Tender strips of seasoned chicken and juicy pineapple chunks, great on the barbeque!
- 1 1⁄4 lbs chicken cutlets (approx 4 or 625g)
- 1 fresh pineapple, prepared and cut into 24 cubes or 24 canned pineapple chunks
- 1 teaspoon orange rind, grated
- 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons mild curry paste
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- In a bowl whisk together all the marinade ingredients above; set aside.
- Between plastic wrap, pound chicken to 1/4 inch thickness; cut cross-wise into 1 inch wide strips.
- Add chicken to marinade, toss well; cover bowl and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
- To assemble skewers: weave chicken onto 24- 4 inch skewers (if using wooden skewers remember to soak them in water first!) put a pineapple chunk on each end of the skewer.
- (To make ahead: you can cover and refrigerate them for up to 8 hours at this point).
- To cook: place skewers on greased grill over medium-high heat or under the broiler in the oven and cook, turning once, for approximately 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside.
