Love me long time with these Chicken and Pineapple Skewers with Honey Chipotle Glaze.
Soooooooo have I ever told you that I love those Honey Chipotle Chicken Tenders at Chilli’s? Well I do. I love them so much I have dedicated part of my life coming up with a copycat recipe of the sauce that is put on top of them. I haven’t had much luck with creating a duplicate sauce that is similar to Chilli’s yet, but I think this glaze comes in as a good runner-up. Most of the food I come up with comes from me looking in my refrigerator and shelves to see what I have in-house so I won’t have to go to the grocery store. Luckily for me I had some chicken tenderloin, left over chipotle sauce, and some honey. I thought those flavors would work really well together by combining the spicy and sweet flavors.
The one thing I love about creating recipes is making them versatile and open for interpretation. You don’t have to make these skewers exactly like I made them. You can add veggies, change the chicken for shrimp, make the sauce spicier or whatever you want! That is the difference between cooking and baking. Cooking you can recreate and reconstruct a recipe how you want to your cooking preference. This recipe leaves room for a lot of interpretation. My favorite part of this recipe is the glaze. It is spicy with a kick of that pepper of the chipotle and the sweetness of the honey. When you combine that glaze with the charred sweetness of the pineapple and the juiciness of the chicken, it is fantastic! I know a lot of people out there that doesn’t really care too much about grilled fruit but trust me, with the chicken and this glaze you won’t be disappointed.
