This is the easiest recipe you will ever find on the internet (except perhaps a recipe for ice).
BBQ Chicken and Pineapple Kabobs
The easiest summer recipe you'll ever find. Literally three ingredients and VOILA!
- 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can sliced pineapple
- to taste Sweet Baby Ray's Hawaiian Style BBQ Sauce
- 12-15 skewers
If using wood skewers, soak them in water for 1 hour prior to using. (This prevents the wood from burning while cooking the kabobs.) You'll want to put them on the grill/stove wet. Cut the chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes. Cut the pineapple rings into quarters. Place the chicken and pineapple on the skewers, alternating between the two. Fill each skewer to your liking. Place the loaded skewers on the grill (I used my stove because I don't own a grill). Baste the skewers lightly with the BBQ sauce. If you put too much on too early the BBQ will char and it won't give you the sweet taste you're looking for. Brown each side of the kabobs, lightly basting with BBQ with each turn. When the chicken is cooked (160 F), remove the skewers to the plate, Here you can add all the sauce you want! Serve over rice or with other vegetables.

For being so easy, it was delicious. We ate it with Jasmine Rice (minute rice mind you, we are very simple people). It was easily one of my favorite things that I have ever made.
Grilled pineapple is the best thing to ever grace this earth, and BBQ chicken is definitely on the top list of top five best summer meals. This was more than a win in my book! It makes my mouth water just looking at it:
Aside from rice, we also had Garlic Parmesan Squash.
Garlic Parmesan Squash
This is a great summer recipe. It can be served with many different meats or entrees.
- 2 small/medium yellow squash
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 cups parmesan
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
Slice the squash thinly.Heat the oil and garlic in a medium skillet. Sautee the squash until tender. Sprinkle parmesan across the top, melting it just enough to make it stick. Serve warm.

Seriously. This was so easy, even I did it! And look how good it turned out!
This was by far the easiest dinner I have ever made. The best part is, it was tasty! A lot of super easy meals don't taste very good to me, but this was just right. It hit all the right spots. The squash was salty enough to counter the sweet kabobs, and the rice added that much needed starch.
The only thing I would do differently next time is I would make sure the pineapple juice didn't burn. It burned and made our house smell kind of gross. Watch out for that if you cook this on a stove like we did.
Overall, this was a winner.
