Growing up, I remember eating Hawaiian shish kebobs for dinner in the summer. We had long, metal skewers and my job was to put the chopped up veggies, pineapple chunks, and chicken on the skewers so we could throw them on the barbecue.

Since then, I’ve been a big fan of Hawaiian chicken dinners. Some of our favorites include Huli Huli Chicken, Mochiko Chicken, Hawaiian Shoyu Chicken, Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry, and Skillet Pineapple Chicken.

But this Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken Skewers recipe is something our whole family can help make.

My oldest has been learning how to chop up vegetables, so he does some while I do the rest. Then, both our boys are in charge of creating a pattern and adding the vegetables, chicken, and pineapple to the skewers.

Not only is this a tasty recipe to make at home, but it’s also one of our favorite Hawaiian recipes to make when cooking on vacation in Hawaii!
