Grilled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

Grilled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken is quick and easy and the flavor is amazing!  Served over grilled pineapple this is sure to be a hit! 


Yessssss! It’s officially grilling season and I could not possibly be more excited about it, grilling is my jam. This is a dish I make all the time at my house – it’s so dang easy, has amazing flavor, and HELLO there is grilled pineapple involved! No brainer right??

The sauce is used as both a marinade and a topping and I always want to lick the plate clean because the flavor is so good. The great thing is that you can use your favorite bbq sauce as the sauce for the base – homemade or store-bought, whatever you love the most!
