Sweet and Spicy Chicken Kabobs

This is a great summer recipe! The sweetness with the spiciness is delicious.
You will need:

1/4 cup of canola oil
1/3 cup of honey
3 Tbs. of chili garlic sauce (you can find this in your oriental aisle of your grocery section)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup of low sodium soy sauce
8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 inch cubes
4 large red onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 pineapple, cored and cut into 2 inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 yellow bell pepper, cut inot 2 inch pieces
Wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for at least 1 hour

In a large bowl whisk together the oil, honey, chili garlic sauce, garlic and soy sauce. Reserve a small amount of the marinade for basting the kabobs later (about 1/4 cup). Place the chicken, onions and peppers in the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight. Preheat the grill to high heat. Drain the marinade from the chicken, peppers and onions. Skewer the chicken, peppers, onions and pineapple alternately. Spray the grill rack with nonstick grilling spray or just use some canola oil on a towel. Place the kabobs on the grill and grill for 6 to 7 minutes, basting once half way through grilling. Turn the kabob over and repeat the process. Hope you enjoy!!
