Chicken Skewers with Pineapple and Red Peppers

We're finally getting our first warm days of the year and that means it's officially grilling season! Next weekend many of the grills in the U.S. will be fired up for Memorial Day. I'll be hosting my first cookout of the season then, which will also double as a going away party for my favorite foreign exchange student from Sweden. In addition to sending him off with his last taste of American burgers, I wanted to add in chicken for a lighter option for those who are dieting (seems like everyone here is still scrambling to get their summer bodies in shape!) I can't think of a better recipe to add into the mix than this Chicken Skewer with Pineapple and Red Peppers found on Golden Blossom Honey. 

Chicken Skewers

These skewers have a sweet and tangy combination because of the Asian inspired marinade combined with the sweetness of the honey, pineapple and red pepper. This recipe is a great addition to your barbecue lineup since it's on the lighter side of the menu but packs a huge punch of flavor. And while that's all well and good, honestly I'm all about eating food off a stick. Who doesn't love plucking food off of a skewer? It's the unofficial utensil of summer, right!?

1 pound boneless chicken breast halves, each cut lengthwise into 4 strips
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 red bell pepper, cut into 16 (1/2-inch) chunks
16 (1-inch) fresh pineapple chunks

8 (6-inch) skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes

What are your Memorial Day plans this year?



  1. Da Swede is finally going home? Talking about Sweden, their representative at this year's Eurosong which is currently on in Tel Aviv, is one of my faves!

    1. He'll be graduating on the 9th and will be going home shortly afterwards since his foreign exchange student program will be up then. I'm sure he'll be back though to visit his girlfriend (and she's going to see him this summer) so we haven't seen the last of him, I'm sure.

      I haven't tuned into Eurosong, but if you like the Swede, I hope they do well!

  2. Sure sounds and looks like a great way to go for chicken. Seems the cold left everyone with a little extra laze this year as far as diets and such go.

    1. The cold definitely made me lazy this winter. I tell myself I needed that extra fat for warmth anyway ;)

  3. Looks yummy, thanks for sharing the detailed recipe

  4. We always have may birthday celebrations that day. Isaak, my nephews Elijah and Edison all have birthdays in May.

    These skewers do look great. I'll have to send my sister over to see if she'd like to make something like that for the birthday get together.

    1. You have May birthdays, we have December. It's so hard when everyone has their birthday all in the same month.

  5. My daughter and I were just discussing whether to pair pineapple with meat.

    1. I am all for pairing pineapple with meat, though I no it's a no-no for some.

  6. You host an exchange student? So cool!! And look at all that colorful goodness. Seems like everyone is on a diet lately here tool, so this works for me!
