Caribbean Jerk Chicken Skewers


Loving our Weber grill.  It's so easy and makes clean-up a breeze.  This recipe was really good.  The chicken was tender, flavorful and just flat out delicious.  The only thing I'd change next time is to only use a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.  Matt's not a pinapple fan, so I used red onion.  Other than that, it was very tasty.

Caribbean Jerk Chicken Skewers (Kraft)

1 env. (0.7 oz.) GOOD SEASONS Italian Dressing Mix
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp.oil
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp.ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground thyme
1/2 tsp.ground red pepper (cayenne)
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
3 red bell peppers, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
1 fresh pineapple, cut into 1-1/2-inch chunks (I substituted red onion)
MIX first 7 ingredients until well blended; pour over chicken in large bowl. Stir to evenly coat chicken. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate.    
HEAT grill to medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Thread chicken onto 12 skewers alternately with bell peppers and pineapple.    

GRILL 15 min. or until chicken is done, turning frequently.
