Equipment

  • wooden skewers

Ingredients

  • lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
  • cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp chili paste
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger grated
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup pineapple diced to 1 inch cubes

Toppings

  • green onion diced
  • cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • In a small mixing bowl combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, chili paste, minced garlic, grated ginger, salt, honey, chopped cilantro, and sesame oil. Stir to combine.
  • Add the chopped Chicken Breasts into a large re-sealable plastic bag, pour all but 1/4 cup of the sauce into the bag. Reserve the remaining sauce to make a dipping sauce later, store covered in fridge until needed. Place the plastic bag into the fridge to allow the chicken to marinade for at least 2 hours.
  • 30 minutes prior to grilling soak about 10-15 6 inch wooden skewers in water (this will prevent them from burning).
  • Add the reserved sauce (not the sauce from the chicken!) to a small saucepan and stir in the cornstarch. Bring to a simmer stirring occasionally. Once sauce is thickened remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  • Preheat grill to 350-450℉.
  • Remove the chicken from the fridge, place chicken and pineapple chunks onto the soaked wooden skewers.
  • Grill the skewers for about 10 minutes turning every few minutes to ensure all sides are cooked. Cook until chicken reaches internal temperature of 165℉.
  • Remove from the grill and serve with sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
