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

Sweet BBQ Chicken Kabobs and Our Menu Plan

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

Delicious kabobs for the grill. Recipe from HoosierHomemade.com


  • 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


  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.


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.
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.

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.

  6. Your kabobs look amazing! My mouth is watering! I love serving kabobs at parties. You can do the prep ahead of time, the cook quickly, and everyone just seems to like eating off a stick. I’ll bet everyone loved them. It sounds like it was a nice get together. Thank for a great post!

  7. Love chicken Kabobs, want to make them for a 4th of July Party! I haven’t used pineapple on them before but I think I am going to try that because I Love pineapple!

  8. These look really good, Liz! When I’ve made kabobs, we’ve done the meat and veggies separately…. I’m guessing this way the veggies get hot enough to make sure that any raw meat juices are cooked. So, I’ll have to give it a try. We love that BBQ sauce too, so I’m looking forward to trying this one. Have a blessed week.
