Grilled Hawaiian Turkey Kabobs


  • turkey breast cutlets- 1.5 lbs.
  • pineapple juice- 12 oz.
  • Gluten-free Bachan’s Japanese BBQ Sauce- ⅓ cup
  • brown sugar- ⅓ cup
  • rice wine vinegar- 2 Tbsp.
  • sesame oil- 2 Tbsp.
  • garlic minced- 5 cloves
  • garlic powder- ½  tsp.
  • red pepper flakes- ½  tsp.
  • black pepper- ½  tsp.
  • sea salt- ½  tsp.
  • ground ginger- ¼  tsp.
  • bell peppers (variety of red, orange, green or yellow)- 5-6
  • purple onion- 1 large
  • sweet onion- 1
  • Pineapple slices (optional for kabobs or having as a side)
  • cooked Jasmine rice- 3 cups 


  • Using a Ziploc freezer bag, line a bowl. Fill the freezer bag halfway with turkey cutlet pieces. While you’re making the marinade, set it aside.
  • Combine pineapple juice, coconut aminos, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, black pepper, sea salt, and ground ginger in a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined. This will make around 2 cups of marinade.
  • 3/4 cup of the marinade should be poured over the turkey. Seal the bag and massage the turkey to distribute the marinade evenly. Refrigerate a wrapped bag in the basin for 4 hours or up to 24 hours to marinate.
  • Cover and keep the rest of the marinade at room temperature until needed. (Save this portion for basting and serving as a dipping sauce for cooked kabobs and rice.)
  • Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes or more before assembling kabobs. (I only completed 20 minutes, which resulted in some scorched ends.) Cut the peppers and onions into slices that are roughly the same size as the turkey pieces (1.5-2″ pieces).
  • Remove the turkey from the refrigerator as well as the marinade. Remove the turkey marinade and toss it out. Thread peppers, onions, and marinated turkey chunks alternately on each skewer. Allow 1″ to 1.5″ at either end of the skewer to be free of food so you can easily hold the ends for spinning.
  • While your grill is heating up, make 3 cups of jasmine rice according to the package directions. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. To prevent kabobs from sticking to the grill, lightly oil the grates.
  • Cook the kabobs for 5 minutes on the grill. Brush (baste) the reserved marinade on one side, then turn and baste the other. 5 minutes on the grill. Baste the turkey, check the temperature, and continue grilling until it reaches 165 degrees on a meat thermometer. Our kabobs took about 20 minutes to cook, but the overall time will vary depending on the grill and the weather.
  • Transfer to a serving plate. Bring the remaining marinade from brushing to a boil on the heat before serving. Then serve with jasmine rice and kabobs.
