Turkey Pepper Kabobs Recipe

Turkey Pepper Kabobs Recipe

This is a summertime favorite at our house. While the turkey is a nice change of pace and goes great with the sweet basting sauce and pineapple, the recipe also works well with chunks of chicken. —Traci Goodman of Paducah, Kentucky
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1 pound turkey breast tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces


  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup juice (discard remaining juice or save for another use). In a large bowl, combine the reserved pineapple juice, brown sugar, oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and mustard.
  • 2. Pour 1/3 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add turkey. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 3. Drain and discard used marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the vegetables, turkey and pineapple. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly.
  • 4. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink, basting frequently with reserved marinade. Yield: 4 servings.

"Although I used chicken instead of turkey, since I had none in the house, I followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Just a nice hint of sweetness."
