Summer is for grilling and fresh fruit, so why don’t you combine the two?
- 1 1/2 lbs Chicken Breast
- 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup Onion, minced
- 3 cloves Garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon Ginger
- 1 cup Ketchup
- 1/4 cup Soy Sauce, low sodium
- 1/4 cup Honey
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Lemon, juiced
- 1 Pineapple
1.) Before you start cooking, you need to soak the skewers in water for at least 20
minutes. This makes sure that they don’t catch fire on the grill.
2.) Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces.
3.) In a small saucepan, sauté the onion in the olive oil for 7 minutes or until translucent.
4.) Add in the garlic and ginger, and continue to sauté for a minute.
5.) To finish up the sauce, in the pan add the ketchup, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Let this simmer on a medium low setting for 10 minutes.
6.) Once this cools down, add half of the sauce into a large ziplock bag with the chicken to marinate for five hours.
7.) After this time is up, chop up the pineapple into 1-inch pieces. You want them about the same size of the chicken.
8.) Remove the chicken from the bag, and alternate threading the chicken and pineapple on the skewers.
9.) On a preheated grill, let the skewers grill for 5 minutes. After this, baste them with the extra sauce every 3 minutes.
10.) After 18 minutes of this, check if the chicken is done by cutting into it.
