Grilled Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs

Easy to make Grilled Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs! Chicken marinated in a pineapple lime marinade then skewered with pineapple, seasoned with spices and grilled to delicious perfection!

Since I live in an apartment complex, I can’t have a grill on my balcony.

Booooo.

So when I found out I can make chicken skewers INDOORS on my grill pan, I was EXCITED.

Who needs a grill, am I right!?

Me. I do. I would love one.

Someday I’ll have one. Until then, the grill pan saves the day!

These Grilled Spicy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs came out WAY better than expected. When I first got my grill pan years ago, I was so discouraged with it, I literally locked it up in a cabinet and never used it again.

DRAMAAA.

I’m glad I got over that now and can use it to make amazingly delicious things like these chicken kabobs. I won’t lie, the first time I made them, the chicken was cooked on the outside and raw inside. Grrrrr. WHAT DID I DO WRONG?!

Oh, the pieces were too big. Oops. Learn from me, make sure you cut 1-inch pieces.

Also, how cute is this pineapple glass!??!!?! So in love.

These kabobs are perfect for a weeknight dinner or pool party. Super easy to make at any time of year, really.

The chicken ends up super juicy from the pineapple lime marinade and has a delicious kick, thanks to the spices. When combined with the pineapple, uff…they are just BOMB. Basically, a pineapple flavor explosion in all the best ways.

I hope you make these and LOVE them!
