Take me back to Hawaii… Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs Recipe

Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

What is it about Hawaii that is so enticing?  Well let me rephrase that… what is it about Kauai that is so enticing?  I have been to three of the Islands now, the Big Island, Kauai (twice), most recently, Maui, and by far, I just LOVE Kauai.  Just like Italy, I left a little piece of my heart there.

Currently I live in Huntington Beach, California.  It is a big city that is over populated and definitely a tourist destination.  Although I do love living here (we have great restaurants, parks, outdoor activities, and of course the beach), there is something very special about untouched and quiet Kauai.  Most people prefer Maui for more of the “nightlife,” but being that I live in the city I do, I just LOVE the peaceful, slow-paced, mellow, beachy Kauai vibe.   These Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs, along with a little “Iz” or Jack Johnson, to take me back to my little piece of paradise.

Extra sweet grilled pineapple, red peppers and marinated Chicken breast, make these Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs something you will definitely want to make again and again.  Serve with my delicious and crisp romaine salad for a perfect outdoor meal!
