This is a fantastic recipe..especially made on the grill. I'm concerned with the comment made by PJBAHR who said they saved the marinade and added pineapple tidbits and served on the side with the chicken. Please don't EVER reuse a marinade as a condiment or dipping sauce that raw chicken has been marinating in UNLESS you boil it first!...you run the risk of salmonella poisoning. (You should do this with any type of marinade no matter what kind of meat is used). Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I felt this made the chicken taste like it was bad; DH said it tasted "okay" but doesn't want it made again. Not for us but thanks for the recipe. Read More

Very tasty. Made a couple of changes to the 2nd round to suit my family's taste. Added 2 tablespoons sherry 1 tablespoon sesame oil 1/4 teaspoon fresh finely ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon fresh pressed garlic. With the additional seasonings this recipe is a power punch of flavor!!! Yum! Read More

Instead of BBQ'ing I marinated the chicken for about two hours then "fried" it in a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. I made a lot of extra marinade and warmed it up with some pineapple chunks. I served it over white rice and used the extra marinade for a dressing for the rice. This recipe was incredible and a huge hit at our dinner party. I can't wait to have it again! Read More

Create a dipping sauce from the following ingredients to accompany the grilled tenders: 1 cup of pineapple sauce (create by placing in blender) 1/4 cup plain yogurt 2 Tbsp. honey Blend all ingredients together and chill while tenders are grilling. Serve dipping sauce with tenders and sliced pineapple rings. Read More

I used skinless boneless chicken breasts and added a generous tsp. of ground ginger and 2 tsp. of garlic powder. I also grilled the chicken with the pineapple chunks. Wonderful wonderful chicken! I boiled the marinade and served it over plain white rice. The chicken tasted too good to have a sauce! Read More

This was so good and so easy to make. I used others' recommendations and added a little grated ginger to the marinade and also before serving thickened the marinade with some corn starch and served warm for a dipping sauce. Even my picky son who hates EVERYTHING but the plainest of foods used the sauce. I used 6 boneless breasts for 4 people and next time will use 8. They were cleaned up in a flash and all were asking for more. I cut the chicken in thick strips two or three depending on the size of the breast and then skewered them in an "s" fashion on the skewers. Next time I will marinate longer. I opened a can of pineapple rings and there was exactly 1 cup of juice in there. I served the pineapple and made some rice and had a great meal. Read More

I personally think you shouldn't rate a recipe unless you've made it exactly as written. I made this to the "T" and it was delicious! Will definitely make this again! Read More

I thought these were great. I threw some spices in the marinade while it simmered then marinated the chicken for about 3 hours. I skewered it with slices of green pepper onion and pineapple and grilled then served over rice pilaf. What a great healthy meal- and SO easy to clean up! I think heating the marinade ingredients really helps meld the flavors and influence the taste. Read More

Very good response from family. One can of pineapples yields the cup of juice you need and the pineapples on the skewer are just the right combo. I added garlic and ground ginger as others' suggested and marinated the chicken for 24 hours. They came out great! Thanks! Read More
