Hawaiian Kabobs

Tonight I will have Jud cook some hamburger patties along with the chicken kabobs. When Jud grills, I usually have him grill for another meal at the same time. No need to start the grill twice when once will do. I put the pork tenderloin in a marinade this morning. When we get ready to grill we don't do it like the recipe says. We found that if we put things on the skewer that have similar cooking times it works best. Before putting the vegetables on the skewers, coat with extra virgin olive oil. Then put the meat on one, the tomatoes, pineapple, and mushrooms on another, the peppers and onions on the last. I am serving roasted potatoes and some fried okra for the side dishes.
Hawaiian Kabobs
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/4 cup oil
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons ginger

1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast cut in cubes
1 cup unsweet pineapple chunks
1 green pepper cut in cubes
12 medium mushrooms
12 cherry tomatoes

Combine 1st 8 ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 min. let cool. Pour mixture into a shallow dish and add chicken cubes. Marinate 1 hour. Put last 5 ingredients on a skewer and grill 20 min. or until veg. or soft.
