This Jerk Chicken recipe on Shish Kabobs is made with flavorful and delicious chicken marinated in jerk seasoning, layered with red onion, peppers, and pineapple for sweetness! The best part is the shish-kabobs are brushed with a pineapple honey glaze served over Cilantro Lime Brown Rice.
This recipe wasn’t planned, it was something that was created at the last minute and was so tasty I just had to share it with you all. Now that summer is here, it is the time for bringing out that grill and blessing it with some good grub. One of the dishes I love on the grill is shish-kabobs. The heat from the grill really brings out the flavor of the meat and veggies. But in case you can’t get these kabobs to your grill, you can buy a grill pan that you can use on your stove
These kabobs are made with red onion, peppers, zucchini, and pineapple. However, you can use an assortment of veggies that you want. I simply looked at what was in my fridge and used what I had before the veggies went bad. You can use mushrooms, potatoes, baby corn on the cob, or whatever you want! But don’t leave out the pineapple with this recipe. Trust me on that one.
I absolutely love Jerk Chicken. It is the most flavorful way to make chicken and it is extremely addicting to me. Although I must admit, I have not had true authentic Jamaican Jerk Chicken. I have no idea as to how this has not happened yet, but it will. I know Jerk Chicken has a tendency to be spicy but I used Braswell’s Jamaican Jerk Chicken seasoning was not spicy at all. The chicken came out to be very flavorful throughout the entire piece of chicken. It was insane!
If you are a fan of shish-kabobs and chicken, this Jerk Chicken recipe is absolutely perfect. Not only is it a great combination of sweet and savory flavors but these kabobs will work best on a bed of Cilantro Lime Brown Rice.
How to make Cilantro Lime Brown Rice
I know making rice is not always the easiest dish to make. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made overcooked or undercooked rice, which is why I stick to the microwavable kind. But the way I made rice in this recipe is perfect! I simply followed the steps that I outlined in my blog post, “ How to Make Perfect Rice”. Instead, I used water, and seasoned the rice with freshly squeezed lime juice and cilantro, which I love! The key to making perfect rice is cooking it until it’s ready to serve.
Now that you have your easy Jerk Chicken Kabobs created and know how to make the Cilantro Lime Brown Rice, to make this meal complete you’re just going to make a simple honey pineapple glaze to add a touch of sweetness to the kabobs.
This recipe is perfect for the summer or any time of the year. I know the ingredients may seem overwhelming, but it’s mostly spices that you may already have in your kitchen. Don’t allow the list of ingredients to overwhelm you because this recipe is totally worth it.
