Pineapple chicken skewers

"Skewered chicken tenders are brushed with a tropical mixture of pineapple juice, brown sugar and soy sauce, and then they're grilled. That 's all it takes to make these scrumptious kabobs."
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup light soy sauce

2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins or strips
1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix pineapple juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Remove from heat just before the mixture comes to a boil.
2. Place chicken tenders in a medium bowl. Cover with the pineapple marinade, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
3. Preheat grill for medium heat. Thread chicken lengthwise onto wooden skewers.
4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill chicken tenders 5 minutes per side, or until juices run clear. They cook quickly, so watch them closely.

I made these for Justin's party and they were a hit! very easy too. I marinated the chicken overnight though and I put the pineapple on with the chicken, i am sure you could add other vegis on there if you want. One can of pineapple yields enough juice for the recipe too. You could also serve this with rice and use the marinade as a sauce, just make sure you boil it good since the raw chicken was in it.

These are good! I made the marinade into a teriyaki sauce with veggies and had that over rice with the chicken. This is a new favorite flavor for chicken.
