(Serves 10)

Ingredients

1lb. chicken breasts, boneless skinless (cut into ½” wide strips)
1lb. bacon, preferably applewood smoked bacon
8oz. fresh pineapple wedges
1 jar good quality BBQ sauce
Wooden BBQ skewers

Instructions

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil and pour into a shallow baking dish containing the wooden skewers.
Allow the skewers to sit in the water for 30 minutes
It is important to do this so the skewers do not dry out and catch fire while you are cooking the meat
Pre heat the grill so that it is nice and hot, about 400 degrees
Place a chicken strip on the skewer, making sure that it is firmly attached to the skewer
Tightly wrap a piece of the bacon around the chicken and attach the end of the bacon strip to the skewer to hold it in place
Put a wedge of pineapple on to the end of the skewer
Generously spread the BBQ sauce on top of the skewers and grill for 10-12 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is cooked through
Place the skewers on to a platter
Serve hot, with an additional side of the BBQ sauce
