Skewered Jerk Chicken with Florida Orange Marinade {Tailgating Recipe}

Football season is underway. If you aren't a football fan then you might not be aware of this unless your friends on Facebook are fans. I say this because I have friends from all over the place who are fans of the Rams, Saints or Bears which are teams that I cheer for. I also see friends who are die-hard fans of the Steelers, Packers and yes even the Patriots. I have found that even if I don't turn on my TV, I can get the scoop of all of my favorites in my Facebook newsfeed. 

One of the best things about Football season is tailgating. I love all of the fun recipes that can be made ahead of time or cooked during the tailgating party. Families who tailgate have long standing traditions where they go every time their team is at home or just for certain games.

Are you football fans in your home? What are your favorite Sunday night football snacks? Or how about your game day traditions? What are some of your favorite recipes? Do you have any secret ingredients which make your recipes the best? Have you ever used orange juice in your recipes? This tasty fruit is a favorite secret ingredient which adds an extra zing and slight sweetness to dishes. 

We made Skewered Jerk Chicken with a Florida Orange Marinade. It was delish. I honestly forget about using OJ as a marinade and loved the chance to try out this recipe on my family. Here it is for you to try, too!
