From Betty Crocker, this island-y recipe sounds wonderful and gets good reviews. Posting here to try later as I couldn't find it already on the site. "This new twist takes the work out of kabobs. Instead of skewering the vegetables and meat and brushing with the glaze, they are combined in a simple packet and grilled."

Not quite the kabobs I expected from the title, but believe me, that didn't detract from either the easy of preparing this recipe or the great taste of the finished product! I did cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us, but other than that . . . Absolutely satisfying! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup recipe tag]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, stir together pineapple preserves, brown sugar, soy sauce and crushed red pepper.
  2. Cut 4 (24x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Divide chicken, bell peppers, pineapple chunks and pineapple preserves mixture among foil sheets. Sprinkle with salt. Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  3. Place packets on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Using tongs, carefully turn packets over, taking care not to puncture foil. Cook 10 to 12 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp-tender.
