Sweet-And-Sour Sauce:


Sweet-And-Sour Sauce: In saucepan, heat vegetable oil over medium-low heat; cook garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes, vinegar, brown sugar and soy sauce; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in sesame oil. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Meanwhile, cut chicken breast into 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) cubes; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut red and green peppers, sweet onion and pineapple into 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) pieces.

Onto each of eight 12-inch (30 cm) soaked wooden or metal skewers, alternately thread chicken, red and green peppers, onion and pineapple. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place skewers on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning often, for 14 minutes.

Brush with half of the sauce; grill, turning once, for 1 minute.

Brush skewers with remaining sauce; grill, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 1 minute.
