Kabob it up!

Cilantro and spicy chili come together on these tangy chicken skewers mixed with peppers and onions. Full of flavor from the fresh cilantro, this dish can be made by using the broil setting in your oven or over medium-high heat on the grill.

1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup red chili paste

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 pound boneless chicken breasts

cut into 1-inch cubes

1 onion, roughly chopped

2 green bell peppers, roughly chopped

—In a large bowl, combine the cilantro, olive oil, red chili paste, soy sauce, garlic, onion powder, ginger, and black pepper.

—Add the chicken meat. Toss to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to marinate.

—Remove the chicken from the refrigerator. Skewer the chicken cubes, alternating with the onions and peppers between each piece.

—Place a foil-lined baking sheet on the lowest oven rack.

—Grill, turning as needed for a bit of char on all sides. Finish cooking in the oven on foil lined baking sheets.

—With a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature. When it reaches 165°F, remove from the oven to cool.
