I love having easy to prepare summer meals that we can throw on the grill. And these are one of our favorites.

A few side dishes that we like to serve with these chicken kabobs are Corn On The Cob, Bacon Ranch Coleslaw and Squash Zucchini and Tomato Casserole.

A refreshing summer drink that is great to serve when grilling is this delicious Homemade Strawberry Lemonade.

How To Make Grilled Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Combine pineapple juice, ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, rice vinegar, ground ginger, minced garlic, and sesame oil in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Add salt and pepper and stir again.

Transfer cubed chicken to a large Ziploc bag and pour half of the marinade into bag. Refrigerate for at least one hour and soak wood skewers in water for one hour as well.

Toss diced vegetables and pineapple in remaining olive oil and assemble skewers by alternating between chicken, red onion, bell pepper, and pineapple.

Brush prepared skewers with remaining marinade and grill over medium heat. Turn and baste kabobs every 5 minutes until chicken is fully cooked, about 15-20 minutes.
