  • 1/2 cup  barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup  soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 teaspoon  sesame oil
  • cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 cups  cubed pineapple
  • red onion, diced
  • 3 bell peppers, red, orange, and yellow, cubed
  • Grilling skewers


  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 1 hour before using to prevent burning.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat (about 425°F).


  • In a large bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, soy sauce, honey, sriracha, oil, garlic, ginger, salt, and pepper until completely combined. Remove 1/2 cup of the mixture and place in an airtight container (this will be used for basting later).
  • Add chicken to the remaining marinade and combine, cover and chill for 30 minutes to 2 hours.


  • Once marinated, build skewers by alternating chicken, pineapple, peppers, and red onion.
  • Place skewers on an oiled and preheated grill, and brush with reserved marinade.
  • Cook 5 minutes and flip, brushing the other side with marinade as well.
  • Cook 5-10 more minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
