It is sure to be a huge hit! This recipe is so easy to adapt for what you have on hand.

We have used both fresh pineapple and canned pineapple in a pinch. Sometimes we switch up the veggies for what we have on hand.

It is truly easy to make work for everyone. This is one of those meals that our entire family loved this recipe.

We have a lot of fun making these skewers. It is very simple for everyone to choose their favorite veggies and even add extra.

You can also really feed a crowd on a budget with this recipe. The meat stretches because of all of the vegetables.

Alternate with extra vegetables if you need to and stretch your meat! We also like teriyaki chicken kabobs.

We love to grill but sometimes the weather does not permit. When this happens, just make the Hawaiian chicken kabobs in the oven on a baking sheet.

You can still marinate the chicken prior to baking if you prefer. It is delicious either way.
