Spicy Pomegranate Pineapple Chicken Skewers

Barbeques are a staple of the summer. There is seriously nothing better than getting together with family and friends in your backyard on a sunny summer day. The kids burn off energy running around playing, the men drink beer by the grill, and you laugh with your girlfriends on the deck. It is simply perfect. That is why I absolutely love these spicy pomegranate pineapple chicken skewers. They are easy to make and are like a delicious summertime explosion in your mouth. Amazing!

I am crazy excited to serve these at a cookout we’re having in July. See, something kind of magical is happening: all of our close friends are finally going to be on the same schedule! 8 kids, 6 moves, and multiple shift changes later and we are all going to have weekends off and none of my girlfriends will be pregnant! (Not that we don’t love babies but let’s be fair, summer and pregnancy aren’t the most fun.) That makes this upcoming BBQ extra special to me. I can’t wait to have all of our families together relaxing and enjoying the sunshine, company, and these delicious skewers! Frankly, putting food on a stick automatically makes it tastier and more fun.

So, let’s get on to making these babies.

Ingredients

** Recipe makes about 15 skewers

Step 1

Soak your wooden skewers in water. This will keep them from burning on the grill.

Step 2

While your skewers are soaking, prepare your food for the skewers. Cube your chicken breasts and it using a whole pineapple, cut it into pieces as well.

Step 3

Remove your skewers from the water. Begin adding your chicken and pineapple to them starting with the chicken. Alternate between placing pieces of chicken and pineapple until you have filled your skewer.

Note:

  • Ours held about 4 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces of pineapple on each skewer.

Step 4

Place finished skewers in a single layer on a large cookie sheet.

Step 5

Pour some Pomegranate Chipotle Sauce over your skewers and use a brush to coat.

Tip:

  • This sauce can be very spicy so you may want to use sparingly if serving to kids.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
