Bacon Wrapped Hawaiian Chicken Skewers

Bacon Wrapped Hawaiian Chicken Skewers
I may have gone a little overboard with these skewers. It wasn’t till Mr. Cooking Jar and I had devoured the whole lot and we were still hungry that he suggested stretching the meats a little with a filler. You know, peppers or onions. With this being the first time I had ever made skewers, this little piece of information would have been nice to know beforehand!

Anyway, if you want to be carnivores like we were and go meaty all the way, the recipe works fine. If you want to put your meat to good work though, throw in some green peppers or onion wedges in there. I think green peppers would make it look great for contrast. Yellow pineapple, pinkish-reddish meat and green peppers. Now why didn’t I think of that before? Oh right, because I don’t like peppers. But! It’s handy to have a significant other you can toss your unwanted food at. And by toss I don’t mean to literally throw food in their face (although that’s always fun), but rather, sneakily put it in their plate.

    Yum to the interlinking the pineapples with bacon and chicken. I can just imagine, the sweet and tangy pack against the meat.
