Pineapple-Chicken Kabob Packets

I love kabobs, but not the whole process that goes into making them! :) I found this recipe and it seemed easy enough to try. They turned out awesome!! Super yummy and not as messy and time consuming that normal kabobs are...

Pineapple-Chicken Kabob Packets
(recipe found in Pillsbury Best Ever Chicken Recipes cookbook)

1/3 cup pineapple preserves
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2 inch cubes
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, stir together pineapple preserves, brown sugar, soy sauce and crushed red pepper. Cut 4 (24x12 inch) sheets of heavy duty foil. Divide chicken, bell peppers, pineapple chunks and pineapple preserves mixture among foil sheets. Sprinkle with salt. Bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2 inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.

Place packets on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 6 minutes. Using tongs, carefully turn packets over, taking care not to puncture foil. Cook 10-12 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center and vegetables are crisp tender.
