Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs and Our Menu Plan

Happy Monday! Here we come Summer! The boys are out of school, and we start the week with 6 a.m. Football practices, 5 Baseball games and my trip to Wilton! Yes!! I’m heading to Wilton this week, I can hardly wait! And, of course…I’ll share my experience with you.

Yesterday, we made these Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs, so I could share the recipe with you. I served them with fruit salad and chips, and everyone loved them. The sauce is a mixture of BBQ and orange juice, giving it a sweet but tangy flavor.

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs and Our Menu Plan

Delicious kabobs for the grill. Recipe from HoosierHomemade.com

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1-2 pounds chicken, boneless skinless, cut into chunks
  • 1 whole fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 1 each red, yellow and green peppers {you can use orange too if you like}
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce {we used Sweet Baby Rays}
  • 6 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, thawed

Instructions

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Thread chicken, peppers and pineapple onto skewers.
  3. Mix barbecue sauce and orange juice concentrate in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Heat the grill to medium-high.
  5. Brush half of the sauce onto the skewers.
  6. Grill 8-10 minutes or until chicken is done, turning occasionally.
  7. Brush on remainder of sauce while skewers are cooking.

Notes

This recipe makes about 18-20 skewers, with a little sauce left over. You can easily cut the recipe in half.
To grill pineapple, cut a 1/2 inch thick slice of fresh pineapple and place on grill. Turning once until the pineapple is slightly brown and there are grill marks on the pineapple.
Variations:
In place of chicken, you can also use salmon, pork or shrimp. In place of the fresh pineapple, you can use a can of pineapple chunks.

Nutrition

  • Serving Size: 18-20 skewers

This recipe is adapted from Kraft Foods.

Be sure to soak the skewers in water to prevent burning. You can also wrap the ends in foil.

After brushing on the sauce, you can let the skewers sit for a few minutes to let the sauce soak in.

Doug is really enjoying his new grill! And I’m enjoying not cooking as much.
