Grilled marinated chicken, pineapple chunks, red pepper…what’s not to love?

Kabobs just scream summer to me. They are something my family loves in the summertime. We thread on a variety of veggies, sometimes potatoes, and a meat of some sort.

Grilled marinated chicken, pineapple chunks, red pepper…what’s not to love?  For full flavor, marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes before threading it on skewers with pineapple chunks and red peppers.



Chicken, Pineapple, and Red Pepper Kabobs

Ingredients
  • 8 bamboo skewers
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast tenders (not breaded)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Aminos (soy sauce substitute)
  • 8 tsp. local natural honey
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 purple containers of fresh pineapple chunks
  • 4 red bell peppers, cut into 1" chunks             

Soak bamboo skewers in water to cover for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cut chicken into 1-inch pieces; place in resealable food-storage plastic bag or container. Add next three ingredients; seal bag and shake gently to mix.

Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to marinate.                     
 
Heat gas or charcoal grill.
 
Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Thread chicken, pineapple chunks and red pepper pieces onto bamboo skewers in whatever order you wish, dividing evenly among skewers.
 
Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Serve immediately.

(21 Day Fixers:  2 kabobs count as -- 1 red, 1 purple, 1 green, and 2 tsp.)

  1. Do you think you could make these in the oven as well? It's not been grill friendly here lately, and these sound great! TIA

  2. How many does this serve? What is the serving size for one person or are you taking the meat and pineapples off of the skewer and putting the ingredients in the containers? Sorry for all the questions but I would love to try this recipe!
