All you do:

Soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes.
In a food processor, process bacon, chili powder, brown sugar, salt, garlic powder and pepper until a smooth paste forms. In a large bowl, toss bacon mixture with chicken pieces; stir to coat. Thread coated chicken, zucchini, peppers and pineapple on skewers.
