A perfect snack, or crowd-pleasing appetizer, these mai tai chicken skewers are three bites of pure deliciousness.

Ingredients

10
bamboo skewers (6 inch)
2
large boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 10 oz)
7
green onions
1/3
cup light corn syrup
1
tablespoon dark rum
1
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2
teaspoon grated lime peel
1
tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2
teaspoon almond extract
10
chunks (1 1/2 inch) fresh pineapple (about 1 1/2 cups)
10
maraschino cherries with stems
1/3
cup flaked coconut, toasted

Directions

  • 1 Soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes to prevent burning. Spray grill rack with cooking spray. Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 2 Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise to make 10 (about 1-inch) pieces. Cut onions into 20 (about 2-inch) pieces. In small bowl, mix corn syrup, rum, lemon juice, lime peel, lime juice and almond extract. Reserve 3 tablespoons.
  • 3 On each skewer, alternately thread 2 chicken pieces, 2 onion pieces and 1 pineapple chunk. Brush kabobs with about half of the remaining sauce.
  • 4 Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 7 to 10 minutes, turning and brushing with remaining sauce after 5 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Place kabobs on serving platter. Thread end of each skewer with cherry. Spoon reserved 3 tablespoons sauce evenly over kabobs; sprinkle with coconut.
Tips  

*To toast coconut, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
