Just a pinch chicken pineappleJust A Pinch Recipe Column

By Janet Tharpe

I love the mix of flavors in Luci Vieira’s chicken pineapple kabob. This is an easy recipe you can fix ahead of time. Then, slide on the skewers for a quick meal after work or a great entrée for the next cookout. You may want to double the recipe — these will be gone before you know it.

Oh-so smoky and full of flavor, Denny Keller was sure on to something when he came up with Papa’s grilled chicken with a twist. The sauce is what makes the chicken.

See step-by-step photos of Luci’s recipe and Denny’s plus thousands more from home cooks nationwide can be found at justapinch.com/kabobs.

You’ll also find a meal planner, coupons and chances to win. Enjoy and remember, use “just a pinch.” — Janet
