Chicken, Pineapple & Strawberry Kabobs

Print
If you're looking for a refreshing chicken kabob recipe for this summer's grilling season, my friend Megan has one to share! She prepared these for her Memorial Day Dinner and these were wonderful. The combination of fruit, chicken and citrusy marinade was delicious

Chicken, Pineapple & Strawberry Kabobs
recipe from AllRecipes
1 cup lemon juice
2 (8 ounce) cans pineapple chunks, juice reserved
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
1 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
24 large strawberries

In a shallow glass bowl combine lemon juice, juice from pineapple can, salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix together. Add cubed chicken and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Preheat grill to medium heat.

In a small bowl combine the melted butter or margarine, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg.

Lightly oil grate. Using metal or soaked wooden skewers arrange chicken, pineapple chunks and strawberries on each stick (approximately 4 to 6 pieces of each item per skewer). Brush kabobs with butter or margarine mixture place on grill and cook, turning on all sides, until chicken is cooked through and strawberries are sizzling. Approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
