“Can't wait to grill these up - they sound delicious!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 whole chicken breasts (6-7 ounces each)
  • 12 cup maple syrup
  • 14 cup soy sauce
  • 14 cup pineapple juice
  • 12 whole pineapple, finely diced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely minced
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper


  1. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for several hours. Slice each chicken breast into six even pieces and thread onto a separate skewer.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, and pineapple juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and let it bubble up and reduce by about one-fourth. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a small bowl, combine chopped pineapple, jalapeno, cilantro, red onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Grill chicken kababs until nearly done. In last few minutes of grilling, baste them with the maple syrup mixture. Remove from heat and place on a platter. To serve, top the kababs with the pineapple salsa.
