These were incredible! I chose to marinate the chicken overnight (prepared after dinner the night before, so they marinated 24 hours) and they were phenomenal. Everyone really loved the sauce as...

didn't change a thing.

The marinade didn't add much pineapple flavor. I didn't like the grilled pineapple on the sandwich, it seemed really mushy to me. Just not for me. Will not make again.

Great recipe, very easy to prepare and cook. My girlfriend and I loved it, and I think it will easily make its way into the regular menu rotation at our place.

This was very good. I wasn't able to grill the chicken or pineapple so I think it will be even better grilled. Next time will grill for sure. I thought the dill/mayo sauce sounded kind-of weird...

After reading everyone's reviews on the marinade I decided to add a 1/4 tsp of ground ginger and 1/4 cup pear juice and let it marinade for 6 hours before grilling. Yum!
