Bacon, Pineapple, Chicken Kabobs

Pineapple, chicken and veggies interwoven with strips of smoky bacon and slathered with a sweet and sticky Hawaiian sauce. These skewers are simply SINFUL!

Ingredients

2
large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)
1
large pineapple, cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks
2
large red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
1
large onion, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
12
strips of thick cut bacon

FOR THE HAWAIIAN SAUCE:

1 1/2
cups pineapple juice
1 1/2
tablespoons cornstarch
1/2
cup brown sugar
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1/2
teaspoon salt
6
long skewers

Directions

  • 1 To make the Hawaiian sauce: Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan and stir until the cornstarch is dissolved. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 2 minutes. Set-aside until ready to use.
  • 2 Thread the skewers. Weave the bacon around each piece of chicken and pineapple, stick the bell pepper and onion together and weave the bacon around both of those. You'll need two strips of bacon per skewer if using 4 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces each of pineapple, bell pepper and onion. Brush some olive or vegetable oil evenly over each kabob.
  • 3 Preheat the grill to medium high. Grill the kabobs for 10-15, turning a couple of times, until done.
  • 4 Slather with hot Hawaiian sauce and serve immediately.

Step By Step  

Get your grill ready – these kabobs are sweet, smoky, savory and just waiting to be devoured!

As prepared by Daring Gourmet,

Chicken, veggies, and pineapple get the bacon treatment with thick slabs woven throughout for the ultimate kabob. 

Picture this: Juicy chunks of char-grilled pineapple and chicken interwoven with smoky strips of bacon.

Okay, just skip the rhetoric and pass the kabob.

It's not just that the bacon itself tastes divine. Woven around the other ingredients on the skewer, it naturally bastes the pineapple, chicken and veggies during the grilling process so that each morsel is infused with bacon goodness.

Where's that kabob?

That's right, it's basted with bacon drippings while it's cooking on the grill. Juicy, savory, smoky pineapple, chicken and veggies grilled to perfection and then are then drenched in a sweet and sticky Hawaiian sauce.

HEY! I said where's that kabob?!
