"I first tried these kabobs when my daughter-in-law made them for my granddaughter's birthday party," writes Norma Wells of Cookson, Oklahoma. "Full of soy sauce, ginger and pineapple flavors, these appetizers are popular when I serve them at get-togethers.


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash each pepper, garlic powder and ground ginger
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 small green pepper, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder and ginger. Pour half of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. For each kabob, thread a piece of chicken, green pepper and pineapple onto a wooden toothpick. Place kabobs on a microwave-safe plate. Add honey to the reserved marinate.
  3. Microwave kabobs on high for 3-4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally. Baste with reserved marinade during the last minute of cooking.
