These chicken skewers are so quick to make and taste delicious with the bacon covering and grilled pineapple. These take minutes to prepare and grill up in no time.

Bacon-wrapped chicken skewers with pineapple
2 large boneless, skinless Foster Farms chicken breasts
1 pound bacon slices
1 large pineapple
1 cup BBQ sauce
Optional: 3 cups cooked brown rice
Peel and remove the core from the pineapple. Cut into one-inch cubes and set aside.
Cut the chicken into one-inch cubes. Slice the bacon in half to make two slices for every one slice.
Wrap the bacon tightly around the chicken and then thread the bacon-wrapped chicken pieces on the wooden skewers. Alternate with pineapple cubes and bacon-wrapped chicken.
Preheat your grill for 5 minutes. Grill the skewers until the bacon is browned and crispy and the chicken is completely cooked through with no pink remaining; about 4-5 minutes per side.
Remove from the grill and, if desired, serve over a bed of brown rice.
