I wanted to share a delicious recipe with you using chicken & 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice.

With my 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice cans in hand, I decided to make delicious Island Chicken Skewers. My daughter is a huge fan of chicken skewers so I knew this would be the perfect recipe. It was easy too!
For this recipe, you will need:
1 cup 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice
2 tbsp brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 clove garlic, smashed
3 green onions, cut into 1/2-in. pieces
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenders, cut into
16 wooden skewers soaked in water
Combine pineapple juice, brown sugar, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic and green onions in a small saucepan and bring to boil for 5 minutes. Carefully pour out 3/4 cup of the mixture into a bowl to use for marinating the chicken. Allow the marinade to cool.
Meanwhile, return saucepan to the stove and boil remaining pineapple mixture until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Reserve to use as a dipping sauce.
Add chicken to the bowl with the cooled marinade. Stir to coat the chicken. Cover; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Thread chicken pieces onto skewers. Discard remaining marinade.
Heat grill to medium heat and oil it with cooking spray. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes on each side. Serve with reserved dipping sauce.
