John vs. Dinner: Hawaiian BBQ

Ever since some friends made it recently, we have been dying for some Hawaiian-style barbecue chicken. Mmm. John was in charge of the chicken, and I am a sucker for roasted pineapple so I was in charge of that. Served with sticky rice. Yum-o!

All of the marinade recipes I looked up had fairly similar elements, but this one had the most authentic-sounding name. =) I found it here. Enjoy!

Kaanapali Alii Original Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Marinade  (Serves 4-6)
  • 4-6 Chicken breasts or chicken thighs
  • 1 1/2 Cup pineapple juice
  • 1 Small can crushed pineapple (including juice)
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 1 Fresh whole ginger root (peeled)
  • 1 Sweet Maui onion
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 Teaspoons pepper
Chop garlic, ginger, and onion.  In a medium bowl combine all ingredients except chickenStir well.  Separate one cup of the marinade into small pot.  Marinate chicken in remaining sauce for a half hour to one hour in the refrigerator.  Heat sauce in pot for 20 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.  Place chicken on grill and cook approximately 10 minutes on each side.  Serve chicken and pour small amount of sauce from pot onto chicken.

We didn't separate the extra sauce; we liked it as-is.
