Pineapple Chicken

OK - so what do you do with the juice you drained from the can of pineapple rings? You use it to marinade your chicken.

Juice drained off of 20 oz can of pineapple rings
2lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 Tbs groud ginger
1 Tbs ground cinnamon
1 Tbs Bell's seasoning (or poultry seasoning)
1 tsp ground cloves
salt and pepper to taste

In a 1 gallon plastic bag (or bowl or whatever you use for marinading meat), mix the pineapple juice, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, seasoning, salt and pepper together until well blended. Then place your chicken in the marinade for as long as desired.

Grill you chicken and serve with the grilled pineapple slices, a nice salad and brown rice.

Grilled Pineapple

What's so special about this? Try it sometime and you'll see.

1 20oz can of pineapple slices or spears in their own juice, drained
1 lemon or lime

Place the pineapples in a bowl and squeeze the juice of the lemon or lime over them and let it marinate for a few minutes. Gently place the slices on your grill for a minute, turn them once and then remove and serve.

The juice from the lemon/lime will really make the flavor explode in your mouth and balance the sweetness of the pineapple.
