Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chicken with about half of the jerk seasoning; toss gently to coat. Cut any large pea pods in half crosswise.

  • Alternately thread chicken, sugar snap peas, pineapple, and sweet pepper onto 4 long (12-inch) or 8 shorter metal skewers (see Tip), leaving about 1/4 inch between pieces.

  • In a small saucepan, combine remaining jerk seasoning and the spreadable fruit. Cook and stir just until spreadable fruit is melted; set aside.

  • Place kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are crisp-tender, turning once and brushing occasionally with sauce during the last 3 minutes of grilling.


Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak in enough water to cover for at least 1 hour before using.
