What a great recipe to try out this summer. We love to grill and this will smell and taste great right off the heat. Everyone around here loves a good balsamic vinaigrette and this one sounds delicious!
These Grilled Balsamic Chicken Skewers look delicious! I love this salad dressing so this recipe looks like something that I would love to try! Perfect for summer!
These look amazing!! I'm always looking for different ideas for the grill, and this is going on the list! Do you think I could make my own balsamic glaze with coconut oil?
I heart summer, too and if only I could grill every single day during the hot months, I would. The chicken skewers look so delicious. Chicken and pineapple is a great combination. I like easy recipes like this.
Wow these look so delicious and fairly easy... probably something I could manage making, though they wouldn't look as good as yours! I haven't tried this particular flavour of dressing but it seems like a great one for marinating chicken! Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
Newmans own has to be my top favorite recipe brands. They have so many choices and they're all so good. I love to get the smaller bottles to take with me to work.
You come up with such awesome recipes! I'd love to try this, but I don't own a grill. I bet it's really healthy.
Thanks for the recipe. We love to bbq in the Summer. Will have to give this one a try, love skewers!
Those grilled chicken skewers came out fantastic! They look easy enough for me to do too. I've never tried grilling vegetables, except corn. I bet they tasted fantastic! I'll have to try this next time we bbq!
Nothing says summer like like grilled chicken skewers. I love having these as they work well with my low carb diet. I've eyed Newman's a few times but didn't purchase it. I may have to test it out now which the season is moving into full swing.
Tammilee, this is so funny! I seriously had the creamy balsamic from Newman's Own on my grilled chicken salad last night! We love this brand! I am going to give your skewers recipe a try!
We use their sauces and dressings all the time in our house! It's so great when a company is so charitably minded and also has great products!
Nothing says summer better than kabobs! My family would love these. I'm vegan but I'd be all over the pineapple and peppers. 🙂
Cathi, I am vegetarian and that is exactly what I did. My Husband loved the ones with the chicken and I made veggie ones for me. So good
These skewers look so delicious. I will have to make this for my family. I am sure they will love it.
This would be perfect for me to make for my BBQ that is coming up. I will have to test out the recipe this weekend. It looks delicious.
Wow those like they are grilled to perfection! Couscous was a great idea for a carb to go with the skewers!

I Love Paul Newman products. This looks like a wonderful recipe!
I love the idea of combining rice, pineapple chicken and the balsamic. That's a big yum!
This looks absolutely delicious- I try to marinate with dressing whenever I can. We always have a bottle of Newman's on hand for salads and cooking!
Well, I see one thing that will be on our 4th of July grilling menu. Those look great!
Those look fantastic! I love how the peppers got all charred and wonderful on the edges. Yum.
Such a great summer dish. I am looking forward to my next cooking of chicken
These look delicious! I want to try making skewers soon.
