Mandarin Chicken Kabobs

Mandarin Chicken Kabobs are marinated with a mandarin marinade and roasted with vegetables.  This dish goes great with couscous and pita bread or served on top of a salad. Garnish with feta and serve with Minted Ricotta Hummus.

Prep Time: 20 minutes + 60 minutes refrigeration time

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 – 6

Yield: 6 – 9 skewers




  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1 pound of your favorite spring vegetables, cleaned and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 seedless mandarin orange with skin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • ½ cup Frigo® Whole Milk Ricotta
  • ½ cup Frigo® Feta Crumbles, divided
  • ½ cup Greek salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons ras el hanout seasoning, or combine cumin, coriander, chili, and pumpkin pie spices

Minted Ricotta Hummus:

  • 1 (10-ounce) container Sriracha carrot hummus, or substitute your favorite flavor
  • ½ cup Frigo® Whole Milk Ricotta
  • ¼ cup Frigo® Feta Crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons finely minced mint
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger powder


  • 1 pack of 10-inch bamboo skewers


In a blender or food processor, add the marinade ingredients (including mandarin orange with skin). Blend for 1-2 minutes or until everything is a smooth paste consistency.

Place the chicken in a gallon-sized zip top bag or medium-sized bowl. Spoon the marinade over the chicken and toss well. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour, but best when it marinates overnight.

Meanwhile, soak bamboo skewers in water until ready to use.

Make the minted ricotta hummus. In a blender, add all of the minted ricotta hummus ingredients and pulse until smooth. Scrape into a small bowl, cover, and set aside in the fridge until ready to use.

Preheat the grill to high or set broiler in oven to high.

When ready to assemble, in a medium-sized bowl, toss spring vegetables in 2 tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Scrape most of the marinade off the chicken so it is lightly coated, but not caked on. Alternate threading the chicken with vegetables or mandarin wedges onto the bamboo skewers. Repeat until all ingredients are used.

Place the skewers on the grill or broiler pan in an oven. Cook until the chicken is caramelized on the outside and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes on each side.

Garnish kabobs with feta and serve with the Minted Ricotta Hummus.

This dish is great served alongside couscous or pita and served on top of a salad.
