- Prepare the marinade by adding garlic, ginger, brown sugar, pineapple juice, chili garlic and soy sauce in a bowl. Whisk until combined – toss in diced chicken and coat thoroughly. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Preheat a grill or grill pan on medium-high.
- Remove chicken from marinade and reserve to create a glaze.
- Assemble kabobs using metal or wooden skewers alternating between chicken, onion, pineapple and bell peppers.
- Place assembled chicken and veggie skewers on the grill and cook for 14-16 minutes, rotating frequently until chicken and peppers begin to char.
- While kabobs are cooking, take the remaining marinade and heat in a small saucepan, allowing the mixture to come to a boil. Combine the cornstarch with cold water to create a slurry. Once the marinade is at a simmer, add slurry and mix – the glaze will begin to thicken. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes and remove from heat.
- Using a small pastry brush, baste the kabobs with the glaze and continue to grill to allow the brown sugar and pineapple to caramelize.
- The kabobs are ready when the vegetables are charred, pineapple is lightly caramelized and chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.
- Garnish with sliced scallions and enjoy!
