Hawaiian Chicken Skewers are prepared by marinating chicken thighs in a mixture of pineapple juice, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and dry mustard. Grilled to perfection, with chunks of fresh pineapple, these chicken skewers are absolutely phenomenal!
10wholeboneless, skinless chicken thighs,roughly cut into 1 inch pieces
2cupsfresh pineapple,cut into 1 inch chunks
For the Marinade:
1/4cuplow sodium soy sauce
1/3cupbrown sugar,lightly packed
1tablespoon dry mustard
1/2teaspoonground black pepper
non-stick cooking spray
In a bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients.
Pour the marinade over the chicken and stir well so that all of the chicken is coated with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, if using wooden skewers and an outdoor flame grill, soak your skewers in water until ready to use.
Once the chicken has marinated long enough, remove it from fridge. Pierce the chicken onto the skewers, adding a piece of pineapple at random throughout the length of the skewer. Don’t pack the chicken too tightly, but the pieces should touch each other.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Place the skewers onto the grill and cook until browned. Flip and cook the other side. Internal temperature of the chicken should be 165 degrees.
Remove from grill. Plate and garnish. Serve immediately.
