Pineapple Chicken Skewers Recipe: Live With Kelly

Try Ashanti's Pineapple Chicken Skewers Recipe from Grilling with the Stars this weekend!

Ingredients for Rub

  • 1 tbsp each Old Bay & Lemon Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp each Garlic Salt & Garlic Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Sazon for Chicken
  • 1/4 cup White Vinegar

Ingredients for Skewers

  • 2 lbs Boneless Chicken Breast
  • 2 Red Onions
  • 2 Yellow Onions
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 8 large Pineapple Chunks
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Lime


  1. Make the rub/marinade by mixing all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Stir the marinade into a bowl that has the chicken pieces, peppers, onions and pineapple. Mix thoroughly and cover the bowl. Let it marinade in the fridge overnight.
  3. The next day, dip your skewers in water and then start building your kebabs. Ashanti likes to start with a vegetable and then alternate between chicken and the fruits/veggies.
  4. Place skewers on the grill and cook 10-12 minutes, turning over once.
  5. When cooked thoroughly, squeeze some lemon and lime on top of the skewers, then enjoy!

About the author

After my childhood dream of achieving Olympic figure skating gold fell through, I moved on to Plan B: become a writer.
