Spring is knocking right on our back door and for once hubby and I seem to be ready for it. Last week hubby cleaned up all the flowers beds cutting off the dead brush from the perennials, herbs and annuals. He cultivated the beds and blew all the leaves and debris down to the woods. He fertilized the beds and lawn and cut back the ivy from the stone wall. This week he is moving the dogs winter house from the garage out to the wood pile where it stays until next fall. He is setting up her spring and summer corner in the garage. He calls it “Poopy’s Palace.” It won’t be long before he is dragging out the patio set. Gosh how I love the change of seasons!! He is working up quite the appetite! These Chicken Bacon Pineapple Pepper Skewers are going to hit the spot just right!
Do you like to grill? We are grill masters around here! It does not matter what season it is. I will go out and shake the snow off the pit and fire it up. The only time I get knocked out of play is if my pit is iced shut. It has only happened a few times. Thank goodness! Succulent Grilled Chili Lime Shrimp, Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Wrapped in Bacon and Balsamic Vinegar Barbecue Pork Ribs are just a few of my favorite barbecue grill recipes. This Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken from Spend with Pennies is a fellow blogger family favorite. So easy and so delicious!
These amazing Chicken Bacon Pineapple Pepper Skewers are so easy to put together and they grill up in about fifteen minutes. The sauce pulls together quick because it starts with your favorite Kansas City style barbecue sauce. I will also include an easy chicken marinade because the last couple of times the chicken breasts I have purchased have not been as tender as in the past…must be some old birds.
