Chicken Pineapple Kabobs
This is another recipe from Coastal Living Cookbook. I have to tell you this marinade was fantastic!

I just halved a half a boneless chicken breast, and threaded the marinated chicken on a skewer. Cook for at most 5 minutes per side on the grille, and they were cooked perfectly. I was very paranoid I would over cook, but also didn’t want to under cook, so it was just luck they came out perfectly. I marinated the pineapple spears along with the chicken and grille separately on the grille. The chicken breasts were on the smaller side so when I halved them they were the perfect size to cook quickly. These skewers are perfect served with my Rice Pilaf recipe.

This marinade is definitely a keeper and very easy to make.

  1. I do these at least twice a month, but I thread chunks of chicken, pineapple, and red onion or zucchini, usually, on one skewer. Amazing flavors! These look delicious, Sandra!
