Tropical Chicken Kabobs. Pair with Coconut Rice for An Island Experience.

Grilled Chicken Kabobs

These tropical chicken kabobs are beyond delicious. We just moved into our new home and built an outdoor kitchen. This was the very first meal we prepared in our new outdoor area! We planted palm trees and embraced the Florida lifestyle. You’ll see this area featured in upcoming videos.

It takes about 15 minutes to cut up the chicken. You can also ask your butcher to cut up the chicken in 1.5 inch squares (I always forget to do that!). Next, cut up the onion, peppers, and pineapple in big chunks that are about 1-2 inches in size.

To continue the island theme, we made the grilled chicken kabobs with some delicious coconut rice. It was to die for! Get the Coconut Rice Recipe here.
