Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

We just love grilling in the summertime! Last night we had these yummy kebabs. It's a Weight Watcher recipe that I've made several time before...only 6 points per serving! Very tasty and full of flavor!

Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs
Source: Weight Watchers

1 lb. uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 medium pineapple
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 large onion
1/4 c. pineapple juice or orange juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 T. low-sodium soy sauce
1 T. olive oil
2 servings cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
2 c. cooked white rice

Cut each chicken breast, pineapple, pepper, and onion into approximately twenty-four 1-inch-thick pieces. Combine chicken, pineapple juice, garlic, soy sauce and oil in a large nonmetallic bowl; marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.

Preheat grill. Lightly coat vegetables with cooking spray. Thread 2 pieces of pepper, pineapple, chicken and onion onto each of 8 skewers. Brush with marinade. (Note: If using wooden skewers, soak in water to prevent charring.)

Grill over medium-hot coals until chicken is completely cooked, about 8 to 10 minutes, turning kebabs every 2 minutes so they're cooked evenly on all sides. Serve with rice.

Yield 2 kebabs and 1/2 cup rice per serving.
