Chicken Wing and Pineapple Skewers

Prep time
Cook time

A bit of sweet, a bit of salty, a whole lot of yum! These skewers are a must-make.


  • 16 chicken wings, tips removed and winglets cut in two at the joint
  • 4-8 pineapple chunks
  Pineapple glaze
  • 2 cups (500ml) pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup (60ml) soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) tomato sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed or 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp (5ml) ground ginger or 1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp (30ml) lemon juice or vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp (15ml) cornflour, dissolved in 3 Tbsp (45ml) water
  • Spring onion, chilli for serving


  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together, barring the cornstarch.
  2. Pour ¼ of the marinade over the wings and leave to marinate for 1 hour at least.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the rest of the mixed marinade in a small saucepan, simmer for 5 minutes, then add the dissolved cornstarch. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Thread the wings onto skewers - if you have large metal skewers 8 winglets should fit on.
  5. Finish the skewer off with a generous piece of pineapple.
  6. Pop the skewers onto the grill and grill, basting with the thickened marinade as it cooks.
  7. It should take about 15-20 minutes until the winglets are cooked through.
  8. Serve scattered with chopped spring onion, chilli and fresh coriander.
