Sweet and Sour Grilled Fruit Tenders

2 1/2 lbs. chicken tenders, fresh or thawed
48 large green seedless grapes
4 small mild onions, peeled & quartered
2 green bell peppers, cored & cut into 16 squares
4 plums, seeded & cut into quarters
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup apricot preserves
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 (8-oz.) can crushed pineapple in its own juice

Preheat grill to medium (if using gas grill, or until charcoal is covered with gray ash and is medium-hot.)

Meanwhile, thread thawed chicken tenderloins onto 8 long metal skewers alternately with grapes, onions, bell peppers and plums to make kabobs.

Combine ketchup, preserves, brown sugar and vinegar. Stir in 1/4 cup pineapple juice; reserve remaining crushed pineapple. Set aside 1/3 of sauce mixture to baste kabobs; stir reserved pineapple into remaining 2/3 of sauce to serve with cooked kabobs.

Place kabobs on lightly greased grill. Brush lightly with basting sauce. Grill for 5 minutes. Turn kabobs over, baste again and grill for an additional 5 to 10 minutes or until juices run clear. (Or insert instant-read thermometer in thickest part of chicken. Temperature should read 170F.) Discard leftover basting sauce.

Serve kabobs with reserved pineapple sauce. Refrigerate leftovers immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
