Thai-Spiced Chicken Kabobs

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 30 mins Grill 13 mins to 15 mins
Thai-Spiced Chicken Kabobs
  • 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.
