* 1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast

* 1/2 medium pineapple

* 1 medium green pepper(s)

* 1 medium sweet red pepper(s)

* 1 large onion(s), spanish

* 1/4 cup pineapple juice, or orange juice

* 3 medium garlic clove(s), minced

* 2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

* 1 tsp olive oil

* 2 sprays cooking spray

* 2 cup cooked white rice, kept hot


* 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. Yields 2 kebabs and 1/2 cup rice per serving.

Although this is a grill recipe, you can cook it indoors by broiling the kebabs in the oven, about 5 inches from the heat, for about 8 to 10 minutes.
