Aloha! Meet my Grilled Pineapple & Chicken Kabobs.

As the lockdown orders ease up, I find myself day dreaming about all the beautiful places I want to travel to and all the local foods I can eat! Until then I will keep making yummy recipes like this one! This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. You can even omit the chicken if you want to keep it vegetarian!

These Grilled Pineapple & Chicken kabobs are bursting with bold flavours. The sweet and savoury teriyaki sauce mixed with fresh peppers, pineapple, red onions and tender chicken totally hit the spot! I love making my own teriyaki sauce as most contain gluten. Tamari is gluten free and always my go to. I am obsessed with grilled pineapple. It is one of my favourite things to eat in the summer months. These kebabs taste like dinner and a sweet dessert!
