Mustard Chicken and Pineapple Skewers

This post was brought to you by the makers of French’s Sweet Yellow Mustard and Spicy Yellow Mustard. I received compensation to write this post through the French’s Sweet and Spicy Influencer Program. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Sweet or Spicy Mustard Chicken and Pineapple Skewers are tender and juicy. They are a simple and flavorful recipe perfect for your next BBQ!

While these mustard chicken and pineapple skewers are perfect they way they are, you can easy throw in a few more veggies like peppers or asparagus. These would go well on a bed of Cauliflower rice or Slow cooker mashed potatoes.

Sweet or spicy

It wasn’t too long ago that I told you about my family’s obsession with skewers. We hadn’t really tried them before this summer, but we’ve been making them every month and love them! We especially love that the possibilities are endless — we can make sweet or savory recipes depending on the occasion, or even our mood.

Recently, I partnered with French’s Mustard to create a custom recipe using their two new mustard variations – Sweet Yellow Mustard and Spicy Yellow Mustard. Since we have been enjoying skewers so much I thought I’d try out the mustards on some chicken kabobs. I wanted to make sure that the two new mustard flavors could be used interchangeably and thought that SWEET or SPICY Mustard Chicken & Pineapple Skewers would be a hit! I’m happy to report that they were indeed a hit and were delicious. The best part? They were simple and were perfect for our family BBQ.

With the mustard vinaigrette, it is so easy to make it a sweet or spicy experience, which is why we used French’s new mustard flavors. French’s Sweet Yellow Mustard has a delicious touch of brown sugar and French’s Spicy Yellow Mustard gets a zesty kick from cayenne pepper. Best part is that both new mustards are fat-free and gluten-free, making them a quality, easy go-to ingredient for everyday cooking! Whether you’re feeling like a sweet recipe or a spicy one or a little bit of both, you will LOVE these Mustard Chicken and Pineapple Skewers.

Making mustard chicken skewers

MARINATE. Make your Mustard Vinaigrette by combining garlic, honey, mustard, vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well. Add chicken to your bowl (or to Tupperware) and marinate for at least 4 hours.

GRILL. Place chicken and pineapple on skewers making sure a piece of chicken is at both ends so pieces don’t fall off the skewers. Grill on Medium/High Heat for 15-20 minutes rotating occasionally.

GARNISH. When done, sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately. ENJOY!

Tips + Variations

Making the kabobs on the stove would be really tricky. No kabobs would fit in a normal size pan. If this is your only optional I would recommend cooking the ingredients before putting them on the skewers.

Easily make these in the oven. Line a rimmed pan with foil and place the skewers on top of it, You will have to turn the kabobs every 10 minutes or so to help them cook evenly.

When choosing a pineapple, the bottom of your pineapple should smell sweet and the pineapple should be bright yellow. The pineapple should be overall firm but have a little bit of give when you squeeze it.

The marinating process is really important for this recipe because it prevents the chicken from drying out. To equally prevent dry chicken you will want to avoid overbaking/grilling the chicken. This can be done by using small pieces of chicken that will cook relatively quickly.

Storing Info

STORE leftover kabobs on or off of the skewers in the fridge in an airtight container for 2-4 days. I recommend taking all of the leftover chicken and pineapple off the skewers and storing them separately. 

To FREEZE, let the skewers cool completely before placing the ingredients in an airtight container. 

You are going to want to let your chicken marinade for awhile, so this is a super easy make ahead recipe. You can also cut your pineapple ahead of time as well.

  1. These look fantastic, Kristyn! I love how simple they are and I’m sure the flavors combine to be delicious. I love mustard so I will definitely be trying these out!

  2. These skewers look amazing! I think we would all love these – thanks so much for the recipe!

    1. It really is so delicious, and making the marinade sweet or spicy adds so much flavor to the chicken. You’ll love them!!

  3. This look awesome! I can’t decide between sweet or spice so I have to try a little bit of both! 🙂

    1. We tried the sweet and they were delicious!! We’ll be trying the spicy version soon. Thanks for stopping by, Vera! 😉

  4. This sounds amazing! I had no idea French’s carried spicy mustard! YUM! Thanks for the yummy recipe!

    1. Hi Liz! I haven’t tried it in the oven, but I think it would work too. I would just experiment on the time. We did it on the grill knowing that we loved grilled pineapple, but if you give it a try could you let me know how you long you baked it for so I can let other readers know? Thanks!
