Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup of fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into squares
  • 1 red onion, cut into squares
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by marinating the chicken in teriyaki sauce for at least 30 minutes. This will infuse the chicken with a delightful sweet and savory flavor.
  2. As the chicken marinates, soak the wooden skewers in water. This step prevents them from burning on the grill.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat, ensuring it’s clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.
  4. Thread the marinated chicken, fresh pineapple, bell pepper, and red onion onto the skewers, creating a colorful and appetizing arrangement.
  5. Season the skewers with a sprinkle of salt and pepper before placing them on the grill.
  6. Grill the skewers for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the pineapple has developed a delicious char.
  7. Once done, remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

Prep time: 40 minutes (including marination)
