Maple Chicken Kabobs


  • 6 whole 6-7 ounce chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 whole pineapple, finely diced
  • 2 whole jalapenos, minced
  • 1 bunch (small) cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 whole small red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar (or white vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 cans Bush's Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin' Beans

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: If you’re using wooden skewers, be sure to soak the skewers in water for several hours first.

Step 2: Slice the chicken breasts into six even pieces, then thread each piece onto a separate skewer.

Step 3: Combine maple syrup, soy sauce, and pineapple juice in a small saucepan.

Step 4: Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and let it bubble up and reduce by about one-fourth. Set aside to cool.

Step 5: In a small bowl, combine chopped pineapple, jalapeno, cilantro, red onion, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper. Set this aside, and try not to eat it all with a bag of blue corn chips! I speak from experience here.

Step 6: Grill the chicken kabobs until they’re done, then baste the maple reduction over the kabobs toward the end of the grilling time. Remove them from heat and place them on a platter.

Step 7: To serve, top the kabobs with the jalapeno salsa. They look gorgeous on a serving platter!
