Servings 4 Servings


  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
  • 2 medium yellow bell peppers de-seeded, de-ribbed and cut into large chunks
  • 2 medium orange bell peppers de-seeded, de-ribbed and cut into large chunks
  • 1 large red onion cut into 8 large chunks
  • 1 14-oz. can unsweetened crushed pineapple
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • bamboo skewers or metal


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate chicken cubes and veggie chunks for 2 to 4 hours. If using bamboo skewers, pre-soak them in water for 30 minutes, to prevent burning on the grill.
  • Place chicken cubes and veggie chunks in a large zipper-topped plastic bag. Combine remaining ingredients (pineapple through cinnamon) in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Pour mixture over chicken and veggies. Seal bag and turn to fully saturate with marinade. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  • At time of cooking, preheat grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Alternately thread marinated chicken and veggies onto skewers. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes, rotating often, until cooked through. Serve and enjoy!
