Pineapple Chicken Kabobs

Say aloha to pineapple chicken kabobs!

I love having BBQs with friends and family in the summertime. The summers here in Montreal are quite short if you ask me, so I love to soak up every moment of hot weather. Give me kabobs, a glass of iced rosé and good company, and it’s a perfect summer evening.

These pineapple chicken kabobs are a tropical summer dish to serve at a BBQ! Feel free to skewer on more vegetables to make these kabobs even more colourful. I love the flavour combination between the sweetness of the pineapple with the strong red onions.

Serve this tropical kabob with a refreshing garden salad and/or some rice. Find some of my favorite summer side dishes here.

Pineapple Chicken Kabobs


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 red onion, sliced thick

  • 1-2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • pepper to taste
  1. Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Chop pineapple and red onion into chunks.

  3. Skewer chicken, pineapple chunks and red onion onto skewers. Season with salt and pepper. If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water for 5 minutes beforehand.
  4. Grill on the barbecue or roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked. Enjoy!
