Polynesian Grilled Chicken

With the changing of the seasons, we also change our focus on food.  Grilling becomes the primary prep for nearly all dinners at our house.  Especially on the warm days.  Today was just one of those beautiful Colorado days.  So off to the grill we go!

Poly Grilled Chicken

Polynesian Grilled Chicken

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 1 inch chunks

1 pineapple, cored and prepped, cut into 1 inch chunks

1 c orange juice

3/4 t crushed red pepper flakes

1 T raw honey

Skewer the chicken and pineapple alternating the two.  Place in a flat plastic container to marinate in 1/2 c orange juice and 1/4 t crushed red pepper flakes. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining orange juice, red pepper flakes, and honey.

Heat the grill to hot and cook the skewered chicken and pineapple until almost done.  About 5 minutes before the chicken is done, brush with the orange juice and honey and allow to caramelize.  Remove from the grill and serve with a fresh herb salad or broccoli salad.  Delicious!!
