  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar packed
  • 2 tbsp canola or sesame oil not toasted
  • ¼ cup soy sauce use sweet dark if available
  • ¼ cup Ketchup
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed and minced
  • 2 pieces ginger peeled and grated
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp white pepper fine ground

Meat & Veggies

  • 3 chicken breasts boneless skinless half-breasts, dried, trimmed and pierced* cut into 1 ½ inch cubes
  • 2 green bell peppers cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
  • 3 red bell peppers cut into 1 ½ inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion cut into 1 ½ inch pieces (only use large pieces)
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple cut into 1 ½ inch pieces


  • Mix the first 9 ingredients together and whisk to create the marinade. Set aside.
  • Dry the chicken with paper towels and trim any fat or connective tissue. *Using a blade tenderizer or sharp fork, pierce the breasts both front and back sides. Cut into 1 ½ inch cubes. Place in marinade tray or covered baking dish.
  • Add the pieces of pepper, onion and pineapple to the chicken.
  • Pour marinade over kabob pieces and mix well. Cover ingredients and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Using metal or wood skewers, thread chicken, peppers, onion and pineapple; leaving about 2 inches at the end. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes prior to loading. Reserve remaining marinade for basting.
  • Clean and brush grill grates with light oil. Preheat outdoor grill to medium high.
  • Place skewers on grill, allowing space between each kabob. Grill, turning every 5 minutes and basting with marinade until chicken is done; about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on the heat of your grill.
  • Remove kabobs from grill, tent with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serves 8. (each half chicken breast yields meat for 6 kabobs)
