Marmalade and Wine Chicken Kebabs

Pete and I had an impromptu braai the other evening and all I had out defrosted were chicken breasts – not the most ideal thing for the braai but nonetheless, it was decided that we were to braai so onward with the plan.  We opted to have pap and sous (always a hit) while I very quickly turned the chicken breasts into kebabs with some veg and a little marinade which was absolutely delicious!  The chicken was lovely and juicy while the onions and broccoli were perfectly al dente and the mushrooms were beautifully soft and full of the flavours of the marinade.

Marmalade and Wine Chicken Kebabs



75ml orange marmalade
60ml red wine
15ml whole grain mustard
15ml olive oil
8 skewers – remember to soak the wooden variety for 30 minutes to an hour before using
3 chicken breasts cut into chunks
1 onion cut into chunks
Broccoli florets
Mushrooms quartered


  1. Mix all of the ingredients for the marinade and set aside.
  2. Skewer the chicken and veggies in any combination you like.
  3. Pour over the marinade.
  4. Braai the kebabs (not for very long – you don’t want them drying out) basting with the marinade.
