The marinade is the key to these great kabobs. They only need 1 hour in the refrigerator to marinate.

My family loved it! The chicken was very moist and flavorful. I added a small red potatoe and zucchini to the skewer. It was a complete meal. I definately will make this again. Can't wait.

These are very delicious kebabs with a definite Polynesian flavor that hints of sweet and sour with tones of ginger. I think this recipe would also work well with shrimp or chunks of ham. A real winner! Thanks, Inez!

These kabobs were the hit of my Hawaiian Luau! I made skewers with chicken and skewers with pork. For the chicken, I actually purchased the frozen boneless chicken breasts from Sams Club. For the pork, I bought boneless pork chops trimmed the fat and cubed. For veggies, I also used onion and red pepper. I didn't serve the rice, since it was easier for people to eat standing up without it.
