“This is a great recipe for a hot summer day, and it looks totally exotic so your guests will be amazed. You may want to spice the chicken up a bit more to add to the contrast between the meat and the fruit. Try adding some crushed chilies to your chicken marinade, or maybe some garam masala! ENJOY”

Original recipe yields 6 to 8 kebabs



  1. In a shallow glass bowl combine lemon juice, juice from pineapple can, salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix together. Add cubed chicken and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Soak wooden skewers, if you're using them.
  3. Combine the melted butter, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar, and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  4. Using metal or soaked wooden skewers, arrange chicken, pineapple chunks, and strawberries on each stick (approximately 4 to 6 pieces of each item per skewer). Brush kabobs with butter mixture. Place the kabobs on the hot grill. Cook, turning on all sides, until chicken is cooked through and strawberries are sizzling, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

Pretty good, but I had trouble keeping the strawberries on the skewers. And instead of the lemon marinade, I used honey, lime and soy sauce...really good. My husband and I liked these a lot and served them with rice pilaf and a nice green salad. I agree that a roasted strawberry is a real treat, too! :)



For a little bit of a contrast, add a vidalia onion or a red onion. It really compliments the fruits and chicken, making the kabobs not too sweet.



This was really good, but we added a few things to make it more interesting. I added onions, just to cut the over sweetness of the whole dish, and also parboiled some sweet potatoes, which I diced large and added to the kabobs. They were REALLY good with the rest of the ingredients. My husband and children gave this one a thumbs up, and we are serving it to some guests this weekend for a BBQ.
