I made this for a Hawaiian-themed bbq. I read through many of the other reviews & found them very helpful. I gathered together the most pertinent info & the dish turned out wonderful! Here are the changes I made to make the dish 5*'s.I used rice vinegar instead of sherry. Rice vinegar makes chicken tender.I used fresh ginger & garlic. Triple when using fresh herbs.I added fresh mushrooms. You could add other veggies too. As another reviewer pointed out, it is safer to separate the chicken & veggies.After marinating several hours, I skewered the chicken and vegetables separately as they are done at different times. I soaked the skewers in water to keep them from burning.After I skewered the chicken and vegetables I used the left over marinade from the vegetables, like other reviewers suggested, heated it on the stove until boiling & added 2T of cornstarch dissolved in a 1/4 -1/3 of water to make a basting sauce which I applied during the last few minutes of grilling.The dish was a hit! Everyone loved it! The basting sauce was worth the extra few minutes. It really topped it off.Yes, I would make it again! It was worth the time, which really wasn't much. What was time consuming for me was deciding what to make, reading the reviews & putting it all together.I wrote this review hoping to condense all the reviews I read for other viewers so they don't have to go through all the time & trouble I did.-23 Aug 2005

I used fresh pinapple for these and made the mistake of putting the chicken and pinapple on the skewers the night before and marinating. When we ate them the chicken was pasty on the inside. I think it was because the enzyme in the fresh pineapple ate away at the chicken all night. I would recommend marinating the chicken and the pineapple in separate containers and then putting on skewers at the last minute if you are using fresh pinapple. Otherwise it was delicious.-20 Jul 2006


I used 1 tsp. sesame oil (instead of 1 Tbl.) to cut down on the fat, and there was no difference! Marinating overnight is the key. I baked them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or so. Awesome!! Thanks for the recipe!-20 Jul 2002

Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Skewers

You guys, I know summer is over. However, I really need to share these Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs with you! If you can’t use your grill to cook these kebabs, I’ve got you covered with a just-as-simple oven recipe! So make them. Soon!

Living here in Phoenix, we use our grill a lot. But if I can be honest with you for a minute, there are times when it’s just too darn hot to be outside in the blazing heat – and I’d rather turn on my oven! *gasp* That’s why I love recipes like these Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs – they are so easy and I can cook them on the grill or the oven! Both methods are easy – so use whichever one works best for your family!

How do you make Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs?

It is so easy to make Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs – and don’t just serve them in summer! I’ve included instructions on how to bake them below!

To make these Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs, you’ll need to start by marinating the chicken in a yummy blend of tropical flavor. I find it easiest to mix the marinade in a bowl, then pour it over the chicken. But if you’d like one less dirty dish, feel free to add everything to the zip-top bag, seal it, and give it a good mix with your hands before allowing it to marinade.

While your chicken is marinating, you’ll want to soak your wooden skewers so they don’t burn! I usually use one of my 9吉-in. baking dishes with just enough water to cover the skewers. Give them at least 30 minutes to soak.

Next, you’ll want to thread the chicken, bell peppers, onion, and pineapple alternately onto the wooden skewers.

A few minutes on the grill (or your oven!) is all that’s left before you can chow down and enjoy the tropical taste of these easy Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs!

Can you make Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs in the oven?

To make Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs in the oven, you’ll marinate and assemble them just like mentioned above in the grilling instructions (and below in the recipe card). Instead of grilling them, you will put them on a lightly greased baking sheet. Pop them in a 450°F oven for 10 minutes. Carefully turn the kebabs over and continue to bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink and the internal temperature reads 165°F.

Can you put wooden skewers in the oven?

Yes, you can! Just be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes prior to use.

Try easy pineapple chicken kabobs today!

It is sure to be a huge hit! This recipe is so easy to adapt for what you have on hand.

We have used both fresh pineapple and canned pineapple in a pinch. Sometimes we switch up the veggies for what we have on hand.

