  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lb mini orange, red, and yellow peppers red and yellow peppers
  • 1 onion
  • 20 oz can pineapple chunks pineapple juice reserved

Pineapple Marinade:

Pineapple Grilling Sauce:


Pineapple Marinade:

  • Start by draining 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.
  • Cut each chicken breast into pieces. Place all of the pieces in the marinade, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

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.

Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs:

  • Cut red, orange and yellow peppers into chunks. Slice an onion into 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 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 12-15 minutes, until chicken is fully cooked.
