Grilled BBQ Chicken Skewers

Prep: 20-30 minutes (depending on how much help you have) Grill: 10-30 minutes (depending on how many skewers you have)

1 pkg of boneless chicken breast or tenders
1 Red, Orange & Yellow Bell Pepepr
1 Jar of Dole Pinapple Chunks
1-2 Zuchinni Squash
1 pkg Whole Mushrooms
1 bottle Zesty Italian Dressing
1 bottle BBQ sauce
About 50 Bamboo Skewers - soaked in water for 30 minutes to prevent stick from burning on the grill.

These pieces are a little large.
They could probably be cut in half.
Drain pineapple juice from the jar of pineapples into a medium bowl.  Add bottle of dressing and bbq sause & mix with a wire wisk, set aside. Slice up chicken into bite size cubes.  Slice bell peppers & zuchinni squash into bite size pieces. Slice mushrooms in half. Put each of my veggies and chicken in their own bowls so when I am ready to skewer, I can grab what I need without digging for them; seperate bowls also makes it easier if you have others helping you skewer. 
Red, Orange & Yellow Bell Peppers are
sweeter than the traditional
green bell pepper.

Start skewering to where you are alternating between veggie & meat.  Place skewered meat & veggies into a large deep cake pan or turkey roaster. Once you have a layer of skewers, pour some of your bbq sauce mix onto the skewers. Continue layering & covering each layer with bbq sauce mix.

Cover pan(s) & refrigerate over night to marinate.

Place on medium heat grill for 10-15 minutes, rotating them about half way through. Skewers are cooked when you break one of the chicken pieces in half & it is not raw in the middle.  Discard leftover sauce that has touched the raw meat, since it may have picked up bacteria from the raw meat. 

I had many extra veggies after I finished skewering the meat so I sealed them in foil with a little butter, salt & pepper. Roasted them on the grill along with my skewers. It may be really hard, but refrain from eatting the veggies before they are cooked since you may have touched them with your hands that might have had raw chicken on them. 

I didn't have a chance to get a picture of them after they were cooked.  These are so good, I went straight to eating them & I was not thinking of pictures...
