Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken – only 4 ingredients! SO good!!! We actually made it twice in one week. Pineapple juice, brown sugar, BBQ sauce and chicken. Such an easy weeknight meal.
It appears that I am on a pineapple juice kick this month. I’ve made several recipes with it and I just can’t stop! LOL!. This Pineapple BBQ Brown Sugar Chicken is one of the best so far. I am addicted to it! We made this chicken twice last week. I just can’t get enough of it! The best part about the recipe is that there are only 4 ingredients – that includes the chicken! OMG! YES!
This Pineapple BBQ Brown Sugar Chicken is so simple and tastes great! The chicken only needs to marinate for a few hours in the pineapple juice mixture otherwise it will turn to mush. I usually marinate my chicken overnight, but I don’t with this recipe. You only need a few hours tops.
We reserved a little of the marinade so we could brush it on the chicken right before we took it off the grill. YUM! It really bumped up the flavor. As I said, we loved this chicken. We always make the full recipe and eat the leftovers in a wrap or on top of a salad. The chicken is just as good, if not better, the next day! Give it a try this weekend. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Have you ever tried to bake the chicken instead of grilling it?
You can bake or pan sear the chicken if you prefer. Enjoy!
