  • Mix first 7 ingredients until well blended; pour over chicken in large bowl. Stir to evenly coat chicken. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate.
  • Heat grill to medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Thread chicken onto 12 skewers alternately with bell peppers and pineapple.
  • Grill 15 min. or until chicken is done, turning frequently.

How to Prevent the Chicken from Sticking to the Grill

Spray the unheated grate of the grill, away from the fire, with cooking spray before using to prevent sticking. Or, brush the grill grate with oil.

Substitute

Substitute 1 can (20 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained, for the fresh pineapple chunks and/or a green pepper for the red bell pepper.

    Wow! Made exactly as directed. No adding things. No omitting things. No substituting things. Makes me crazy when people change the recipe so much that it might as well be a different recipe they're rating. Do yourself a favor. Don't change a thing. Absolutely delicious. Young and old loved it. Our new, favorite go-to chicken recipe.
