Instructions

  1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a large zip-top bag. Add the chicken cubes, onion and apple quarters. Refrigerate 2 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium high. Remove the kebab ingredients from the marinade. Reserve 1 cup marinade and set aside; discard remaining marinade. On long bamboo skewers, alternate the chicken, onion and apple. Grill the kebabs 7 minutes. Turn them over, baste with marinade and cook another 7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan. Add cranberries and maple syrup. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes. Serve with the kebabs.
