  • 1
    Soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes to prevent burning. Spray grill rack with cooking spray. Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 2
    Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise to make 10 (about 1-inch) pieces. Cut onions into 20 (about 2-inch) pieces. In small bowl, mix corn syrup, rum, lemon juice, lime peel, lime juice and almond extract. Reserve 3 tablespoons.
  • 3
    On each skewer, alternately thread 2 chicken pieces, 2 onion pieces and 1 pineapple chunk. Brush kabobs with about half of the remaining sauce.
  • 4
    Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 7 to 10 minutes, turning and brushing with remaining sauce after 5 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Place kabobs on serving platter. Thread end of each skewer with cherry. Spoon reserved 3 tablespoons sauce evenly over kabobs; sprinkle with coconut.
