BBQ Chicken Pineapple Skewers

For dinner on our first gluten free day, I thought I would whip up something my husband could not argue with….BBQ!

I picked up some peppers, onions and chicken at the farmers market and pineapple was on sale so as I looked in my fridge, it was a no brainer!

This is a super easy recipe that is perfect for that Summer BBQ or a quick weeknight dinner. Marinade the chicken in the ingredients below and let sit for 4 hours or so in the fridge. I also soak my wooden skewers in water while I marinade the chicken and veggies so they don’t blacken too much. I do like to use the wooden ones as I find they add a nice smokey taste, which I love. I pick my skewers up on Amazon because they are the cheapest and the quality it great. I bought them at the Dollar Store once (and only once) and they burst into flames immediately, even after soaking.
