This is one of those pairs of recipes you just make together. I couldn’t help myself. I was inspired by something Martha Stewart made and adapted it to fit my tastes. It was soooo good. And made without a grill. On account of we don’t have one.
We do, however, have a broiler in our new place, so we used that and it worked just fine!
If you don’t feel like making the rice with the skewers, it’s easy to make only the skewers using pineapple juice from a can. You can also drain a can of pineapple packed in juice and freeze the pineapple for smoothies or some other delicious use.
One bonus of these is that they are SO easy to pack with fruits and vegetables. I only had one with chicken on it, and while the chicken was good, there is something SO good about grilled and broiled vegetables I couldn’t resist!
Originally, when I made this recipe, I only marinated the chicken. Next time I make these, I’m going to use half the marinade on the fruits and veggies in a separate container so that they get the same additional boost of flavor as the chicken. Sooo good.Print
