Servings: 4

Total Time: 30 minutes


1 (20-oz) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained

1 medium red bell pepper

1 lb Deli chilled chicken tenders

Loading ...

1 cup white rice

12 (6-inch) bamboo skewers

1/4 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce, divided

1/4 cup green onions, thinly sliced and divided


Preheat grill. Drain pineapple (reserving 1 cup pineapple chunks and 1 cup juice); cut pepper and chicken into bite-size pieces. Cook rice following package instructions (using 1 cup pineapple juice in place of 1 cup water).

Thread chicken, reserved pineapple chunks, and peppers on skewers, alternating items. Brush skewers with half of the sauce, then place on grill; grill 4–6 minutes, turning often, or until grill-marked and chicken is 165°F. Brush with remaining half of sauce in last minute of cook time.

Slice onions; stir 2 tablespoons into rice. Serve skewers over rice; sprinkle with remaining green onions. Note: Skewer remaining pineapple and grill 1 minute on each side for a snack, or stir into rice with onions.
