This is a great recipe for a hot summer day, and it looks totally exotic so your guests will be amazed. You may want to spice the chicken up a bit more to add to the contrast between the meat and the fruit. Try adding some crushed chilies to your chicken marinade, or maybe some garam masala! ENJOY

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Soak wooden skewers, if you're using them.

  • Combine the melted butter, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg in a small bowl.

  • Using metal or soaked wooden skewers, arrange chicken, pineapple chunks, and strawberries on each stick (approximately 4 to 6 pieces of each item per skewer). Brush kabobs with butter mixture. Place the kabobs on the hot grill. Cook, turning on all sides, until chicken is cooked through and strawberries are sizzling, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

Pretty good but I had trouble keeping the strawberries on the skewers. And instead of the lemon marinade I used honey lime and soy sauce...really good. My husband and I liked these a lot and served them with rice pilaf and a nice green salad. I agree that a roasted strawberry is a real treat too!:) Read More

For a little bit of a contrast add a vidalia onion or a red onion. It really compliments the fruits and chicken making the kabobs not too sweet. Read More

This was really good but we added a few things to make it more interesting. I added onions just to cut the over sweetness of the whole dish and also parboiled some sweet potatoes which I diced large and added to the kabobs. They were REALLY good with the rest of the ingredients. My husband and children gave this one a thumbs up and we are serving it to some guests this weekend for a BBQ. Read More

These are incredible Kabobs! They are really pretty and everyone loved them...I highly recommend them! Don't make more than you can eat in one day because they don't make good leftovers but there probably won't be any left anyway! REALLY REALLY GOOD! (I marinated the chicken overnite...really good flavor!) Read More

The pineapple was SO good but the strawberries didn't have much flavor. I think next time I'll just leave them out. The chicken was awesome with the nutmeg. Read More

I used turkey instead of chicken and it was good too. My husband said the marinade was a little too "lemon-y" for his taste but I liked it. The real surprise was the strawberries! If you've never had a roasted strawberry then you're in for a treat. They taste really nice. We lost a few strawberries when they fell off the kabobs and into the fire but on the whole most of them made it. It does look exotic and is something different for guests. A keeper! Read More
