Chicken, there are so many ways to prepare chicken. the most basic way (and one of the most fattening ways) to prepare chicken is frying it. Another is the bbq chicken although this gives the chicken unhealthy burn marks. Then the latest one is the orange chicken. Well here is another way to prepare chicken Japanese style.

1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
1 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 cup seltzer water or club soda
1/3 cup dry sherry
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar Substitute (e.g. nutra-sweet, Equal, Splenda…)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger root
12 oz boneless skinless chicken breast halves
8 green onions

Soak twelve 6-inch wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. In a small mixing bowl combine the orange peel, extract, club soda, sherry, soy sauce, sugar substitute, garlic, and ginger root. Set aside 1/4 cup of the marinade mixture to serve with the cooked kabobs.

Cut chicken breast halves into 1-inch pieces. Cut green onions into 1  1/2 inch lengths. Thread 3 chicken pieces and 2 onion pieces onto each wooden skewer, alternating chicken and onions. Place kabobs in a shallow dish and pour marinade over kabobs. Marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, turning kabobs once. Remove kabobs from marinade, reserving marinade.

Preheat the broiler. Place kabobs on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 10 minutes, or till chicken is tender and no pink remains, turning and brushing with reserved marinade once.

Makes 12 skewers.   3.2 carbs each.
