At our house, we love chicken. We eat it probably 4 nights of the week, if not more than that. I love chicken because it can be done so many ways. sweet, spicy, cheesy, grilled, fried, etc. Sometimes, though, you just need a new recipe.
So, when Philip offered to make dinner the other night, I was thrilled! We searched the internet for a delicious combination of sweet and spicy and found a marinade that we loved.
Recipe adapted from The Food Network
- 3/4 cup pineapple juice
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 packed cup light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flake
- 2-4 chicken breasts
- Kosher salt
- (optional) chunks of pineapple
Combine all ingredients and place in a bag or large glass dish to marinate for 3-4 hours.
Grill chicken until cooked through. If also using pineapple chunks, place pineapple on a piece of foil and place on the grill for the last 3-4 minutes before the chicken is done.
We served ours with *Loaded* baked potatoes, but it would be great with rice or mashed potatoes as well!
This definitely a repeat recipe, and the grilled pineapple really added a lot!
