Today’s recipe feature is Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Kebabs. A strong and spicy dressing serves as a delicious marinade for chicken thighs and then later as a dipping sauce with the final product. Chicken and orange pieces are placed on skewers, seasoned with salt and pepper and then grilled until completely wonderful. Serve this dish with couscous or brown rice with grilled vegetables.
