I made this for a Hawaiian-themed bbq. I read through many of the other reviews & found them very helpful. I gathered together the most pertinent info & the dish turned out wonderful! Here are the changes I made to make the dish 5*'s. I used rice vinegar instead of sherry. Rice vinegar makes chicken tender. I used fresh ginger & garlic. Triple when using fresh herbs. I added fresh mushrooms. You could add other veggies too. As another reviewer pointed out, it is safer to separate the chicken & veggies. After marinating several hours, I skewered the chicken and vegetables separately as they are done at different times. I soaked the skewers in water to keep them from burning. After I skewered the chicken and vegetables I used the left over marinade from the vegetables, like other reviewers suggested, heated it on the stove until boiling & added 2T of cornstarch dissolved in a 1/4 -1/3 of water to make a basting sauce which I applied during the last few minutes of grilling. The dish was a hit! Everyone loved it! The basting sauce was worth the extra few minutes. It really topped it off. Yes, I would make it again! It was worth the time, which really wasn't much. What was time consuming for me was deciding what to make, reading the reviews & putting it all together. I wrote this review hoping to condense all the reviews I read for other viewers so they don't have to go through all the time & trouble I did.

I used fresh pinapple for these and made the mistake of putting the chicken and pinapple on the skewers the night before and marinating. When we ate them the chicken was pasty on the inside. I think it was because the enzyme in the fresh pineapple ate away at the chicken all night. I would recommend marinating the chicken and the pineapple in separate containers and then putting on skewers at the last minute if you are using fresh pinapple. Otherwise it was delicious.

I used 1 tsp. sesame oil (instead of 1 Tbl.) to cut down on the fat, and there was no difference! Marinating overnight is the key. I baked them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or so. Awesome!! Thanks for the recipe!
