Today we're going Tropical! Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures said: "Bust out your beach gear!  We're sharing tropical recipes with pineapple, coconut, mango, dragon fruit.  Anything that screams tropical is on the menu today."

This is a deliciously flavored chicken recipe - it paired perfectly with some Hawaiian Fried Rice for a delicious tropical meal! Since we can't travel anywhere on a plane right now, traveling via our food is the next best thing. My daughter has been talking about visiting Hawaii for the past few months, so this was a fun way to talk about Hawaii and different flavor profiles. We've had this discussion about pizza before too - what makes Hawaiian pizza "Hawaiian" - it's all about the pineapple!

This is a deliciously marinated chicken recipe - perfect for grilling season. We served this up with some really tasty Hawaiian fried rice and it was the perfect end to the day - until we can actually enjoy some grilled chicken in Hawaii this will have to do!

  • Hawaiian Chicken adapted from Damn Delicious

    1/4 cup pineapple juice
    1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    2 TBS ketchup
    1 TBS minced garlic (jarred)
    1 TBS ginger paste
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 TBS cilantro paste

    1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a ziploc bag or sealable container: soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, ketchup, minced garlic, ginger paste, sesame oil, and cilantro paste. Blend. 
    2. Add chicken, turning or shaking to coat. Refrigerate at least a few hours, preferably overnight.
    3. When ready to grill, oil and heat a griddler or your grill. Grill chicken until cooked all the way through. Allow to rest a few minutes before slicing and serving!
