Grilling out during the summer is our favorite way to cook dinner. We probably grill out 3 to 4 nights a week. I am always needing to come up with new flavors and marinades. This Chili Pineapple Grilled Chicken is crazy good!

I have come to love sweet chili sauce, so I love to add it to marinades. It gives the meat some sweetness without being overly sweet. The pineapple juice made us feel like we were eating at the beach! LOVED the tropical flare to the chicken.

We grilled 2 pounds of chicken and ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. They are great on top of a salad or chopped up in a quesadilla. These are already on the menu again for this weekend.
