1 (8-oz.) can pineapple chunks in juice, drained
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 16 1-inch chunks

1.Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.
2.Place chicken in resealable plastic bag (or container); add soy sauce, oil, and ginger; seal bag and shake gently to mix. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to marinate.
3.Preheat gas or charcoal grill on medium heat.
4.Place a piece of chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat, so the skewer has two pieces of each ingredient. Repeat with seven remaining skewers. Discard marinade that contained chicken.
