Looking for something a little different and rather healthy to try for dinner? I think you will love these delicious grilled chicken and pineapple kabobs with Hawaiian rice that I created recently. Let me know if you give them a try.
Pineapple Chicken Kabobs with Hawaiian Rice
4 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 pineapple, cut into bite size pieces (save about ½ cup for rice)
Marinade for chicken:
¼ cup pineapple juice
¼ cup soy sauce (If you are making this GF, be sure to use GF soy sauce)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 -1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Mix all marinade ingredients. Pour over chicken. Marinate for at least 6 hours. Add chicken and pineapple to skewers. Grill until chicken is cooked through.
1 ½ cups uncooked rice
¼ coconut oil
½ cup red pepper, diced
½ cup onion, diced
¼ cup pineapple, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup soy sauce
¼-1/2 cup pineapple juice, I start with a ¼ cup and then add more as it cooks down.
¼ shredded sweetened coconut (optional)
Cook rice. Meanwhile, heat coconut oil and saute red peppers and onions until tender. Add garlic and pineapple and saute for another minute. Add soy sauce and pineapple juice. Add rice and mix well. Add coconut, if desired.
