Pineapple Chicken Skewers - FIXATE style!

21 Day Fix, Cookbook, FIXATE, pineapple chicken skewers recipe, Autumn Calabrese, 21 Day Fix Containers recipe, vanessamc246, the butterfly effect, change one thing change everything

The container equivalents in the photo are for BOTH the Pineapple Chicken Skewers AND the Quinoa Black Bean Salad. 

The individual container equivalents for each recipe are listed alongside the recipe's nutritional information. 

Autumn Calabrese, the creator of 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme, wrote a cookbook called FIXATE, scheduled to be released on July 14, ONLY to Team Beachbody! The greatest feature of this cookbook: It gives the container equivalents for each recipe!!!

While it launches in seven days, in the meantime, five preview recipes have been released!  I made two tonight, (a main course and a side dish) which made a full dinner for the whole family, AND everyone enjoyed them! I made the Pineapple Chicken Skewers and the Quinoa Black Bean Salad, both of which are gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, AND egg free. I refuse to make separate dinners for everyone, and it's tough to please everyone, but this dinner did!  This was a WIN for mom!

SERVES: 4 (2 skewers per person)
Prep Time: 20 min. Cooking Time: 10 min.
½ Green
½ Purple
1 Red

8 bamboo skewers
1 lb. raw chicken breast, boneless, skinless, cut into 16 1-inch pieces
¼ cup reduced-sodium tamari soy sauce, gluten-free
2 tsp. sesame oil
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 (8-oz.) canpineapple chunks in juice, drained (I used fresh pineapple)
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 16 1-inch chunks
½ large red onion, cut into 16 1-inch chunks

1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
2. Place chicken in resealable plastic bag (or container); add soy sauce, oil, and ginger; seal bag and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to marinate.
3. Preheat gas or charcoal grill on medium heat.
4. Place a piece of chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat, so the skewer has two pieces of each ingredient. Repeat with seven remaining skewers. Discard marinade that contained chicken.
5. Grill skewers on covered grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
6. Serve immediately.
