Perfect Ten Dauntless Chicken Skewers
Tobias only has four fears to overcome in the simulations common in Divergent by Veronica Roth, an insanely small number compared to the majority of the population. When Tris begins her own initiation, she has only seven fears--until she finds enough strength to conquer one of them. Between Tobias' four and Tris' six fears, they make a perfect ten, just like the combination of soy and soda in this marinade. As a selfless Abnegation, Tris is accustomed to eating plain food, like chicken. These skewers take ordinary bits of chicken and transform them into a mouthwatering wonder. In a similar way, Tris keeps what is good from the life of service that she learned as an Abnegation and slowly steeps herself in what she finds positive in her life as a Dauntless.
2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1 can of lemon-lime soda
1 cup soy sauce
1 T horseradish sauce
Place the cubed chicken in a large bowl. Add soda, soy sauce and horseradish sauce. Mix the horseradish sauce into liquid with a fork. Allow to marinade at least 3 hours in the fridge. Thread the chicken onto skewers and grill or broil in the oven.
