  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium tamari soy sauce, gluten-free

DIRECTIONS

  1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
  2. Place chicken in resealable plastic bag (or container);
  3. add soy sauce, oil, and ginger; seal bag and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to marinate.
  4. Preheat gas or charcoal grill on medium heat.
  5. Place a piece of chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat, so the skewer has two pieces of each ingredient. Repeat with seven remaining skewers. Discard marinade that contained chicken.
