It’s grilling season y’all! I’m so excited to cook ALL our meals on the grill from here on out. haha ok ok maybe not alllll our meals.
But it’s weird. I live in sunny California. And, you’d think grilling season is year round. Technically, it probably is. Buuut, for some reason I grill a lot more in the summer months and basically none in the “winter” months.
So here we are… in grilling “season” and I’d like to share some grilled meaty skewers that I think you might like. I mean… if you clicked on these Hawaiin pineapple skewers, you’re probably into meaty skewers, so check out these peanut chicken skewers, or these soy marinated chicken skewers, this grilled balsamic strawberry chicken, or even these pepper steak skewers! Ok, apparently I titled all of those recipes kabobs and not skewers, but basically the same thing, right?
I just googled “what is the difference between skewers and kabobs and now I feel like I should be calling these kabobs. Apparently skewers are the thing itself that you use to make the kabobs. Soo.. skewers are what you use to assemble meaty and veggie kabobs, if that makes sense. Kabobs from here on out.
And don’t get me started on the whole “kabob” verse “kebab” spelling. I chose kabob early on and I’m committing. So anyway, let’s jump into the recipe and make some Hawaiian Chicken BBQ Kabobs!
Pineapple, chicken, and red onion are threaded onto skewers and brushed with BBQ sauce. Grill them up for the perfect dinner – Hawaiian Chicken BBQ Kabobs.
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Dice the chicken breast, pineapple and red onion into large, bite size pieces. Thread the chicken, pineapple and red onion onto the skewers. Brush the skewers with the BBQ sauce.
Place them on the grill and cook for 7-10 minutes per side, or until the chicken is completely cooked through. Serve with BBQ sauce for dipping, if desired.
If you’re using wood skewers, be sure to soak them in water 30 minutes prior to cooking so they don’t burn.
