This finger food recipe is so simple to make, the whole family can join in without worrying about any messes. Perfect for your next backyard barbecue, this recipe only requires some chicken, a few veggies, and a whole lot of seasoning. The key ingredient is the pineapple juice that brings an island flair.

  • Place cut chicken into an airtight container. Reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce and pour the remainder over the chicken. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove chicken from refrigerator and being skewering the kebobs. Place one piece of chicken onto the kebab, leave about 1/2 inch of skewer showing at the end.
