Yummy summertime BBQ. You can use any meat to your liking. The pineapple makes it sweet and tender. Add your favorite rice dish to complete this meal, or add a salad and garlic bread. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Gently stir the pineapple chunks in juice, Italian-style salad dressing, chicken, shrimp, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, sweet onion, mushrooms, and garlic together in a large bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap; allow to marinate in refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Drain the mixture in a colander over a bowl to catch the liquid; shake to remove excess liquid. Alternately thread the chicken, red bell pepper, onion, green bell pepper, onion, pineapple, mushroom, and shrimp onto a skewer until each skewer is full; repeat until all ingredients are used.

  • Pour the strained marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes; set aside.

  • Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning frequently, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 15 minutes. Baste skewers generously with the reserved marinade as they cook.

I like using the pineapple juice and Italian salad dressing as a marinade. I divided the marinate and marinated the vegetables in one zip lock bag the chicken in another and the shrimp in a third bag. The chicken and the vegetables are fine to marinate for 8 hours or overnight but vinegar in the dressing will start to cook the shrimp. I only marinate shrimp for about 30 minutes max. Also when skewering I didn't put shrimp and chicken on the same skewer - shrimp cooks so much faster than chicken and it would be impossible to cook both properly on the same skewer. I tossed the marinade from the chicken the shrimp and used the marinade from the vegetables to baste the skewers with. One less pan to wash. Toss the bags and clean up is easy. Thanks for a bright and colorful recipe. Read More

This was delishious! I didn't have canned pineapple. So I didn't put the pineapple and pineapple juice in the marinating bag. I used fresh pineapple and put it on the kabobs with the other food at the end before grilling. instead of throwing it in the marinating bag. Yummy! Read More
