Have you noticed for some unknown reason when you place food on a stick or skewer, it just tastes better? There are so many options with skewers when it comes to ingredients. We even have an amazing Pizza Kabob recipe that you just must try. That just goes to show you that anything can be on a skewer. But today we are talking about Barbecue Skewers with grilled chicken and pineapple and slathered with barbecue sauce.
We have seen many variations of this dish such as Hawaiian Chicken kabobs or Polynesian kabobs, Sweet and Spicy Kabobs but we are from Texas so we just call them Barbecue Skewers.
We are using fresh pineapple to grill and it totally makes a difference. Cutting up a pineapple is easy with the right tools and the fresh flavor it brings is well worth the extra time. We love using this Pineapple de-corer/slicer/peeler/cutter/wedger on Amazon.
We do make things a little easier by using a store-bought bbq sauce on these Chicken and Pineapple kabobs or skewers. But your favorite sauce will do but we like to lean towards a sweet but spicy sauce for these skewers.
These Chicken Pineapple Skewers come off the grill with a charred smoky flavor. The flavors of the chicken, pineapple, bell peppers, and onions are amazing.
These Barbecue Chicken Pineapple Skewers can be served with:
Chicken and Pineapple Barbecue Skewers
- Divide chicken cubes, pineapple cubes, bell pepper slices, onion chunks into 8 equal portions for each skewer
- Grill on medium-high heat until chicken is no longer pink in the center (about 6-8 minutes on each side)
