Pineapple and Red Pepper Chicken Kebabs
Wellness Mama » Blog » Recipes » Poultry Recipes » Grilled Chicken Pineapple Kebab Recipe

Chicken pineapple kebabs are a popular dinner with my kids because of the sweet pineapple and the color of the pepper. It is easy to make, and if you don’t have a grill, it is easy to adapt to cook in the oven. These are actually really good cold since the flavors of the pineapple and pepper infuse into the chicken in the fridge. It’s also great to make extra and pull them off the skewers to top a salad the next day.

This is a meal I’d suggest letting your kids help make since they often enjoy creating their own skewers. This meal comes together quickly and is so easy to make it doesn’t even need a recipe!

    Sounds delish can’t wait to try it. I’ve never marinated chicken breast in apple cider before. Is it for taste? Does it make it more juicy?

    They tasted really good but took me forever to make. Chopping the meat took 10 min the I maranated it for 20. During that time I cut most the veggies. From there I had to construct the kabobs which took about 20 minutes then add cooking time were at over an hour. The 30 min estimate is impossible!

    I have made a stir fry with chicken and the same fruit/veggie combination! I’ll have to make it in kebab form one of these nights though!

    I could not get coconut oil so mixed some olive oil with coconut milk and it turned out great, great recipe, thanks

    Is there another options for the coconut oil? I have all other ingredients on hand 🙂

      any kind of healthy oil… olive oil would work but not quite as good. Melted butter is actually really good!
