Tropical Chicken with Pineapple Skewers

By 10:59 AM , ,

Last night I made a dinner adapted from a recipe I found on allrecipes.com. It ended up being wonderful! Very light, a tiny bit sweet - the brown sugar and pineapple juice provide crunchy carmelization on the outside - but not too sweet, because it is balanced by the soy sauce. I served the chicken and pineapple skewers with jasmine rice.

1 - 1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast tenders
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1 20oz can chunk pineapple in pineapple juice
skewers (I prefer metal)

Combine the juice from the canned pineapple, soy sauce and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat once sugar is dissolved and the mixture is about to boil.

Place the chicken breast tenders in a bowl and pour the mixture of it. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Using 4 or 5 skewers for the chunks of pineapple (push pretty tightly together).

Grill on low heat. Baste chicken repeatedly.

Hubby (King of the Grill) used a gas grill, but a grill pan would work just as well.
