Turkey Pepper Kabobs
This is a summertime favorite at our house. While the turkey is a nice change of pace and tastes great with the sweet basting sauce and pineapple, the recipe also works well with cubed chicken.—Traci Goodman, Paducah, Kentucky
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
- 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons canola oil

- 1 large sweet onion, cut into 3/4-inch pieces

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.
