Caribbean Chicken Kebabs with Lime-Cayenne Butter

I’ve been wanting to make these Caribbean Chicken Kebabs for a while now but since I live in a condo and can’t have a charcoal grill on my deck, I decided to pull out my Cuisinart Griddler and do a little indoor grilling.  I’m sure the taste is much better on an outdoor grill but I’ll tell you what, these were still pretty darn good.  The marinade of fresh orange juice, soy, ginger and garlic gives the chicken a little flavor and the grilling brings out the natural flavors of the crisp peppers, sweet pineapple and juicy cherry tomatoes deliciously.  The Lime-Cayenne Butter gives these kebabs the slightest bit of acidity and heat but there is something about smothering fresh vegetables and lean chicken with a stick of butter that just doesn’t seem right to me.  A sprinkle of cayenne and a squeeze of a few limes before grilling still would have provided flavor with much less fat.
