Servings 4 servings


  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs (cut into 1-inch pieces)
  • 12 wooden skewers

Cilantro Lime Slaw

  • 3 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • In a small saucepan, combine pineapple juice, 1 tbsp vinegar, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, hot sauce, honey, and minced garlic. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. The mixture should reduce and thicken slightly. Set aside 2 tbsp of the sauce.
  • Preheat grill on medium high. Alternatively, you can cook the chicken under the broiler. Pass the chicken pieces through the skewers (about 3-4 pieces per skewer). Place skewers in a baking dish and brush with sauce. Grill 4-5 minutes on each side until done. Remove chicken from grill and drizzle with the sauce that was set aside.
  • To make the slaw, combine cabbage and cilantro in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, vinegar, sugar, and salt. Drizzle lime/oil mixture over cabbage and toss to combine.
