Chicken soaks up this Cuban cocktail-inspired marinade, then gets threaded on skewers with lots of fresh vegetables before hitting the grill in this easy kebab recipe. The citrus juices in the marinade help keep the chicken tender. To make these vegetarian, substitute 14 ounces of extra firm tofu for the chicken. Before skewering them, press the tofu between a kitchen towel or paper towels under a heavy skillet to remove as much liquid as possible, and then cube it. Proceed with the same directions. If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling to prevent them from burning.
