Ingredients

  • 24 wooden skewers (8 inch)
  • 1 package (1.25 lb) ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups fruit chutney, warmed

Steps

  • 1
    Soak skewers in water 30 minutes to prevent burning.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, heat oven to 375°F. Line 15x10x1-inch pan with foil or cooking parchment paper; lightly spray foil or paper with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix all ingredients except chutney. Shape 1 rounded tablespoon of the turkey mixture around top third of each skewer.
  • 3
    Place skewers in pan with turkey in center of pan and skewers to outside of pan.
  • 4
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink in center. Just before serving, brush 1/4 cup of the warmed chutney on turkey. Serve remaining chutney as dipping sauce.

  • Skewers can be prepared 4 to 5 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate until serving time, then bake as directed.
  • Garnish the serving platter with Swiss chard leaves, papaya slices and sliced star fruit.
