 [[Talking Points]]

Cook’s tip: To broil chicken, line a large baking sheet with foil. Lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange kabobs in a single layer on baking sheet. Broil, turning once or twice, 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (165°F).

Culinary: Choosing a Pineapple

Choose a plump pineapple with a sweet aroma and fresh-looking green leaves. Avoid pineapples that smell sour.

Nutrition: Pineapple

Pineapple is low in fat and sodium. It has no cholesterol and is an excellent source of vitamin C.
