Where we live, spring is an incredibly short season. It seems like it’s snowing one day, and then the next day we are rocking flip-flips and turning on the A/C. I’m not mad about it, because I fully and truly LOVE summer (even in all of its ridiculously humid glory). I love days on the lake. I love lightning bugs. I love summer shandies. I love getting my hands dirty in the garden. I love bonfires. I lovvveeeee sundresses. And I sure as sugar love grilling!
I am the chief griller in our family, and it’s a true love affair. I love the flavor of grilling, and I love that cooking on the grill gets me outside after a day sitting at a desk. And maybe above all, I love that grilling means fewer dishes!
Grilled kabobs are one of my favorite nourishing summertime dinners. They are the epitome of simple, whole food. I think a lot of folks feel like eating a nourishing diet has to be complicated, but I argue that eating in a way that makes your body happy is actually the simplest way to eat. No counting, no reading books, no following meal plans. Just listen to your body, feed it want it wants, and keep what’s on your plate simple!
Making a kabob can be as simple as just sticking whatever foods make you happy onto a skewer. But to up your kabob game, here are my tips.
These Hawaiian chicken kabobs have that sweet and spicy thing going on that is oh-so-satisfying, especially when done on the grill. When you combine tender, juicy chunks of chicken (I like the True Goodness brand chicken from Meijer) with grilled chunks of pineapple and tons of fresh veggies? Oh man, it’s just absolutely one of my favorite summertime dinners.
You can serve these grilled chicken kabobs as is—seriously they are so satisfying on their own—with a side of rice. Or, to keep it nice and easy, I tend to grab a bag of Meijer brand kettle chips and a six pack of beer and call it dinner. These Sweet Maui Onion chips are a particularly awesome pairing with these Hawaiian chicken kabobs. I learned while I was visiting the Meijer headquarters last month that they recently reformulated all of their Meijer brand kettle chips. We got to taste test all the new flavors, and HOLY WHOA are they addictive! They also are all naturally flavored (which you know is my jam).
I love the combo of bell peppers, zucchini, red onion, pineapple, and juicy chicken here, but you can feel free to experiment with the combos that would make you happy—this marinade and grill sauce will work on all kinds of goodies! Enjoy.
