These orange chicken skewers are packed with flavor and easy to throw together. They’re great on a salad or alongside grilled veggies!
I’m so excited to be sharing an easy and delicious recipe today from Cristina Curp’s brand new cookbook, Made Whole! The book has over 145 recipes that are all anti-inflammatory, paleo, and keto friendly. In addition to plenty of main dishes and several scrumptious-looking desserts, it has a big chapter of staples, sauces, and dressings that includes a couple of awesome paleo cheese recipes. If you’ve visited Cristina’s blog, The Castaway Kitchen, then you know she comes up with tons of creative low-carb recipes, many of which are Whole30 friendly, too.
These orange chicken skewers are a new summer favorite of mine. Marinating the chicken in both orange and lemon juice, along with some cumin and a hint of mustard, makes the chicken super juicy and savory with just a hint of intriguing sweetness. The longer you can let these babies marinate, the better! I added some orange chunks to the skewers, which turned out great–if you haven’t bit into a piece of grilled orange, you are really missing out.
There are tons of recipes I’m eager to try in Made Whole. Here is my short list, with page numbers for when you get your hands on the book:
- Zucchini latkes (p. 120)
- Brussels & bacon frittata (p. 180)
- Vietnamese crispy chicken (p. 214)
- Camarones enchilados (p. 304)
- Street taco tortillas (p. 332)
- Cortado panna cotta (p. 368)
- Flourless brownies (made with pumpkin or avocado!) (p. 372)
In the meantime, I’ll be chomping on these orange chicken skewers on top of a summery salad. This one is just arugula, baby romaine, tomato, and avocado with sherry vinaigrette. Hope you give this combo a try!
