Chicken and Pineapple Skewers

I just love grilled pineapple!  So, I knew this recipe was gonna be a good one (I got the recipe from one of my favorite Paleo/Primal cookbooks - "Make it Paleo")!!  I had signed up to bring a main dish to a Paleo Potluck and decided to make guinea pigs of those that attended the party.  :)  These little skewers got great reviews!  Yay!

Chicken and Pineapple Skewers
1 cup pineapple, diced
1/4 c olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 t. ground ginger
juice of 1 lemon
1t. salt
1T. cilantro, minced
3 chicken breasts
3 c. pineapple, cut into chunks
-Combine diced pineapple, olive oil, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, and salt in small bowl.  Puree mixture in food processor or blender. 
-Pour back into the small bowl and stir in mixed cilantro.  Set aside to use as a glaze during grilling.
-Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
-Skewer pieces of chicken and pineapple on metal or pre-soaked bamboo skewers.
-Grill skewers for 12-15 minutes, turning every 4-5 minutes.  Brush chicken with pineapple glaze periodically while grilling.
-Garnish skewers with chopped cilantro, serve!

Oops - forgot to snap a picture before we left.  This pic was taken with my phone.
