- 1 small fresh pineapple ( 3 to 3-1/2 lb.)
- Nonstick cooking spray or cooking oil
- 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 recipe Thai Brushing Sauce (see recipe below)
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar (optional
- Hot cooked rice (optional)
- Fresh basil leaves (optional)
- Whole fresh red chile peppers (optional)
1. Cut off pineapple ends. Halve pineapple lengthwise; cut each half crosswise into 4 slices. Lightly coat pineapple slices with nonstick cooking spray or brush with oil. Set aside.
2. Thread pineapple pieces onto 4 long skewers,* leaving 1/4 inch space between pieces.
3. Place skewers on the grill rack directly over medium heat; grill for 7 minutes. Turn skewers; brush with 1/4 cup of the Thai Brushing Sauce. Discard any remaining brushing sauce. Arrange pineapple slices on grill rack directly over medium heat. Grill chicken and pineapple for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and pineapple is heated through, turning once.
4. In a small bowl, combine remaining Thai Brushing Sauce, melted butter, and, if desired, brown sugar; serve with chicken and pineapple. If desired, serve with rice; garnish with basil and chile peppers. Makes 4 servings.
- Up to 24 hours ahead, prepare Thai Brushing Sauce, cut pineapple into slices, and thread chicken onto skewers. Cover and store separately in refrigerator.
