With a mix of sweet, tangy, and savory, what's not to love about these chicken kabobs? This is an easy kabob recipe. You can fix the chicken and pineapple ahead of time. Then, slide on the skewers for a quick meal or entree for your next party. You don't even need a side dish when serving these. They're very filling. We love the mix of flavors in these kabobs.
