Kabobs have magical powers for kids. The exact same food served on a plate may hold no appeal to them. But put it on a stick and voila! Suddenly, it becomes tasty. You will find that such is the case when you make these chicken kabobs. The red pepper and spring onion add beautiful color to these chicken kabobs and help get those veggies in, too.
Grab the kids and make this a family food-making event. After the meat and vegetables have been marinated in the refrigerator, let your kids help put them on the skewers.
Serve these chicken shish kabobs with rice and strawberry spinach salad for a refreshing meal indoors or out. Make up some homemade chocolate brownies for dessert to round out the meal. Make it even more exciting by turning this meal into a backyard picnic for the family...let the laughter and fun begin!
1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 small red pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
4 to 5 spring onions, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Combine chicken, red pepper, and onions in a glass bowl.
Whisk together the remaining ingredients—pineapple juice, soy sauce, olive oil, honey, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes.
Pour over chicken and vegetables, turning to coat well. Refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat, or heat a cast iron grill pan over medium-high heat.
Thread skewers with chicken and vegetables (remember to soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes prior to using to prevent burning).
Grill chicken kabobs 10 to 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
- Make it an overall kabob-type meal and skewer up some washed green and red grapes to be placed on everyone's plates. Or have fun letting the kids pick the fruits they want to put on the skewer. Chunks of pineapple, watermelon, canteloupe, or strawberries with the top cut work well, also.
- Add in 1 small green or orange pepper, chopped into 1-inch chunks, for additional color and flavor.
- Wash up some small mushrooms and include them in the mix.
