Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs

Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs


Perfect for the grill, try these chicken and pineapple kebabs at your next summer cookout. Grilling pineapple and other fruits bring out the sweetness without having to add sugar and calories.

Yield: 2 servings, 8 skewers



  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 oz chicken breast, cooked and cut into 16 cubes
  • 1 cup fresh cubed pineapple
  • 1 cup cherry or plum tomatoes
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces


Place the first 6 ingredients into a bowl and whisk together to create the marinade. In a glass baking dish, brush the chicken with the marinade. Cover and place in refrigerator to chill for 60 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Use presoaked skewers, and alternate chicken, pineapple, tomato, green pepper and red onion. Grill kebabs for approximately 10 minutes, until chicken is cooked thoroughly.
