12 slice
bacon
3 c
fresh pineapple chunks (1 inch cubes)
1/3 c
hickory-smoked barbecue sauce

Step-By-Step

1Soak eight short bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes (or use four long metal skewers).

Thread skewers with chicken, folded bacon, and pineapple chunks, leaving a 1/4-inch space between pieces.
2Heat grill to medium-high for gas, or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Place skewers on grill and cook for 6 minutes; turn and grill for 6 minutes longer.
3Meanwhile, in small microwave-safe bowl, stir together barbecue sauce and pineappple preserves; microwave on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes or until warm. Microwave cooked rice following package directions.
4Remove skewers from grill. Brush with warm barbecue sauce mixture. Serve with hot rice and remaining barbecue sauce mixture on the side. Enjoy!
