Chicken on skewers

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


Step 1
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.

Step 2
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.

Step 3
Add chicken to the bowl with the cooled marinade. Stir to coat the chicken. Cover; refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Step 4
Thread chicken pieces onto skewers. Discard remaining marinade.

Step 5
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.
