Buffalo Pineapple Chicken
These Buffalo Pineapple Grilled Chicken tenders are a new favorite. They are super easy to make and they taste fantastic! I like spicy food, but I don’t want it to burn my mouth. This chicken had just enough kick to it. You taste more of the buffalo flavor than the heat. I think the pineapple juice mellowed out the buffalo sauce.
These Buffalo Pineapple Grilled Chicken tenders only take a minute to prep and then they can hang out for a few hours in the fridge. I wouldn’t let them sit too long in the pineapple juice – chicken can get mushy if you let it marinate in lots of fruit juice too long.
We grilled the chicken, but you can certainly cook in the a skillet if you don’t grill. It will taste fantastic either way. We loved the flavor combination of buffalo sauce and pineapple juice. A little spicy, a little sweet and a whole lotta delicious!
