Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Thread chicken alternately with pineapple and peppers onto 8 long wooden skewers, using 2 skewers placed side-by-side for each kabob.
  • Mix barbecue sauce and juice concentrate; brush half evenly onto kabobs.
  • Grill 8 to 10 min. or until chicken is done, turning and brushing occasionally with remaining sauce.

Note

Soak wooden skewers in water 30 min. before using. Wrap ends with foil before grilling to prevent them from burning. If using metal skewers, use just 1 metal skewer when assembling each kabob.

Variation

Prepare as directed, substituting 1 lb. skinless salmon fillets, cut into 1-inch chunks, for the chicken. Or, substitute 1 lb. uncooked peeled and deveined extra-large shrimp for the chicken, reducing the grilling time to 4 to 6 min. or until shrimp turn pink.

Substitute

Substitute 1 drained can (20 oz.) pineapple chunks in juice for the fresh pineapple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a great summer meal! This was a great summer meal! I used a can of pineapple chunks so I took the pineapple juice from the can and mixed it with the remainder of the frozen OJ (and the three cans of water) to make a great juice drink along with the meal. (You could even add alcohol for an adult beverage). I made this along with the easy roasted tomatoes at the same time and some extra kebabs of summer and zucchini squash. DELICIOUS! (+easy!)

We've been eating a lot of chicken lately, so I made this recipe with shrimp and some very lean pork loin. We sprinkled some jerk seasoning on the meat before brushing on the sauce (my Husband likes spicy food!). The combination of the grilled pineapple and peppers with the shrimp and pork was just delicious! This would be great with any combo of lean meats! Good job Kraft Kitchens!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love all the recipes on this website, but this one did not do it for me. I love all the recipes on this website, but this one did not do it for me. This really lacked flavor and the chicken turned out fairly dry. I thought marinating the vegetables and chicken before hand would make it juicier, but instead it just made the recipe extremely messy. I love skewer recipes, but I'm convinced this one needs more flavor and I need more practice.

I followed the recipe as written, except for marinating the chicken in the sauce for about 30 minutes. I grilled the kabobs 5 minutes on each side on the cooler half of the grill. The veggies were crisp tender and the chicken was perfect. I will definatley make this again!

I also added some onion's to our kabobs. I forgot to get orange juice concentrate, so I used regular orange juice instead and it still tasted great! I took a tip from another member and marinated the chicken in the sauce for about half an hour. Wonderful!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not that this necessarily tasted bad, it just wasn't what I anticipated. It's not that this necessarily tasted bad, it just wasn't what I anticipated. It pretty much tasted like orange juice on chicken, honestly. I think the ratio of the concentrate is too high, personally. I like the idea of adding the juice, but I would probably have to change this recipe a lot to get it to "sweet" bbq and not just "OJ" bbq haha :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are wonderful ! These are wonderful ! I used canned pineapple instead of fresh and rather than the frozen orange juice I used juice from the canned pineapple ! It gave the chicken a great flavor and a tropical theme. I've made it twice , once as a kabob and once as more of a stir fry serving it over rice. I even added fresh whole mushrooms as an added twist.
