The kids are out of school in a matter of weeks and we have two subsequent days this week where it will be at least 80 degrees. You know what that means, right?! Summer is almost here! It’s a fun time of year and I always find myself craving those flavorful summer meals. I love everything about these BBQ Chicken Bacon Pineapple Kabobs- the tangy pineapple paired with the smoky bacon and tender chicken. The bacon gets crispy on the edges and tastes SO good. Slather it with your favorite BBQ sauce and dinner is served!

How do you cook BBQ chicken kabobs on the grill?

When making chicken kabobs, there are several things you can do to make them AMAZING! First, I like to lightly salt and pepper the uncooked chicken. You marinate these kabobs with some of the barbecue sauce to really get the flavors soaked in the chicken. Then, towards the end of the grilling process, you slather on even more barbecue sauce. If you put it all on initially, it will char more than you’d like, since barbecue sauce has a higher sugar content. A little char is delicious, but too much char just tastes burnt!
I’ve used wooden skewers before and they work well. Soaking them in water for an hour prior to loading them up with meat is helpful to prevent burning and splintering. I prefer to use stainless steel skewers now though as they’re easier to thread and remove the cooked meat.
Bacon is incredible in this dish, but you do need to pre-cook it a bit. I like to cut it into 2″ long pieces and place the pieces on a paper towel lined plate. Microwave the bacon for several minutes. The time will largely depend on how thick your bacon is, but I find 3-4 minutes is great. Then proceed with the recipe!
I like to use fresh pineapple for these BBQ chicken kabobs, but you can use canned pineapple chunks or even slices if that’s all you have. Larger pieces of pineapple hold up better. Smaller pieces will split and fall apart once they’re skewered. I find that the stainless steel kabobs work better with pineapple.
As you’re threading your kabobs with the chicken, bacon and pineapple, make sure that you don’t pack the ingredients on there too tightly. This is actually the case with most kabobs- you need to leave a bit of “breathing” room in between the pieces so that the heat of the grill can adequately cook each piece of food. This is especially true in this recipe, where you’re cooking bacon and chicken!
BBQ Chicken Bacon Pineapple Kabobs recipe is an incredible twist on a classic. Tender chicken grilled with pineapple, bacon & slathered with your favorite BBQ sauce.

BBQ Chicken Kabobs with Bacon and Pineapple

  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2″ – 2″ chunks, salted lightly
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 lb bacon, cut into 1″- 1 1/2″ segments
  • fresh pineapple cut into 2″ chunks
  1. Combine chicken pieces with 1 cup of the BBQ sauce and marinate for 2-3 hours. (This step can be omitted if you’re pressed for time!)
  2. Microwave bacon for 2-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of your bacon and how crispy you like it. Let bacon cool slightly.
  3. Using kabob skewers, thread chicken, bacon pieces and pineapple in a pattern. The larger pieces of pineapple are easier to skewer. Fold thin bacon pieces over in half and arrange next to the chicken, being careful to not put the bacon pieces too close to anything else, so that they have space to heat up properly to cook.
  4. Grill kabobs until chicken reaches 155-160 degrees F. Slather remaining 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce on kabobs when they’re nearly cooked. Cover loosely with foil and let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
