BBQ Chicken Pineapple Skewers

For dinner on our first gluten free day, I thought I would whip up something my husband could not argue with….BBQ!

I picked up some peppers, onions and chicken at the farmers market and pineapple was on sale so as I looked in my fridge, it was a no brainer!

This is a super easy recipe that is perfect for that Summer BBQ or a quick weeknight dinner. Marinade the chicken in the ingredients below and let sit for 4 hours or so in the fridge. I also soak my wooden skewers in water while I marinade the chicken and veggies so they don’t blacken too much. I do like to use the wooden ones as I find they add a nice smokey taste, which I love. I pick my skewers up on Amazon because they are the cheapest and the quality it great. I bought them at the Dollar Store once (and only once) and they burst into flames immediately, even after soaking.

If you would like to be environmentally responsible, which I always encourage, check out the  stainless steel skewers. Buy once and use over and over!

Put on skewers with pineapple and any other veggies you have in hand and slap them on the grill for 15-20 minutes. Healthy, delicious and of course gluten free!
