CHICKEN AND PINEAPPLE KABOBS

These Chicken and Pineapple Kabobs are easy and perfect for those who want to get a jump on barbecue season. Senior and Junior too were over-the-moon happy with cleaning every last chunk from their plates. Oh, I was too.

Chicken and Pineapple Kabobs

1 cup ketchup

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar

3 tbsp honey

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

3 large, boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1″ thick chunks

1/2 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1″ thick wedges

12 skewers (I used bamboo)

spray olive oil

1) Preheat grill

2) To small saucepan, add ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, and mustard; stirring often, bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low and cook 5 minutes; remove from heat and set aside (reserve 3/4 cup of sauce for serving at the table)

3) Alternating chicken and pineapple chunks, thread on skewers; lightly spray chicken-pineapple skewers with olive oil spray; place skewers on grill and grill about 5 minutes, turn, brush grilled back sides with sauce, and grill additional 5 minutes; turn and brush newly grilled side with sauce and grill another minute or so until chicken is cooked through; serve with reserved sauce and, possibly, a nice wild rice; yum!
