Yield: 12 servings
In a shallow glass dish, mix the soy sauce, brown sugar, sherry, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic powder. Sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken prior to marinade. Stir the chicken pieces and pineapple into the marinade until well coated. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken and pineapple alternately onto the soaked skewers. Grill 15-20 min. Turn occasionally. Chicken juices will run clear when they are done.
