Week 40: Chicken Orientale

The Recipe
~300g chicken breast cut into ~16 pieces
4 pineapple chunks
1/3 bell pepper cut into 4 chunks
4 cherry tomatoes
1 orange, cut into quarters
4 small onions
4 skewers

1tbsp soy sauce
1tbsp vinegar
a dash of ginger
1dl (~1/2cup) apple juice
1dl white wine
2tbsp olive oil

Sprinkle chicken breasts with pepper.

Divide the chicken and vegetables evenly onto 4 skewers. Make sure to separate the chicken pieces with the rest. Place the skewers in a shallow pan or a ziplock bag. Mix the ingredients for the marinade and pour over. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Drain, reserving the marinade. Broil for about 20 minutes or until chicken is done, brushing with marinade every 5 minutes. Discard leftover marinade.

The Verdict
I wasn't too impressed. First of all, the marinade didn't really seem to do much, which meant the entire thing was very bland. Also, I didn't much care for the warm pieces of orange and ended up just discarding those. Not worth a repeat unfortunately.
