Pineapple Glazed Chicken

Grilled Pineapple Chicken

Grilled Pineapple Chicken

I found myself with an open can of crushed pineapple and I didn’t want to waste it. I have a number of baked dishes where I could have used it but I decided to go with a savory dish instead. I was getting together with friends to grill some chicken and ribs so I ended up making a glaze for the chicken with the pineapple.  We marinaded the chicken in about half of the sauce and brushed the rest on while it was cooking. It added just the right amount of sweetness without overpowering the meat.  Here is the recipe.

 

 

 

Pineapple Glaze

2 T. oil

 1 medium onion, minced

1 can ( 20  oz.)  crushed pineapple, undrained

1/2 c. apple cider vinegar

1/2 c. sugar

1 T. hot sauce

2 t. minced garlic

1 t. ginger

1 t. sesame oil

1 t. salt, or to taste

1/2 t. white pepper

In skillet saute onion in oil until golden brown. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until thickened, about 10-15  minutes. Adjust seasonings. Use as a sauce or glaze for meats.
