    Chicken-Pineapple Kabobs (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Kabobs are one of my absolute favorite things to make. Using an assembly line to kabob-making trims time in the kitchen. In this version, the flavor-packed marinade and dipping sauce adds a fresh kick to the sweet-tart chunks of fresh pineapple. For fewer kabobs, cook and store any left over pineapple and chicken; they make a nice addition to salads.

    Ingredients:
    2 pounds boneless chicken, cut into ¾-inch cubes
    1 2-pound pineapple, cut into ¾-inch cubes
    2 ½ cups flat-leaf parsley
    3 cloves garlic
    1 teaspoon sugar
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    ½ tablespoon red chili flakes
    ½ cup olive oil
    Up to 20 wood skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

    Directions:
    In a food processor, combine parsley, garlic, sugar, lime juice, vinegar and chili flakes and pulse 3-4 times. With the machine on, slowly pour in olive oil until you have a smooth sauce.

    Reserve half the sauce in a small bowl and add the rest to a plastic bag. Add chicken to sauce and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.

    In the meantime, preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill. Begin threading the skewers with a piece of pineapple, then chicken. Continue with other skewers, alternating pineapple and chicken. Grill 3-4 minutes per side.

    Serve with remaining sauce drizzled over kabobs or alongside.

    This recipe was wonderful. The chicken was tender and moist. I cooked it exactly as directed and had no problems. Will definitely make this again. **soak your kabob sticks in water before putting on the chicken and pineapple - it will prevent splintering.
