Caribbean Chicken & Pineapple Kebabs with Banana Salad

July/August 2011

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (24 votes)

A Caribbean-inspired marinade for these chicken-and-pineapple kebabs is flavored with pineapple juice, soy sauce, plenty of spices and spiked with rum. It’s moderately spicy from the use of jalapeño, but not nearly as spicy as the well-known jerk marinade, which uses the extremely hot Scotch bonnet chile. If spicy-hot is not your thing, leave the jalapeño out or use half. The creamy banana salad is a soothing counterpoint, but skip it if you like.

Amazing flavors come together perfectly

I took the time to make this today with help from Hubby at the grill. I just can't say enough about this recipe. I worried as we started cooking, mainly because I'm not a big fan of curry powder, but as usual, I was worried about nothing. I enjoy cooking as much as eating good food and this recipe was the epitome of both. I loved making this. And eating it was a bigger reward than I expected. It's absolutely wonderful. The flavors came together in the end for the perfect meal. (I served the kebabs with sticky rice). That banana salad...wow! I'm so happy there's some leftovers. We'll save and make again and again. Thank you Eating Well!!

This is wonderful but I would do away with the onions. The Banana salad was very tasty

tantalizing flavor profile

I made this last night using thigh meat instead of chicken breasts. My family loved the unusual flavors and tried to guess all the ingredients in the marinade. Several compliments. I will definitely use this recipe for entertaining.

I didn't make the banana salad, I served with a rice pilaf, and a chilled cucumber soup.

Great summer dish

I really liked this dish on the grill. It's great for a party, and it was easy to do. I pulled together a pear, Gorgonzola, and walnut salad, served on endive - so another finger food - see it here http://tiny.cc/4ts05 - for the perfect complete meal. Thanks!!
