Create the flavor of the islands by grilling chicken on skewers with pinepple, onion and bell pepper pieces, and topping with a spicy lime butter.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a shallow dish or large plastic zip-top bag. Add chicken and onion, stirring to cover. Refrigerate 3 to 6 hours.

Step 2

Drain chicken and onion; discard marinade. Thread chicken, onion, and next 3 ingredients on 10 or 12 (10-inch) skewers. Brush with Lime-Cayenne Butter.

Step 3

Grill over medium heat (325° to 350°) for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, turning and basting several times with Lime-Cayenne Butter.

Made this tonight. Loved it. So did picky husband! Will definitely make again with some more heat though. We like it hot here! But recipe as it stands is 5 star!

Chicken was moist and had some flavor. Would have preferred more flavor in it. The lime-cayenne butter had some flavor but not what I expected for the chicken. Will try again with some additions to the marinade.

made this as directed and it was easy and tasty. beautiful presentation for company - they even got in on the fun by helping chop peppers, cube pineapple, and thread skewers. I serve with white rice and jalapeno-lime black beans. mmmm. definitely need to make at least once a month over the summer!

I googled and found the RECIPE FOR THE LIME CAYENNE BUTTER: 1/2 cup butter 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt. I have not tried it yet, but wanted to share the recipe. Had to give a rating to post.

Couldn't bring up or find lime-cayenne butter either. Looks great and would hate to ruin it!

I saw this recipe in Coastal Living's October 2010 issue and just knew I had to try it. Awesome! Great flavor! I substituted a large shallot in place of the garlic (since one of us isn't a fan of garlic) and 1/2 tsp. ground dried ginger since I didn't have any fresh. Served this dish with white rice this time. If appetites are not very big I think this would even serve six. We had leftovers which heated well in a covered ovenproof dish at 350 degrees. The recipe is definitely a "keeper" and I will make again and again. Also would be good for entertaining as we grill all the time.

OMG This was so good. I put the chicken on the skewers. I cooked the onion, peppers, pineapple, and tomatoes in a wire basket seperately on the grill. The store didn't have fresh ginger for the marinate so I used 1/4 tsp. of ground ginger. I also put 1/4 tsp of garlic powder instead of garlic salt in the lime-cayenne butter because I used salted butter and thought that it might be to salty. Can't wait to make again. Might try it with shrimp next time.
