Chicken Skewers with Halloumi Cheese and Pineapple

Chicken Skewers with Halloumi Cheese and Pineapple. I wondered earlier if these would be okay, or if they'd be horrid because I made these up while I was ironing; as you do!
Chicken Skewers with Halloumi Cheese and Pineapple

Well, if I say so myself these turned out really good.

How to make:

2 Large Chicken Breast Fillets cut into chunks, then I made a marinade from the following ingredients.

1 Tablespoon of Cornflour
2 Tablespoons of Dark Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon of Vegetable Oil
1 Tablespoon of Sesame Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic - Finely Chopped
Half an inch cube of Ginger - Finely Grated
Pinch of Sugar
A 'Dollop' of Honey - which was probably about a Tablespoon

Marinate the chicken cubes in the above mixture for about 40 minutes.

Then I cut half a fresh pineapple into chunks along with some yellow pepper and red pepper (or whatever colour you happen to have, I'm sure will be fine).

Also, you will need some Halloumi cheese - cut into chunks. I used 4 skewers and threaded chicken, cheese, peppers alternatively.

Then I placed the skewers onto an electric grill (the type that closes down so it does both sides at one time) and cooked for about 15 minutes - whatever, just make sure the chicken is cooked through!

I served them with some long grain and wild rice and then drizzled with a little sweet chilli sauce.

PS: The pineapple cost me 50 wholesome pence from work; a BARGAIN or what?!


  1. Ooh, Jan that sounds loverly!! I have never had Halloumi cheese, but I am sure it is wonderful.

  2. I bet it will. I love halloumi cheese. Great with salads, pizza or what have you. I never tried it with pineapple but I'm sure it will work out for you. Halloumi has to be the most versitle cheese to work with. Have you ever tried to pan sear it? I did it once, worked out great.

  3. Hey, hey...this dish is Halloumitastic! It holds up well seared or grilled, nice skewers.

  4. Wow! Looks great. Congrats on all that caramalized yummy goodness!

  5. That looks really good! I like the use of the halloumi. I have been looking for more recipes that use it.

  6. You can't argue with a bargain like that. Those look and sound positively delicious Jan! I must give them a try sometime! Well done! You sure eat well in your house!

  7. AAhhhh, I love camping, but sadly the husband doesn't....
    The kebabs look delicious...LOVE "squeeki" cheese.
