Tropical Island Chicken
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 45 min.
Great recipe! I used the marinade for wings. Baked them for about 45 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Will definitely make again.
I don't think we have a drip pan for our grill which means everything is just falling right onto the coals. Makes a mess but it tastes good enough to be worth it. We just use chicken legs too. It has a very unique taste but it's very good!
Great flavor! I used Tastefully Simple Onion Onion Seasoning in place of the dried minced onion and marinated the chicken for almost 24 hours. Baked it at 350 for an hour, basting the last 20 minutes. It was terrific! Will make again. And again!
I didn't try this yet, but I wanted to ask if you can use a drip pan with a gas grill? I have never tried that and I don't know if I should.
We loved this!! I did substitute pineapple juice for the water and used brown sugar. We lived in Hawaii for about a year when my kids were younger and my middle son (now 45) loves pineapple in everything. This chicken was great. I'm making it for the second time tonight. I am going to try it with beef and pork too. Thanks for the recipe.
Simple marinade. Very teriyaki like. End result was moist and delicious chicken.
This has gone into my favourites file.
I returned from a vacation in Maui about two weeks ago and had one Maui gold pineapple left that was a little too ripe. I put the pineapple in the food processor and used this instead of water. I also decided on brown sugar and fresh minced ginger instead of powder and fresh chopped onion. I marinated my masterpiece overnight and it was fantastic! I used a combo of chicken thighs and wings (fresh not frozen). I served chicken rice a roni and broccoli for sides. My family really liked the chicken and I will be grilling this up again this summer.
to: slocook805I am completely in agreement with you. water is innocuous in flavor, meaning there is no flavor - water may be used as a stretcher. pineapple juice is always associated with sweet&sour or Hawaiian flavor or Luau deliciousness. tomorrow night I'm making this recipe sans water subbing with pineapple juice.hey slocook question: do you use regular sugar/brown sugar/demerara sugar/cane syrup/molasses? believe it or not I even have cane syrup made from "dates" as well as Treacle as well as Lyle's Golden Syrup both from the UK and really only 1 tablespoon of whatever sugar?
This identical, with the exception of swapping out the water for pine apple juice, to the teriyaki recipe I grew up with having been raised in Hawaii. For decades it has been my go to recipe for a marinade for chicken, beef and pork whether for BBQ, oven or slow cooker and if I ate fish I wouldn't hesitate to use it on that. Once people try this for the first time it will be a keeper.
