Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, plus more for brushing
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or teriyaki sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/4-inch pieces
  • 1 8 -ounce can water chestnuts, drained and rinsed (optional)
  • 4 cups chopped pineapple (about 3/4 pineapple)
  • 1 small red or orange bell pepper, cut into chunks
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 small Hawaiian sweet rolls
Directions
  • Preheat the broiler. Soak 8 long wooden skewers in water, 15 minutes. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush lightly with vegetable oil.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar and honey in a medium bowl. Transfer half of the sauce to a separate bowl and set aside for dipping. Toss the chicken, water chestnuts, pineapple, bell pepper and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large bowl; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Thread onto the skewers, alternating the ingredients. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Brush the kebabs with some of the remaining sauce and broil until they start browning, about 4 minutes; flip, brush with more sauce and continue broiling until the chicken is golden and cooked through, about 3 more minutes. Serve with the reserved sauce and rolls.
