Pineapple Chicken Kabobs ~ Quick and Easy Marinated Kabobs that are the Perfect Combination of Sweet and Tangy!
Before this summer I had never turned our grill on. It was left to the hubs to do that “manly” thing and grill whenever he wanted to and I loved that he was in charge of the main dish even though I still had to prep it and get the side dishes ready. It gave me a bit of a break.
Turns out this really didn’t work because I quickly learned I was not getting much grilled food in the summer and I totally adore it. So I finally broke down and figured out how to use the darn thing. I know, I know it’s really not that hard considering we have a gas grill! I still don’t use it as much as I should but I’ve started to grow accustomed to it and I figure I’ll use it more and more as I find new recipes I love for it!
One thing I quickly learned is that just like in an oven things stick. It killed me to see my pretty, delicious meat turn to a mess as soon as I tried to rotate it. Often times have of my entree was left on the grill to burn off. I was about in tears. All my hard work down the drain!
I soon learned the Pam Cooking Spray had a great PAM® Grilling option. I should have known I could trust the folks over at PAM to save the day! I trust them 100% when I’m baking and using my oven there was no doubt in my mind that they were going to assist me on my new endeavor with the grilling!
PAM® Grilling is specially formulated for higher temperatures making it the secret to grilling success! Plus it makes cleaning up your grill a snap. No more stuck on food and scrubbing the grill grates.
These amazing Pineapple Chicken Kabobs are loaded with chicken, onions and pineapple. The chicken is marinated in a tangy marinade that will have you craving more! Can we talk about pineapple on the grill? WOW. Have you ever had it? It’s has changed my life.
I’m a pineapple lover in the first place but grilling it takes it to a whole new level. It’s so sweet and perfect. I was happy to takes the hub’s pineapple that he didn’t want off his hands. Who doesn’t like pineapple? He’s weird, but his loss is my gain in this instance!
In fact I loved the pineapple on the grill so much that I had to text my pineapple loving coworker immediately and tell her to try it if she hadn’t. She hadn’t so I’m waiting for her report on how amazing it is! We always have to order pineapple on our pizza when we go out for pizza. Her hubs isn’t a fan either so that’s the only time we get it!
She mentioned that peaches are amazing on the grill to and now I can’t wait to try those. I bet they are perfectly sweet and amazing too!
Leaving up to 99% less residue, PAM is your ally in the kitchen and allows you to save time during prep and clean up.
