Hey there friends! I just want to share with ya'll this amazing recipe. So last Saturday I was planning to cook chicken but I ran out of ideas on how should I cook it. Then I bumped into this recipe online and decided to give it a try, I'm still amazed on how delicious it turned out :)



  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 1/4 cup canned pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or brown sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cold water whisked
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3-4 bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (colors of your choice)
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups pineapple chunks
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil (or more sesame oil)
  • oil or grill cooking spray for grill grates


  1. Create marinade* in a small sauce pan over medium heat by whisking together soy sauce, pineapple juice, honey, sesame oil, garlic powder, ground ginger, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer. Separately, whisk together cold water and corn starch until combined. Slowly stream cornstarch mixture into marinade. Whisk all together. Return to a simmer; allow to simmer, whisking occasionally, for 3-4 minutes until marinade thickens. Remove from heat. Set aside.
  2. Place diced chicken in a large plastic zip-top bag or bowl. Add half of marinade; toss to coat chicken. Seal/cover chicken; refrigerate at least 1 hour up to 4 hours.
  3. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat.**
  5. Alternately thread chicken, peppers, onion and pineapple onto skewers. Brush olive oil on vegetables.
  6. Oil grill grate. Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Grill, turning every 4-5 minutes and basting with remaining marinade until chicken is done; about 15-20 minutes.
