Cooking at Camp

Pineapple Chicken Kabobs
Pineapple Chicken KabobsIngredients

  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger, note: Trader Joe’s carries ginger paste that’s perfect for this.
  •  lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt

To build the skewers

  1. ½ lb chicken, boneless, skinless thighs work best, cut into 1-inch pieces
  2. 1 medium red onion, sliced into 1-inch pieces.
  3. Pineapple wedges, cut into 1-inch cubes (see notes)


  1. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl or Ziplock bag.
  2. Add the chicken to the marinade and stir to coat. Cover or seal the container, and let marinate for at least an hour, or up to 24 hours. If you’re going to marinate for longer than an hour, place it back into your cooler.
  3. In the meantime, fire up your grill or get your campfire going.
  4. Build the kabobs by threading the chicken and vegetables onto your skewers. Brush with a bit of oil.
  5. Grill the kabobs over medium-high to high heat, turning occasionally so they cook evenly until the chicken is cooked through – about 10 minutes total.
  6. Remove from the grill and enjoy!
