Pineapple Chicken Kebabs with Bacon
Grilled Chicken Skewers with Bacon-Wrapped PineappleGrill up something delicious and different this week! These Pineapple Chicken Kebabs with Bacon are guaranteed to be a hit. Pieces of chicken are marinated in GOYA® Mojo Piña, a sweet-and-savory blend of pineapple juice, honey and soy sauce, giving the chicken incredible flavor. Then, pineapple chunks are wrapped in bacon and threaded on skewers with the marinated chicken before being grilled to crispy, smoky perfection. These new pineapple-bacon-chicken kebabs are a must-try this summer!
Prep time: 5 min.
Total time: 30 min., plus marinating time
1½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken pieces (like breast and/or thigh), cut into ¾” cubes
1 bottle (24.5 oz.) GOYA® Mojo Piña
16 slices bacon
32 pineapple chunks from 1can (20 oz.) GOAY® Pineapple Chunks, drained
|1.||Add chicken to gallon-size zip-top bag; add Mojo Piña and seal bag. Massage to coat chicken in marinade; transfer to refrigerator. Marinate at least 2 hours, or until ready to cook. Drain chicken and discard marinade.|
|2.||Cut bacon in half horizontally. Roll bacon around pineapple chunks until wrapped. On pre-soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread marinated chicken pieces and bacon-wrapped pineapple chunks, starting and ending with chicken pieces to make about 8 skewers.|

Guarantee crisp grilled bacon
The Bacon-wrapped pineapples in these Pineapple Chicken Kebabs with Bacon are a delicious surprise of sweet-and-savory flavor! To ensure the bacon gets crackling-crisp all around as you grill, leave some space between the chicken and the pineapple-bacon pieces so they are not touching. This will help the fire from the grill to cook every nook and cranny of the bacon so you can count on the crispest results.
