Expert Tips

To broil, place kabobs on broiler pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times provided above as a guide.

Peach or apricot preserves or orange marmalade can substitute for the plum preserves.

Garnish the plate with slices of fresh plum and a tiny bunch of grapes.

Serve the chicken kabobs on a bed of hot cooked couscous or a mixture of white and wild rice. Round out the meal with a cool tossed salad and a sautéed or steamed vegetable combination of julienned zucchini, yellow squash, carrots and chopped onion.
