orange Juice!

Florida Orange Juice is an easy addition to just about any game day grilling marinade.  And when we are not marinating and grilling with it, this family is drinking it.  As a mama, making nutritious choices for my family is important. 100% Florida Orange Juice is not only delicious, but it is also packed with all the good stuff like vitamin C plus other essential nutrients like potassium, folate and thiamin!  
And the fact that it makes a fantastic base for a tailgating chicken marinade? Bonus! :)

This simple chicken marinade takes just 4 ingredients to make, but it is packed with flavor. It is sure to quickly become a new game day favorite...

Prep Time: 4 hours to overnight
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
Ingredients (8 skewers)
  • 4 chicken breasts, trimmed of fat & cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup 100% Florida Orange Juice
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp jerk seasoning
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, jerk seasoning, and minced ginger in a medium bowl. Add the chicken chunks to the Florida Orange marinade and mix. Cover & refrigerate for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight.

Alternatively, you can skewer the chicken chunks, place in a baking dish, and then pour the marinade over the skewers, and cover & refrigerate.

Place the marinated skewers on the hot grill. Turn the skewers & cook until chicken is cooked all the way through, about 15-20 minutes.
Serve immediately.

These Florida Orange Marinated Kabobs were a huge hit it on game day this past weekend in our home! :)  And anything served on sticks is always a winner at a tailgate or football party in my book...
