Bacon Wrapped Chicken & Pineapple Skewers
What a delicious idea these Bacon Wrapped Chicken & Pineapple Skewers are using Pulo Cuisine marinade. For this recipe I specifically used the Pineapple Tamarind from Pulo which is my favorite of these marinades but I really enjoy the other two also. The Lemongrass Atsuete and Mango Chili marinades are great with so many recipes too. Recipes like Pulo Cashew Chicken or Quick Easy Asian Meatballs highlight the lovely flavors of the Lemongrass Atsuete. While Mango Chili Steakhouse Salad is perfect for the Mango Chili marinade. Come and enter our contest to win all three of their marinades and 2 of their cooking sauces.
I am a chicken and pineapple gal though. That is one of my faves on a pizza, it may be taboo to some, having that combination on a pizza, but I just love it. So I wanted to make a lovely summer dish using pineapple and chicken together. Wrapping the marinaded chicken in bacon furthermore upped the flavor in these gorgeous skewers. I could eat skewers all week long!! Such a fun and delicious summer treat.
I love that caramelized char that you get from the BBQ, making it rather scrumptious. The chicken was marinated for 2 hours in the Pineapple Tamarind and then the skewers were brushed with the marinade while grilling. Nothing can be easier for a completely simple sauce. Plus this sweet and tangy marinade creates some much added flavor to all your BBQing needs this summer. The marinade goes wicked on a steak too, don’t just keep this one to chicken.

Using fresh ingredients like a wonderful pineapple makes all the difference. Pineapple being one of the key crops of the Philipines therefore plays heavily into their cuisine.
