Polynesian Chicken Kabobs –
What you’ll need:
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger root or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 medium green sweet pepper
- 1 medium red sweet pepper
- 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks or one 8-ounce can pineapple chunks, drained
Optional – Hot cooked rice, green onion fans.
(I opted for the hot cooked rice, it paired really well with the kabobs. I chose Mahatma long grain white rice.)
Prepare the chicken first. Rinse chicken, then pat dry with paper towels. Cut into one inch pieces.
Place chicken in a zip-lock bag and set the bag into a shallow dish.
Marinade – Combine soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic, ginger, and mustard together in a small bowl.
Pour marinade over chicken; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for approximately 2 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade. Cut your green and red peppers into 1 inch pieces.
Using 12 short metal skewers, alternately thread chicken, pineapple, green pepper and red pepper. Repeat until skewer is full.
Grill kabobs on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 14 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
Turn skewers and brush with marinade halfway through grilling.
Alternatively, you can arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan using a covered grill. Test for medium heat above the pan. Place kabobs on grill rack over the drip pan.
Cover and grill for 16 to 18 minutes. Brush occasionally with the marinade up to the last 5 minutes of grilling.
Makes 6 servings.
