With the weather being almost 80 degrees, it’s so hard being inside working on my computer. I just want to be in my garden planting veggies and flowers and grilling outside. So I decided to make Kebabs for Sunday Supper!
After grilling these Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs I was having a hard time keeping my kids and hubs from eating them before supper was served. My daughter said this was the best thing that I have ever made for dinner! Not only do they look beautiful, but the marinade is incredible. I placed the chicken in a big Ziploc with the marinade overnight in the refrigerator.
It takes a bit of prep work chopping the veggies and then skewering them, but it is worth the extra effort for a delicious entree.
Chop veggies and pineapple, or use a can of pineapple chunks.
Make marinade. Cover chicken with marinade in a Ziploc baggie, set in refrigerator over night.
Soak wooden skewers in water for 1 hour.
- ⅓ cup ketchup
- ⅓ cup packed dark brown sugar
- ⅓ cup low-sodium soy sauce
- ¼ cup pineapple juice
- 4 Tbsp olive oil, divided, plus more for brushing grill
- 1½ Tbsp rice vinegar
- 4 garlic cloves, minced (4 tsp)
- 1 Tbsp minced ginger
- ½ tsp sesame oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1¾ lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped into 1¼-inch cubes
- 3 cups canned pineapple chunks
- 1½ large green peppers, chopped into 1¼-inch pieces
- 1 large red onion, chopped into 1¼-inch pieces
- In a mixing bowl whisk together ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger and sesame oil. Stir in ¾ tsp pepper and season with salt if desired.
- Place chicken in a gallon size Ziploc bag.
- Reserve ½ cup of the marinade in refrigerator then pour remaining marinade over chicken.
- Seal bag and refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
- Soak 10 wooden skewer sticks in a bowl of water for 1 hour.
- Preheat a grill over medium high heat to 400 degrees.
- Meanwhile, drizzle remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil over red onion, bell pepper and pineapple and toss. Season red onion and bell pepper with salt and pepper, then thread red onion, bell pepper, pineapple and chicken onto skewers until all of the chicken has been used.
- Brush grill grates with olive oil then place skewers on grill
- Grill 5 minutes then brush along tops of kebabs with ¼ cup of remaining marinade.
- Rotate to opposite side and brush remaining ¼ cup of marinade on opposite side and allow to grill about 4 minutes longer, or until chicken registers 165 degrees an instant read thermometer. Serve warm.
