A delightful Asian-inspired kebab of chicken and pineapple flavored with a ginger-orange marinade. Recipe is from an old Sunset booklet which I re-discovered in my treasure trove of old cookbooks.

Very easy and delicious recipe! I cut this down for just 1 chicken breast and adjusted the ingredients according to weight. The chicken turned out nice and moist, and I just love grilled pineapple! I also grilled some zucchini and tomatoes to enjoy with this delicious dish. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium size bowl, mix orange zest, juice, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, vinegar, oil, and coriander - reserve 1/4 cup marinade. Stir chicken in remaining marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  2. Lift chicken from marinade and drain briefly (discard marinade). Thread chicken and pineapple chunks on thin metal skewers, alternating 2 chicken chunks and 1 pineapple chunk. Brush reserved marinade over pineapple. Place skewers on a lightly greased grill 4-6 inches above a solid bed of hot coals. Cook, turning and basting with reserved marinade, until chicken is no longer pink in center (6-8 minutes).
