Chicken Kebabs, Hawaiian Style

Makes 10 kebabs 3 pieces of chicken each

2 large chicken breast, cut in bite size pieces
2 bell peppers cut in big pieces (any color you want)
1/2 cup red onion chopped in chunks
1 1/2 cup pineapple chunks or 1 8-ounce can pineapple
1/2 cup pineapple juice (if using can pineapple, you can use the juice in the can)
1 large lime
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chilli powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
1tablespoon fresh thyme
 wooden skewers or metal skewers.

Combine the chilli powder, salt, black pepper and cumin. Set aside.

Season the bell peppers with a tablespoon of olive oil plus a tablespoon of the chilli mixture, rub the oil and seasoning all over the peppers and set aside.

Season the pineapple with 2 tablespoons of lime juice plus 1/2 tablespoon of the chilli mixture, set aside.

Season the onions with 1 tablespoon of lime juice plus salt and pepper and set aside.

Season the chicken with 2 tablespoons of the chilli mixture, plus 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1/2 cup pineapple juice, garlic, ginger, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary and fresh thyme. Rub all the ingredients all over the chicken and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes. (more, if you have more time, overnight will be perfect, but 20 minutes is good enough).

Turn on the oven on broil. (This recipe is also great for grilling, but I don't have a grill :( )

If you are using wooden skewers make sure to soak them in water for about 20-30 minutes to prevent them from catching on fire...

Grab a skewer and start building your kebabs as you please. E.a.  1piece of onion + chicken +bell pepper + pineapple + chicken, bell pepper, onion, pineapple, chicken and bell pepper... and so on...

Continue to build the kebabs until you are done... Broil in the oven for about 10-12 minutes. Or grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side. You are done.

Serve with white rice and garnish with some parsley! Enjoy
