Chicken and Sweet Potato Kebabs Kimberton Whole Foods


1 large (3/4 lb.) sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1½ lbs. Smart Chicken organic boneless chicken thighs or breast cut into 2-inch pieces *Coupons available in-store for $1 off any package of Smart Chicken, for a limited time!
1 medium sweet onion, cut into 1½-inch chunks and layers separated
olive oil
7 (12-inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


2 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp chili powder
½ tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
¼ tsp crushed red pepper
6 tbsp honey
2 tsp cider vinegar


Place potato pieces into a small saucepan and add just enough water to cover the tops. Bring the water with potatoes to a boil over medium heat; cook for 5 minutes, partially covered, until potatoes are nearly cooked but still a bit firm. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.

While the potatoes are cooling, prepare the spice mix and glaze by mixing together the garlic salt, chili powder, salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, and crushed red pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the honey and cider vinegar. Set aside.

Add chicken to a medium bowl; drizzle lightly with olive oil and toss with half of the spice rub. Do the same with cooled potato pieces and sweet onion chunks; drizzle with olive oil and toss with remaining spice rub.

Thread the chicken, sweet potato, and onion onto the soaked skewers.

Preheat the grill on medium/high; grill the chicken skewers for 8 minutes, turning frequently, or until chicken juices run clear while brushing the skewers with the prepared honey glaze. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
