Rosemary Skewered Chicken with Orange Glaze

This recipe was on the Biggest Loser tonight and I thought it looked so good. It showed them making it and it was really simple....I am going to try it VERY soon....

-Juice of 3 oranges
-1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
-1 Tablespoon Honey
-2 Garlic Cloves, chopped
-1 Tablespoon finely chopped peeled fresh ginger
-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
-6 Sprigs of Rosemary about 10-12 inches long, with half of the leaves removed

-Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium heat
-Place the orange juice into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the orange juice is the consistency of a very thin soup
-Add the dijon, honey, garlic, and ginger and continue cooking over medium heat for 2-3 minutes
-Remove from heat to allow flavors to meld and reserve
-Evenly divide the cubed chicken among the rosemary sprigs (they had 5 cubes per sprig) and skewer the chicken onto the exposed part of the rosemary sprigs
-Lightly brush the grill with oil and grill chicken for 1-2 minutes on each side or until internal temp reaches 165 F
-Remove skewers from grill, drizzle with orange sauce and serve immediately

The whole point of this recipe was to give a healthy alternative to chicken wings for the super bowl parties that are right around the corner....I think I might try them then.....
