1” piece of fresh ginger (minced)
1/2tsp sesame oil
1/4tsp each salt and pepper
1 dried red chili (crushed)
*Mix together in a bowl and reserve ½c for basting.
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite sized pieces) or 6 boneless skinless thighs and marinate.
2 oranges with the skin cut off (chopped into bite sized pieces)
1 onion peeled (chopped into bite sized pieces)
1/4c toasted sesame seeds (for garnish) optional

Toss the first 8 ingredients into a bowl, reserve 1/2c of the mixture for basting. Now add the chicken to the marinade. Cover and let marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour to overnight.
Remove from fridge and thread the chicken onto skewers alternating with the green peppers, oranges and onions. Sprinkle with a little salt and grill on the bbq or broil in the oven for about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the juices run clear. Be sure to baste periodically with the reserved liquid.
