Hawaiian Chicken Skewers
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb./500g skinless chicken thighs or breasts (the thighs will stay more moist)
  • ½ cup/120ml soy sauce
  • ½ cup/120ml coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 (1 in./2.5cm) chunk of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 (7oz./200g) can pineapple chunks, drained (preserve ½cup/120ml juice)
  • ½ bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • ½ purple onion, cut into chunks
  1. Trim the chicken of any visible fat and cut into chunks about 1 in/2.5 cm big.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients, except for pineapple chunks, bell pepper and onion in a large bowl.
  3. Add the chicken chunks and allow to marinate for at least 4 hours, but best would be overnight.
  4. An hour before grilling, soak the wooden skewers in water to assure they won't catch on fire.
  5. Alternate the chicken chunks, pineapple, bell pepper and onion on each skewer.
  6. Grill the skewers at medium-low heat so that the marinade does not burn. Turn once after 5-7 minutes.
