Plum-Glazed Chicken Kabobs

Plum-Glazed Chicken Kabobs

"These creative kabobs make a great first impression, according to Nancy Morrison. 'I brought them to a neighborhood dinner when we moved to our new home. People couldn't wait 'til dinner and started snatching them as soon as I walked in the door,' she reports from Midlothian, Virginia. 'They just couldn't resist the tantalizing aroma.'"

Made this for **RECIPE GROUP** and all I can say is WOW! We loved it! I went to two major grocery stores and neither had plum jam so I settled for seedless blackberry jam as another reviewer. ...
