Chicken skewers and pineapple sauce

Certain tastes just go together so well, whether you’re making a casserole, a pizza, or (at this time of year), barbecue skewers! I love chicken and pineapple together, and if you throw in a little bit of Canadian bacon and plantains, I’m really happy. But if you serve it with pineapple sauce, I’m in heaven :-)

Here’s what we skewered up the other night that cooked beautifully in just under thirty minutes:

Chicken Skewers with Pineapple Sauce

8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, each cut into 4 chunks
Fresh pineapple, 1/2 cut into chunks
2 plantains, sliced into thick chunks
4 thick slices of Canadian bacon
Other 1/2 of the fresh pineapple
2 T canola oil
2 T lime juice

Alternate your chunks of chicken, pineapple, plantain, and Canadian bacon on the skewers. Grill for about 25 minutes over a medium heat grill, turning frequently.

Place the other half of the fresh pineapple in a food processor or blender and whirl until crushed well. Add the lime juice, oil, and oregano to taste (fresh is best!) and stir. Serve as a sauce with your skewers.
