It is almost summertime meaning that it is time for all things grilled! Troy and I just bought a new gas grill after our old one kicked it and we are loving it. I have a list of a bunch of grilled recipes that I want to try and am finally getting around to making these kebabs with pineapple, chicken, peppers, onions and a sweet, tangy marinade that I've been wanting to make for quite awhile now.

These skewers are pretty easy to make and just require marinading time. Funny story, my sister made similar kebabs last year and brought them over my house to grill. We were eating them and they tasted amazing but we realized that the chicken had gotten kind of mushy/gooey. We could not figure out what had happened.

After some research, we realized that it was because she marinaded the pineapple and chicken together overnight on the skewers which caused the chicken to break down. Lesson learned: do not marinade chicken and pineapple right next to each other for 24 hours. They were still delicious though and we joke about it to this day!

These can be eaten as a complete meal or served with some brown rice to make the meal a little more filling. Or they would be fun with some other grilled veggies. These kebabs are super fun for summer and you can feel free to customize however you like. You could use pork instead of chicken and add in other vegetables if you like.

I served these to my mom and daughter one day for lunch and we all loved them. There is nothing like a tasty grilled chicken breast. It was my first grilled chicken of the year which made it even more delicious. My toddler liked the pineapple the best while I liked the chicken the most.

For this recipe, I used all ingredients that I purchased at Meijer. Meijer has an awesome produce section including the freshest items. When we lived on the west side of the state of Michigan, we did almost all of our shopping at Meijer since we liked the food and it was one of the only grocery stores around. We have always been happy with their food selection and quality.
The Grand Taste Event is coming up at the Meijer LPGA Classic golf tournament. There will be tons of food and beverage samples from different restaurants, breweries and Meijer vendors. I heard that it was great last year and love sampling different foods so if you are in the Rockford, MI area June 16-18th, you should consider checking it out.

The tournament gets it's name from the Simply Give program which helps to provide food to local food pantries and has generated more than $26 million since the start. People are being asked to buy a $10 Simply Give donation card at checkout at Meijer which will be converted to a Meijer food-only gift card and given to a food pantry. This program allows the pantries the flexibility to choose the grocery items that they need instead of choosing them for them like many programs do. This program helps with local hunery relief which is an issue in the midwest.
