Branner and I are off tomorrow morning for a trip to Beech with Kiki and Coco (my sister-in-law and niece). We are all looking forward to beating the heat and getting out of Charlotte for a little while...again. These skewers are on the menu tonight as Barry requested chicken and something healthy. I'm going to serve them with jasmine rice and maybe a simple salad.
3 T soy sauce
3 T brown sugar
2 T rice wine vinegar
1 T sesame oil
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t garlic powder
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 2" pieces
fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
In a small bowl, mix soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic powder. Place chicken pieces in a dish and pour marinade over them. Cover, and marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours. Alternate a piece of chicken with a pineapple chunk onto skewers. Grill 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally. Enjoy!
