  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1- inch fresh ginger grated
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • pounds chicken breast cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 red onion cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ pineapple cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ½ red bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ green bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 24 6-inch wooden skewers
  1. Make the marinade by combining the pineapple juice, olive oil, soy sauce, cider vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and black pepper in a bowl. Add the chicken cubes and onions and marinate for at least 4 hours to overnight.
  2. Soak the skewers in water for about 30 minutes.
  3. Build the skewers by threading each with a piece of red onion, red pepper, pineapple, marinated chicken cube and green pepper.
  4. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 7 to 10 minutes until it thickens to a glaze. Set the glaze aside to use as a basting sauce.
  5. Pre-heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium high heat (about 350˚F on an electric grill). Place the skewers on the pre-heated grill and grill for 10 to 15 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the chicken is cooked through. During the grilling process, turn the skewers a few times and brush on the basting sauce.
  6. Remove the skewers from the grill and baste one last time with the remaining sauce. Serve immediately.
