Smoky, seasoned grilled chicken makes a wonderful contrast with sweet, juicy grapes. Instead of 8-inch skewers, shorter wooden skewers could be used for smaller portions. Just remember to soak the skewers in water at least 30 minutes before grilling to avoid burning them.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
32 large red seedless grapes
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon Spanish sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon dry sherry
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed
Combine the marinade ingredients in a medium-size bowl. Add the chicken, stirring to coat well. Marinate at least 2 hours, or overnight.
On eight 8-inch skewers, alternately thread chicken pieces with the grapes (about 4 grapes per skewer). Over a medium-hot grill, grill skewers, turning once, until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve warm.
