I was so excited when I heard about the new Fixate Cookbook by Autumn Calabrese.Fixate Cookbook Autumn is a celebrity fitness trainer; a busy mom and I just love her 21 Day Fix fitness program. I love the cookbook. It has over 101 mouthwatering recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The first recipe I made was Pineapple Chicken Skewers. They were delicious!Pineapple Chicken Skewers

Here are the ingredients:

1 pound of chicken breast cut into 16 one inch pieces
¼ cup reduced sodium tamari soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 (8oz can) pineapple chunks, drained
1 medium red pepper, cut into 16 one inch chunks
½ large red onion cut into 16 one inch chunks.

Place the chicken in a bowl and add the soy sauce, oil and ginger. Mix well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to marinate.

Preheat your grill. While the grill is heating place a piece of chicken, pineapple, pepper and onion onto a metal (or soaked bamboo) skewer. Repeat so that each skewer has two pieces of each ingredient. Discard the marinade that contained the chicken.

Ready for the grill.

Ready for the grill.

Grill the skewers for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked. Serve immediately.

The best thing about this recipe is that Autumn has suggestions as to how to use the leftovers up in a salad!
