This is an easy grilling recipe for Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs. The chicken is marinated in a sweet pineapple marinade and the kabobs are brushed with a spicy pineapple sauce during grilling. Sponsored by Gold’n Plump.
Summer and grilling go hand in hand. I love it when I am driving in the car with the windows down or taking a walk and I can smell someone cooking dinner on the grill.
We aren’t one of those families that use our grill all year long. It is just too cold in the winter here to want to stand outside grilling.
So, I just pulled the grill out recently and Vanessa helped me clean it up. One of the first things we made were Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs
The kabobs were filled with tender pieces of chicken between juicy pineapple chunks, sweet peppers and flavorful onions. The chicken was marinated before grilling and the kabobs were brushed with a spicy pineapple sauce while they were being grilled. What a great combination of flavors!

Gold’n Plump is the brand of chicken I always use for so many reasons, but the main one is that it is always delicious and it is what my family wants.
Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs Recipe
To make the pineapple marinade, drain the juice from a 20 ounce can of pineapple chunks into a glass bowl. The pineapple juice will be used for both the marinade and the grilling sauce.
Mix together 1/4 cup of the pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic powder and olive oil. Set aside.
Cut one pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts into pieces.
Place all of the pieces in the marinade, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Once the chicken is done marinating, make the pineapple grilling sauce.
In a small saucepan, mix together 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, honey, sriracha sauce, olive oil and soy sauce.
Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
Once it starts to boil, turn the heat down and simmer for 4-6 minutes.
Remove from heat and set aside.
Cut red, orange and yellow peppers into large chunks.
Slice an onion into large chunks.
Grab the drained pineapple chunks and the marinated chicken.
Thread the ingredients onto 6 kabobs, alternating items, putting 6 pieces of chicken on each kabob.
Don’t forget that wooden skewers may need to be soaked for 30 minutes before using.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
Brush the pineapple grilling sauce over the kabobs.
Lightly oil the grill grates and then place the kabobs on the grill.
Cook over medium-high heat, turning and brushing with pineapple grilling sauce often, for about 12-15 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked.
Remove the spicy pineapple chicken kabobs from the grill and serve immediately. The combination of the sweet pineapple and honey with the spicy sriracha sauce is fantastic!
