Caribbean Citrus Habanero Chicken Skewers Recipe


  • 8-9 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced into 1″ pieces
  • 2 yellow or sweet onions, diced into 1″ pieces
  • 2 red or green bell peppers, diced into 1″ pieces
  • Fresh pineapple, diced into 1″ pieces (I bought some already diced from my grocery store)


  • 3 tsp orange zest
  • 1 1/2 cup orange juice, fresh is best, but good quality bottled juice is okay
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp El Yucateco Caribbean Hot Sauce (more or less for your tastes)
  • 2 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh oregano, minced
  • 5 Tbsp honey (more or less to your tastes)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add marinade ingredients and whisk to combine well. Remove about 1/3 cup and place into an airtight container and refrigerate. Set aside the remaining marinade.
  2. Trim chicken breasts of fat and dice into 1″ pieces.
  3. Add to bowl with the marinade and toss to coat. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours.
  4. Dice onion, pepper and pineapple into 1″ pieces and set aside.
  5. Preheat grill over MED heat.
  6. Make skewers by alternating chicken, onion, bell pepper and pineapple.
  7. Grill, basting with reserved marinade, for several minutes per side, until chicken is cooked through.
