Description

Chicken kabobs with marinated chicken, bell pepper, pineapple, mushroom and cherry tomatoes.


Ingredients

Scale

For the chicken marinade:

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the chicken kabobs:

  • 1.5 pounds chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 (20-oz) can pineapple chunks in 100% pineapple juice
  • 4 ounces medium button mushrooms
  • Half pint of cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken marinade ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Once the mixture starts boiling, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove heat and let cool.
  2. Place prepared chicken cubes in the saucepan with the marinade. Mix well and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare vegetables and soak 15 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.
  4. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium-high heat. Thread bell pepper, mushroom, pineapple, chicken and tomatoes on the skewers, leaving the chicken marinade in the saucepan.
  5. Bring the marinade to a boil.
  6. Grill the chicken kabobs for 12-15 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked through, turning and brushing with the remaining marinade occasionally.

Notes

You can use fresh pineapples for this recipe. I used canned pineapple chunks in 100% pineapple juice and reserved 1/2 cup juice from the can for the chicken marinade.
