  1. In a bowl, whisk together ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice, 2 Tbsp. olive oil, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil. Stir in 3/4 tsp. pepper and season with salt.

Soak 10 wooden skewer sticks in water for 1 hour.

Season reunion and bell pepper with salt and pepper, then thread red onion, bell pepper, pineapple and chicken onto skewers until all of the chicken has been used. Brush grill grates with olive oil then place skewers on grill. Grill 5 minutes then brush along tops with 1/4 cup of remaining marinade. Rotate to opposite side and brush remaining 1/4 cup of marinade on opposite side and allow to grill about 4 minutes or until chicken registers 165 degrees in the center on an instant read thermometer.
