  • 8-10 skewer sticks
  • 2 ½ pounds chicken breast boneless, skinless, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • ½ cup green bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup red bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup yellow bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup Spanish onion cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Guava BBQ Sauce

  • 1 cup guava paste
  • 1 ½ cup original BBQ sauce
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar


  • Heat outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  • Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto skewers. Season chicken and vegetable skewers with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place chicken skewers on the grill to cook turning occasionally until charred, about 10-15 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan combine guava paste, barbecue sauce, garlic, lime juice, and vinegar. Bring to a slow simmer and stir until the guava paste has melted and the sauce is smooth, set aside.
  • When skewers are almost done, brush with guava barbecue sauce and grill until done.


  • If you can’t find guava paste at the store, you can use guava preserves.
  • You can use metal or wooden skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about an hour before grilling to keep them from burning in the grill.
  • Be sure to cook the chicken all the way through. The outside should be slightly charred and have a uniformed white color inside. If you have an instant-read thermometer they should register at 165F.
