21 Day Fix Pineapple Chicken SkewersMy family LOVES these pineapple chicken skewers. I’ve made them on the grill and under the broiler in the oven. This is a recipe from Fixate*, the 21-Day Fix cookbook. I double the recipe every time, but there are never any leftovers! This is one of the recipes I shared in my FREE Healthy Dinner Challenge Group this week. I’ve shared some of my favorite slow cooker recipes with the group, plus a few others like these chicken skewers. If you want to join me, it’s not too late.

Pineapple Chicken Skewers

Prep 20 min. ∙ Cook 10 min. ∙ Makes 4 (2 skewers per person) ∙ Source: Fixate (21-Day Fix Cookbook)

Ingredients

  • 8 bamboo skewers
  • 1 lb. raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cut into 16 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium tamari soy sauce, gluten-free
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 (8-oz.) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained (I used a fresh pineapple)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 16 1-inch chunks
  • ½ large red onion, cut into 16 1-inch chunks

Directions

1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
2. Place chicken in resealable plastic bag (or container); add soy sauce, oil, and ginger; seal bag and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to marinate.
3. Pre-heat gas or charcoal grill on medium heat.
4. Place a piece of chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat, so the skewer has two pieces of each ingredient. Repeat with seven remaining skewers. Discard marinade that contained chicken.
5. Grill skewers on covered grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
6. Serve immediately.
