Take-out Tuesday, Pineapple Teriyaki BBQ Chicken & Bacon Kebabs

Summer is here!

There was a constant boat parade in front of our house the past 3 days

People celebrating and flags flying!

We kicked off the weekend with Pineapple Teriyaki BBQ Chicken and Bacon Kebabs

This recipe is a crowd pleaser and very family friendly

Marinate the chicken in a combo of pineapple juice, soy sauce, dry onion soup mix, and sesame oil

Send the kids off in the boat and enjoy some porch time

They love to get out in the crazy boat traffic, I prefer boating on quieter days…but I do enjoy watching it from the porch, not to mention getting a little peace and quiet!

Load the kebab skewers with alternating chicken, pineapple and bacon pieces

Sprinkle with salt & pepper or your favorite grill seasoning

Uh oh, they’re back…

HHjr is the grillmaster around here

He said he cooked these over a medium high heat for about 20 minutes

Everyone’s grill is different

and time will vary due to size of chicken pieces

so this is just a guideline

During the last 5 minutes, baste with your favorite BBQ sauce

We all lapped these up

Even HHjr kept saying how good these kebabs are

We will be making these all summer

Note: if you’re lucky enough to have some leftovers,

they would make a killer pizza topping, wrap filling or salad topping!


mouthwatering combination of skewered chicken, bacon and pineapple!
