Easy Grilled Chicken Skewers

 6 Chicken Breasts or if you prefer Chicken Thighs about 12
 ¼ cup Lemon Juice
 1 cup Marmalade - Orange or any flavor you prefer
 1 cup Chicken Broth
 1 tbsp Lemon Rind Grated
 ½ tsp Salt
 ¼ tsp Pepper
 ½ cup Honey
 ¼ cup Ground Mustard
 4 tbsp Mayonnaise
 2 tbsp Roasted Sesame
 8 Bamboo Skewers

Cut chicken breast lengthwise into 1-inch strips, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then set aside.


In a medium bowl whisk together lemon juice, chicken broth, lemon peel, and marmalade.


Pour marinade into a ziplock baggie and add chicken.  Seal ziplock baggie and massage the marinade into the chicken for a minute.  Refrigerate for 1-4 hours, turn the bag occasionally. Place the wooden skewers in water for about ½ hour.


Prepare dipping sauce – In a small bowl add honey, mustard, mayonnaise, and sesame seeds.  Stir until all ingredients are combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Drain the chicken and discard remaining marinade.  Thread chickens strips on prepared wooden skewers.


Preheat grill and spray with a non-stick spray.  Then place skewers on a grill.  Cover, and grill on medium heat for about 10 to 12 minutes or until no longer pink in the middle. Turn occasionally for even cooking.


Serve with prepared dipping sauce and enjoy!
