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.
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.
