My kids love eating food on a stick as much as I do- even the vegetables! This recipe is one of my favorites for a quick and easy chicken marinade. You just can't go wrong with grilled food.

Ingredients4 chicken breast ( cut into large bite-size pieces )
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic ( clove, finely minced )
1/2 teaspoon oregano ( dried )
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper ( freshly )
1 red onion ( Large, cut into large chunks )
1 green peppers ( Large, cut into large chunks )
1 pineapple ( Cut into large chunks (you can also use canned pineapple chunks) )
Combine vegetable oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a large ziploc bag. Place chicken in bag and make sure all pieces are covered. Put chicken in fridge and let marinate for at least 3 hours (I think that it tastes best when you let it marinate for 8-12 hours- I always try to make it first thing when I wake up in the morning for dinner that night).
If using wooden skewers, let your skewers soak in water for at 15-30 minutes to prevent burning. Skewer chicken, onions, peppers, and pineapple on your sticks until you run out of ingredients.
Turn on grill to medium heat. Place skewers on grill and cook for 7-8 minutes per side or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle (if using a meat thermometer, make sure it registers 165 degrees).
Remove from grill and serve!
