Grilled Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs are a summer favorite. Tender juicy grilled chicken is layered with a rainbow of veggies in a tangy Pineapple BBQ Sauce.

Serve this yummy meal with an easy rice pilaf or even a simple summer salad for a great meal!

Perfect for Summer

Like most grilling recipes, kabobs are the perfect summer meal! Chicken and fresh veggies all beautifully stacked on a skewer and grilled until caramelized.

The possibilities are endless.  These Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs are delicious when you make them and perfect leftover and added to a salad for lunch the next day.

If you’re using wood skewers, be sure to give them a soak first so they don’t burn on the grill!

Or Winter…

Don’t have a grill or want to stand out in the snow? No problem, you can also make these kabobs in the oven!

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Place prepared kabobs on a foil lined pan.
  3. Bake 22-26 minutes or until chicken reaches 165°F.

Easy peasy!

One of the very best things about summer is all of the fresh produce and I try to incorporate it into every meal. These Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs are loaded up with peppers, chicken and of course pineapple and are brushed with an easy to create Pineapple Honey BBQ sauce!

Delicious BBQ Sauce is Key

Having a delicious thick BBQ sauce is great to add that sticky caramelized finish we all love so much.

Combine KC Masterpiece® BBQ Sauce & Dry Rubs with ANY liquid to create a delicious sauce or marinade. I simply added pineapple juice to the mix… I often add it to homemade bbq sauce for a basting sauce too. This makes tender grilled kabobs with loads of sweet tangy pineapple flavor.

Great for Marinades

Making a great chicken marinade is easy and delicious! Most marinades need a bit of acidity and in this case, I use pineapple juice. Not only does this tenderize the meat (don’t worry, it’s just a bit, it won’t make the meat mushy) but it also adds flavor and the sugars in the juice help to caramelize the sauce!

If you haven’t seen these mixes yet, I’m kind of in love with them! Each box comes with two pouches of mix that can be combined with any liquid to create your own sauces and marinades…  think beer, cola, juice or root beer to create the perfect BBQ sauce for your summer grilling!

  1. Can’t wait to try this recipe which I’m going to try with both shrimp and chicken. I am a little confused though. Instructions Step 1 for sauce says 3/4 c pineapple juice with 1 pouch KC bbq sauce and dry rub.
    Then step 1 for skewers says 1 c pineapple juice and one pouch KC bbq sauce/dry rub.
    Do I need two packages of the KC sauce dry rub?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Vicki, one package comes with 2 pouches. So we use one pouch to make the sauce and the second pouch to marinate the chicken. Hope that helps!
