Grilled Pineapple BBQ Chicken Kabobs

Once warm weather hits, I’m yearning to cook on the grill almost every night. There is just something to be said about being outside making dinner, especially more than ever now.

Whenever I make anything on the grill, I like to prepare a marinade for my meats. It helps tenderize them but it all helps with the flavor profile. I like to consider high heat when making my sauces because I love the caramelization that sugary sauces have when thrown onto the grill and the meat gets all nice and lightly charred.

These chicken kabobs could not be easier to make. The bbq sauce is minimally doctored up from store-bought sauce, and everything else is skewered and thrown on the grill!

The bbq sauce doubles as a quick and flavorful marinade and dipping sauce!

Tips for grilled pineapple BBQ chicken kabobs

  • If you’re going to be using wooden skewers, give them a good 10 minute soak in water (I put them on a rimmed baking sheet and cover with water) prior to skewering the chicken and vegetables on. It helps them not burn on the grill!
  • Put everything on the skewer close together so they cook evenly.
  • Plan out the timing of this because it does require at least two hours of marinating.
  • This can be made on the outdoor grill or indoor grill/skillet!
