  1. Hi Kara. You’re Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs look really delicious! I love that the marinade has only 3 ingredients and pineapple juice is one of them – yum! Thanks for sharing and hope you’re having a sweet day!


  2. Hi Kara,
    I’m confused by your instructions. You said to set aside 3/4 cup of the pineapple juice after draining the can. So is the marinade made with the remaining 1/4 cup of pineapple juice? Or with the 3/4 cup that you have reserved?
