 Perfect Marinade for Grilled Chicken...

Perfect Marinade for Grilled Chicken


  • 1 6 ounce can pineapple juice
  • 2 Tbs. chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. chopped garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine the above together.
I use my food processor to combine everything, but it's not necessary. 

Place the chicken in a plastic container and pour half of the marinade over your chicken; place the remaining marinade in a plastic container.   
Let the chicken marinade in the refrigerator for at least two hours or all day.  
I usually like to prepare my chicken and marinade early in the morning.  

Place the chicken on your hot grill and cook until the juices run clear. 
Remove the chicken from the grill and place on a clean platter. 
Cover the chicken with aluminum foil and let rest for at least ten minutes before slicing.  

While the chicken is resting, take the reserved marinade and place in a small saucepan.  
Bring to a boil on top of your stove.  
Once the marinade has reduced and thickened nicely, remove from heat and set aside.

You now have a delicious sauce to drizzle over your 

grilled chicken...

Coming tomorrow to the BLOG...what to do with leftover chicken...

Because I always make too much!

Enjoy your day!
