Ginger Pineapple Kabobs


  • Bamboo skewers
  • 1 lb. raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 pineapple cut up into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 Red bell pepper, 1-inch chunks
  • 1 Red onion, 1-inch chunks
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)


  1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes (this is key, so they don't catch on fire)
  2. Place chicken in a re-sealable plastic bag; add soy sauce, oil, and ginger; seal bag and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight to marinate.
  3. Preheat gas or charcoal grill on medium heat.
  4. Place a piece of chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat so the skewer has an even amount of colorful ingredients. Discard marinade that contained raw chicken.
  5. Grill skewers on a covered grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
  6. Serve while hot and enjoy!
