Disclosure: I am participating in the Chicken Farmers of Canada campaign managed by SJ Consulting. I received compensation in exchange for my participation in this campaign. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Chicken kebabs are a common occurrence during the summer months at my house.

Not only are the easy, but they’re colorful and fun. I like to cook up a bunch at once so I have easy lunches throughout the week.

I either eat them off the skewer or toss with some rice or cauliflower to make a healthy chicken bowl.

  • Canadian chicken farmers adhere to a strict mandatory On-Farm Food Safety Program.
  • Chicken raised my Canadian farmers are committed to sustainability through innovation, by preserving the health of the land, providing value to Canada’s economy, making affordable food for Canadians.

How long to marinate the chicken

The longer the better. I’ve made this a few times and I prefer to marinate it overnight.

However, if you’re anything like me. You probably opened up this recipe and you have today (or even 30 minutes).

Marinate the Hawaiian bbq chicken as long as you can. I recommend a minimum of two hours, but 30 minutes will work too (the flavor just won’t be as “deep”).

    These are SO delicious! Even my pineapple hating son in law loves to eat these. We have made them several times now and they’re quick and easy to put together. I prep it ahead of time too – bring home a batch of chicken, cut it up, throw it into freezer containers with marinade. Then when we’re craving some of these kebabs, we just pull out a container from the freezer and we’re ready to go! YUM!
