I love chicken and pineapple together these Chicken Pineapple Skewers are amazing. The combination is great. These skewers are quick and delicious. I just prepped all of the ingredients and put in separate bowls while the bamboo skewers were soaking. Then I assembled the skewers and threw them on the grill. The cutting and chopping are what took the longest. Publix still has their fresh pineapple for $2.99 this week as well as their 20-oz. Cans B1G1. You could use this recipe to make as little or as much as you need. Try this for something different with the chicken in your freezer!
Chicken Pineapple Skewers Recipe:
Chicken Pineapple Skewers Ingredients:
1 fresh pineapple cut into large chunks
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, in large chunks
1 large sweet onion
1 large green pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes
How To Make Chicken Pineapple Skewers:
Season chicken with salt and pepper and cut into large chunks. You want to cut each breast into 12 chunks, depending on the size of your breast. Try to get 3 pieces per skewer. If your chicken breasts are on the small side, you may need to cut up 4 breasts instead of 3. Set chicken aside.
Cut the onion into 16 wedges. The layers will peal apart, making it easier to stick as many or as little as you want on the skewer. Cut the pepper into 1-inch pieces and set aside.
You are now ready to begin assembling the skewers. On 12 metal or soaked bamboo skewers, alternately thread the chicken, vegetables, and pineapple. I went in this order: chicken, pineapple, onion, pepper, tomato, chicken, pineapple, onion, pepper, tomato, chicken, pineapple, onion, pepper, tomato). Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until chicken is no longer pink.
This is really more of a method than a recipe. Kabobs can be done hundreds of ways. My brother loves to do steak with peppers and onions. I’ve had his, and they are delicious. But, that will have to be another post!
For a special twist, try partially cooking bacon in the microwave, and then wrap each piece of chicken with the bacon before threading on the skewer. YUMMY! I probably would have done that, but I didn’t have any bacon in the fridge.
