Chicken Kebabs

This means summer to me.  Anything BBQ-ee or anything with meat and pineapples.  Im not sure if this is an Irish thing or whether its just my family and friends, but when we talk about BBQ we mean pre oven cooked foods place on the BBQ for literally 10 minutes just to get that charcoal smell from the food.

We have the greatest fear of food poisoning when it comes to BBQ and strangely enough i have never in my life got food poisoning from any BBQ ever.  Maybe from 1 too may beverages at one but never from the food.  

This could also come from the fact that there is so much work with a BBQ for those of us that are complete novice to them that were afraid that if we spend too much time fiddling with charcoal and whatnot the sun will have gone in and we will have to cook the food indoors anyway.

Anyhow this is one of those classic BBQ because this was not cooked on a grill but in my oven, using BBQ seasoning to flavor them however they were eaten AL fresco, so that must count for something right? 

If your brave enough, fire ahead but this is my BBQ food.

Weightwatchers Propoints Value per Recipe 8
Weightwatchers Propoints Value per Serving 4
Serves 2
3 skewers per serving


2 chicken breast
1 onion halved and slices peeled from it
1 bell pepper
1 tin of chopped pineapples
2 Tbl of BBQ seasoning
Salt and pepper
Spray oil


Chop the chicken into medium sized chunks.  Chop the peppers into large chunks.  In a bowl mix the chicken, peppers, onion and pineapple.  Add in the seasoning and pour some pineapple juice over the mix.  Add salt and pepper.  Cover with cling film and refridgerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to gas mark 5. 

Remove from fridge and slide a piece of either meat, veg or fruit onto the skewer, alternating between each. If using wooden skewers, soak in warm water for a couple of minutes before hand.  Repeat process until all of the mix is used up on the 6 skewers. 

Place the skewers on a baking tray and mist with a little spray oil.  Place in the oven for 15 minutes.  Then pump up the heat to gas mark 8 for 4 minutes just to char the veg. 

I served this with homemade Potatoe salad with bacon and a side salad.

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have too!
