It has apricot jam and soy sauce? It works! Juicy cubes of fresh pineapple would be a delightful addition to these flavorful skewers.

It was too cold to grill outside - just used our bake oven. I skewered red and green peppers, onions, and pineapple along with the chicken. This is a very good recipe, and I think the apricot jam is what made it so good. I have tried other similar marinades. They're good but don't compare to this one for flavor. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Since it was 30F. outside, I decided rather than skewer them and broil, I would saute' them wok style. The sauce is really wonderful, but geared more towards a dipping sauce. It also could have used more apricot jam as it was hardly noticable, and just a little heat, such as crushed red pepper flakes. And yes, pineapple would be wonderful with this sauce. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
