When I came across this adorable video of Candace, I couldn't help but share it with you. She's cute as always, but has come a long way in improving the way she approaches her health.
Then I called upon our friend Janelle, from Comfy in the Kitchen, with the question, "Do you have a recipe for chicken done right?" And of course--she did!
Janelle is what I consider the "Rachel Ray" of online cooking, and what's even better is that cooking is her ministry as well as her passion!
Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs
This is one of my favorite chicken recipes EVER! I make this often in the Summer for guests. These kabobs taste amazing and look beautiful. The pineapple juice in the marinade makes the chicken so juicy...Mmmm! Enjoy!
|Marinade: soy sauce, pineapple juice, vegetable oil, brown sugar, garlic powder (I used garlic, garlic), ginger, dry mustard.|
|For the pineapple juice, I simply use the juice from a can of pineapple. But, for the pineapple in the kabobs- I use fresh pineapple. Call me crazy..but I can taste a big difference in canned vs. fresh pineapple!|
|Grate your ginger. You can find ginger root at your grocery store. It is typically by the fresh lettuce. Peel the skin off and simply grate it with a zester or your cheese grater. No biggie here.|
This is what it will look like. DO NOT omit this if all possible-it really adds a kick to the marinade!
Put all those ingredients into a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins. Take off of burner and let cool in the saucepan.
Cut up raw chicken (get rid of fat)
Place your cut chicken in a 9x13 pan and pour marinade over top
Cover and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours or overnight.
|Prep your veggies. I have fresh pineapple, red peppers, green peppers, cherry tomatoes, and onions.|
|When you are ready to "kabob" water your skewers so they don't catch on fire on the grille.|
|And away we go! After I finish "kabobing" I sprinkle them with seasoned salt and freshly ground pepper. (I use Tastefully Simple Seasoned Salt-it is so good).|
