Yields: 4 servings (2 skewers each)

Portion Fix Containers:  (per serving): ½ Green, ½ Purple, 1 Red,  ½ tsp.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cut into 16 1-inch pieces
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. minced or ground ginger
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 1 (8-oz.) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 16 1-inch chunks
  • ½ large red onion, cut into 16 1-inch chunks
  • 8 bamboo or metal skewers

Directions:

  1. Soak Bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
  2. Place chicken in resealable plastic bag (or container); add soy sauce, oil, sugar and ginger; seal bag and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes or overnight to marinate.
  3.  Preheat gas, charcoal grill or broiler on high heat.
  4. Place a piece of chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat, so the skewer has two pieces of each ingredient. Repeat with seven remaining skewers. Discard leftover marinade.
  5. Lightly coat grill with cooking spray. Grill skewers in covered grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side (if cooking on an open grill, cook for 6 to 8 minutes each side), or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. (if using your broiler, place skewers on a broiler pan)
  6. Serve immediately.

Meal Prep Note: Make extra because the leftover Pineapple Chicken Skewers can be used for lunch wraps or salads.
