    Just came across a recipe that I made years ago and forgot about. Its not a smoked recipe but you do it on the grill. I hope you enjoy it.


    Simmering Chicken Strawberry Kabobs

    "Very pretty and very fruity. The chicken cubes are marinated in pineapple and lemon juice with a hint of cinnamon, and then tucked onto skewers with chunks of pineapple and whole strawberries. As they grill, they 're basted with a yummy mixture of melted butter and sugar"

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 cup lemon juice
    2 (8 ounce) cans pineapple
    chunks, juice reserved
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
    1 cup butter, melted
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    24 large strawberries

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. In a shallow glass bowl combine lemon juice, juice from pineapple can, salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix together. Add cubed chicken and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
    2. Preheat grill to medium heat.
    3. In a small bowl combine the melted butter or margarine, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, brown sugar and nutmeg.
    4. Lightly oil grate. Using metal or soaked wooden skewers arrange chicken, pineapple chunks and strawberries on each stick (approximately 4 to 6 pieces of each item per skewer). Brush kabobs with butter or margarine mixture place on grill and cook, turning on all sides, until chicken is cooked through and strawberries are sizzling. Approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

    Sounds good Vlap. I wonder if the strawberries would hold up in the smoker? Hmmmm
