BBQ CHICKEN BACON PINEAPPLE KABOBS

Tender chicken paired with tangy pineapple and smoky bacon- all slathered with your favorite BBQ sauce. This is one of my favorite BBQ chicken meals! BBQ Chicken Bacon Pineapple Kabobs- Butter With A Side of Bread

The kids are out of school in a matter of weeks and we have two subsequent days this week where it will be at least 80 degrees. You know what that means, right?! Summer is almost here! It’s a fun time of year and I always find myself craving those flavorful summer meals. I love everything about these chicken kabobs- the tangy pineapple paired with the smoky bacon and tender chicken. Slather it with your favorite BBQ sauce and dinner is served!

BBQ Chicken Bacon Pineapple Kabobs

  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2″ – 2″ chunks, salted lightly
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 lb bacon, cut into 1″- 1 1/2″ segments
  • fresh pineapple cut into 2″ chunks

Combine chicken pieces with 1 cup of the BBQ sauce and marinate for 2-3 hours. (This step can be omitted if you’re pressed for time!)

Microwave bacon for 1 minute 30 seconds and let cool slightly.

Using skewers previously soaked in water for at least 1 hour, thread chicken, bacon pieces and pineapple in a pattern. The larger pieces of pineapple are easier to skewer. Fold thin bacon pieces over in half and arrange next to the chicken.

Grill kabobs until chicken reaches 160- 165 degrees F.

Enjoy!

  1. These skewers were so good and easy! I used center cut bacon and threaded it between the chicken and pineapple chunks like a ribbon. You could use teriyaki on this as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

      • Hi,

        I don’t have a grill. Can these be baked as well? If so, what would you for temp and cooking time?

        Thanks so much!!

        • I’d bake these at 400 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes. Check with your meat thermometer- when chicken reaches 165 degrees, it’s done!
