Jerk Chicken Kabobs

We're not much for grilling, but as the weather warms, I love the chance to cook without actually heating up my kitchen. I also have a yummy pork kabob recipe, but I think my family likes this one even better.

Jerk Chicken Kabobs

Italian Seasoning Mix (plus oil and vinegar)
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. cinnamon
5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
2 cans pineapple chunks

Mix Italian dressing packet according to directions. Add to the dressing: brown sugar, soy sauce and cinnamon. Mix well. Pour over the cubed chicken (I use a big Tupperware bowl so I can shake it every so often) and marinate 4-5 hours or overnight. Right before grilling, slide onto skewers with a piece of pineapple between each piece of chicken. Grill until chicken is done.

I do make those orange and thyme one you shared last year...they are a hit even with the kids. I LOVE to grill...well prepare the food that is to be grilled. So with Steve gone maybe I will try these in the oven. For some reason I am afraid of the grill...and in this house our grill is hooked up to the gas line from the house and I really don't want to blow it up.

Today the kids and I enjoyed making daily goal tags...they really got into it. Thank you for always sharing you wonderful ideas!

This recipe makes me sad I don't have a grill (maybe I can put one on the fire escape?).
