Grilled Chicken and Mango Skewers

The inspiration for this recipe came from the charbroiled chicken skewers I used to enjoy while strolling along Calle Ocho in Miami on Sunday afternoons. Feel free to garnish with sesame seeds or spritz with fresh lime juice. —Wolfgang Hanau, West Palm Beach, Florida

    I followed the recipe BUT added a bit of garlic powder to corn. Kept a close eye on the kabobs on the grill so as not to overcook chicken or lose any mango bits between the grates (my sous chef cut them a bit small - HA). Delicious!

    We made this recipe for 2 people. I used .5 lb of boneless chicken thigh and one mango. i also used 1.5 cups cups of frozen corn and 3 green onions. The kabobs of chicken and mango was delicious. It was especially good set atop the sauteed corn. We truly did enjoy this combination of foods. Easy and delicious for a summer evening meal.
