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.

I have made this twice, once using chicken and the second using stew meat and both were awesome. However the second time(with stew meat) I added 1/4cup of rice wine vinegar for added acidity to help tenderizer the meat and 1/4tsp of sesame oil for extra flavor. I also added 1tsp of corn starch to the reserve marinade and then boiled it to create a thicker sauce for basting. This recipe is a keeper.

THIS IS OUTSTANDING!!!! Getting ready for a trip to Kauai and thought we would get in the spirit. They were moist, tender and the chicken was full of the marinade flavor. I added about 3 Tbsp chili oil to the marinade after boiling it and this gave a good little kick.

OMG! OMG! This is EXCELLENT ... entire family raved about how great these were. Made for tonight dinner. Used chicken breast and skinless deboned chicken thighs, with onions, pineapple, red/green/yellow bell peppers, mushrooms, yellow squash, and tomato . Marinated the chicken for about three hours. Grilled them on the charcoal grill. Served with chicken flavored rice. The marinate DEFINITELY made this dish. Before dinner was over I was hearing about all the different ways the marinate could be used....FROM MY FAMILY. I had a lot of left over veggies and pineapple so I thru them in a skillet with butter and a little oil, salt/pepper, garlic powder and sauteed them Before serving I added some of the marinate. They were adding the leftover veggies/pineapple to the rice. THIS RECIPE IS A KEEPER. I am actually thinking about making up a jar of the marinate and keeping it in the fridge.....lol... I could drink the stuff. It is SO good. I was also amazed at how moist and tender the chicken was. You could almost cut it with your folk. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for posting this fabulous recipe.

Awesome. Best Kabobs ever. I've never made kabobs before but I really wanted them for Mother's day so I decided to try this recipe and I'm so glad I did. I used steak, chicken and shrimp, mushrooms and onions on the kabobs. I marinated the meat over night. Put it in a plastic bag around 8:00 pm Sat evening. Then when I woke up Sunday morning I cut the meat in bite sized pieces and put it back in the marinade. I also soaked the sticks overnight in a mix of water and soy sauce. This helps there be even more flavor cooked in from the inside out. :) Then around 2:30 on Sunday I assembled the kabobs and grilled. Even my husband agreed these were the best kabobs ever. It made about 15 kabobs (I did about 1 1/2 the recipe). Thank you so much for the recipe. It's a keeper!

This chicken was awesome. Easy to make and worth the effort. Will be making this again. Had my neighbors taste it and they also raved about it.

We had a "kabobfest" over the 4th of July weekend. We made many, many different kabobs and this was the favorite of most of us, perhaps second only to the Soy Glazed Salmon Kabobs. The only thing we changed was fresh pineapple. Highly recommend!

This was delicious! Not a fan of mushrooms so I used zucchini as well as Vidalia onion, red pepper and grape tomatoes. I doubled the marinade and discarded the marinade used for the chicken. My husband thought it was great. I'll definitely make this again!
