Barbecued Chicken and Pineapple Skewers

I found this recipe in my Tyler Florence “Family Meal” Cookbook. This recipe looked simple, quick, and tasty so I decided to make it for dinner. I loved the flavor of the barbecue sauce and it went nicely with the chicken and pineapple. These skewers were a huge hit with my entire family, especially my daughter. I served them over garlicky basmati rice for a healthy and delicious meal.

Barbecued Chicken and Pineapple Skewers:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, chopped
  • 4 boneless & skinless chicken breasts, chopped
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Skewers, soaked in water
  • Drizzle of olive oil

Add the ketchup, soy sauce, honey, mustard, brown sugar, garlic, and lemon juice together in a small pan. Cook for 20 minutes over low heat, stirring often.

Thread the chicken and pineapple pieces onto the skewers, alternating the chicken and pineapple. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Pour half of the sauce into a small bowl then brush the skewers with the sauce.

Heat a large grill pan over medium high heat and drizzle the pan with olive oil. Cook the skewers for 2 minutes on each side (4 sides) for a total of 8 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the finished skewers from the pan and place on a serving tray. Serve the skewers with the remaining barbecue sauce. Enjoy.
