I enjoy trying new recipes especially for summer, there seem to be more of a variety of fall and winter foods than summer foods.
By the end of May, I am so over the usual hamburger and hot dog ordeal…that even suggesting it for dinner becomes and instant no. Can anyone else relate?
Last week when I was browsing Chip and Joanna’s Magazine Magnolia I found a recipe in there that I had to try with the grilled chicken breasts we were having for dinner.
Luck must have been on my side, because the only item I did not have on had was the corn on the cob. So I ran up the street to Aldi’s and grabbed them.

Do you want another excuse to fire up the grill this week? Look no further! Yesterday, for dinner my mom and I made Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs. They were delish!
I am really particular about how chicken is prepared…like extremely picky. I can thank Adrian for that one.
What you need:
1 Box KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce & Dry Rub, Sweet Honey
1 3/4 C. Pineapple Juice
4 Large boneless skinless, Chicken Breasts
1 C. Mushrooms, halved
1 Red Bell Pepper
1 Orange Bell Pepper
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 C. Pineapple, diced
1 Purple Onion
- Combine 1 3/4 Pineapple Juice and 1 Pouch KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce & Dry Rub. Set Aside.
- Either cut the chicken up into bite size cubes or leave the chicken breast whole. Marinate them in the ingredients above that you set aside. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes. We did ours for about 6 hours.
- Wash & dry your veggies..and cut them up.
- Preheat your grill on high
- Assemble the chicken veggies on skewers any way you want to. Tip: The mushrooms and pineapples make good stoppers.
- Grill for about 12-16 minutes until cooked through. Tip: Brush the finished kabobs with the left over marinate.
** You can find the original recipe here on Yummly**
We marinated our chicken in the fridge 6 hours, if your chicken breasts are really thick you can poke holes in them. Like how you would to a baked potato before putting it in the oven.
We ended up using Shiitake Mushrooms, because the local little store didn’t have whole mushrooms..only the pre-cut ones.
Assembling the Kabobs!
Prior to grilling.
The rest of the marinade was brushed on the Chicken Kabobs.
Look at these beauties!
We paired ours with Oriental Rice, that my grandma Sue in Hawaii taught my mom.
What kind of Kabobs do you like?

My mom makes the best egg rolls known to man kind. I am really picky with egg rolls. This summer I have been having a really hard time find a Chinese restaurant where their egg rolls aren’t mushy inside. So I have been dying for my moms egg rolls they are super good and very versatile.
I am going to share with you her recipe that she made up herself. A lot of my moms recipes are to taste meaning your add as much or as little as you want of certain spices.
