Directions

  1. In large container with lid, or in large zip-top bag, mix together chicken, Mojo, nectar and Adobo until coated; transfer to refrigerator. Marinate chicken at least 2 hrs, or up to 24 hours.
  2. Strain chicken, discarding marinade. On each skewer, alternately thread pineapple, chicken, onions and peppers.
  3. Prepare grill to medium-high heat (or heat oil in large grill pan over medium-high heat). Cook skewers, turning once, until chicken turns dark golden brown and cooked through and vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Transfer to serving platter; serve warm.

Footnotes

  • Cooking tip from LA COCINA GOYA
  • Grill Marks Guaranteed! To ensure your grilled chicken develops golden-brown grill marks, remember these grilling tips: First, make sure the grill is piping hot (about 500 degrees F). Then, place chicken on the grates and let it cook, untouched, for at least 5 minutes (or up to 7 minutes). Then, flip once. Allowing the chicken to cook undisturbed over the hot flame will give the heat enough time to create the sear marks you love.

Made these last night and we loved them. The flavors were amazing. I used red peppers and red onions because I hade them on hand. I also added some red pepper flakes and fresh minced garlic to the marinade. This is a keeper and easy too. My husband wants me to try it with shrimp next time.