It is truly easy to make work for everyone. This is one of those meals that our entire family loved this recipe.

We have a lot of fun making these skewers. It is very simple for everyone to choose their favorite veggies and even add extra.

You can also really feed a crowd on a budget with this recipe. The meat stretches because of all of the vegetables.

Alternate with extra vegetables if you need to and stretch your meat! We also like teriyaki chicken kabobs.

Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

I love making these scrumptious Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs because they&rsquore such a great all-in-one meal. The flavors also complement each other so well, and everything cooks evenly after only 10 minutes.

  • 1 lb. (2) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 bell pepper (any color)
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 (20 oz.) can sliced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup your favorite BBQ sauce, divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Wooden or stainless steel skewers*
  1. Cut chicken, bell pepper, red onion and pineapple into bite-sized chunks. Place in separate bowls.
  2. Start layering ingredients onto your skewers, alternating chicken, bell pepper, red onion and pineapple chunks. Place skewers on a large plate or cutting board. Repeat until you have 5-6 full skewers. Brush all evenly with 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat your outdoor gas grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Once hot, place skewers on grill and cook on all sides until chicken is cooked and vegetables have softened, 9-10 minutes. With a clean brush, coat skewers again with 1/4 cup more BBQ sauce. Carefully remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  4. To remove cooked skewers to a plate, slide a fork from the top to the bottom of each skewer.

If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 10 minutes before skewering with ingredients. This will prevent them from burning on your outdoor grill/grill pan.


  1. In a jar or bowl combine the marinade ingredients. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Let the marinade sit to get the flavors to meld and store in the fridge until ready to use
  2. Skewer the chicken, pineapple, peppers and onions alternately and place into a shallow pan or large resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over top and toss to coat.
  3. Marinate for 30 minutes, turning every so often.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium-medium high and cook for 12-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and their is a good char on the vegetables.
  5. Serve with rice of your choice, sprinkle with sliced green onions and drizzle a little more tamari over top.



1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (at least 36 pieces), all visible fat discarded, cut into bite-size pieces

2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce

20 oz. canned, unsweetened juice from pineapple chunks can

2 clove fresh garlic, minced OR

1 tsp. jarred, minced garlic

Chicken Kebabs

36 pineapple chunks, packed in their own juice

2 fresh, chopped bell peppers (chopped into 36 pieces)

1 pint grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes

2 cups brown rice, cooked to package instructions OR

Hawaiian Chicken Skewers from Express Lane Cooking

The secret sauce to Shawn’s cookbook Express Lane Cooking is efficiency. How many times do you find yourself at the grocery store buying the mega pack of chicken breasts for a recipe that calls for just two?

Or opening a whole can of chipotle peppers when your recipe calls for just a tablespoon of the adobo sauce?

With the plethora of recipe creating inspiration that can easily be found online, in magazines and on TV, home cooks can easily be swayed from one of the very basic fundamentals of cooking: cook with the ingredients you already have on hand.

The thing that makes this cookbook special is how Shawn shares techniques and ideas for creating 3 recipes that use the same 5 basic ingredients. It’s how every budget minded cook prepares meals, but one that so many of us simply don’t follow because we don’t want to eat the same chicken dinner again tonight.

Variety is key to happy eating and Shawn has figured out this secret and is happy to share her meal planning secret to success.

When I was choosing a recipe to make from her cookbook I seriously had a hard time deciding. Shawn has meal planning recipes for all the basic proteins, pastas and poultry. Even dessert gets a meal planning hand.

Given that I was the one who had just bought a mega pack of chicken breasts from the grocery store and I had a few bell peppers about to expire rattling around the crisper, these Hawaiian Chicken Skewers were about to become dinner.

This recipe is one of the three that use the same 5 ingredients I normally have in my fridge or on hand: Chicken, soy sauce, purple onions, bell pepper and that jar of orange marmalade that can be found lollying around in the depths of my fridge
