Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs #SundaySupper

Delicious and succulent Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs~ Marinated tender chunks of chicken grilled on a skewer with juicy pineapple, caramelized onion and flavorful peppers.Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

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.
