Grilled Chicken Thighs with Pineapples Recipe

Grilled Chicken Thighs with Pineapples RecipeDuring the summertime we use our barbecue grill at least 3-4 times every week. It’s a great way for me to get dinner onto the table fast and without heating up my kitchen. We make all kinds of different meats, fish and veggies on our grill, with chicken being a go-to family favorite.

Grilled Chicken Thighs with Pineapples Recipe

10 pieces deboned chicken thighs
Fresh pineapple, sliced, for grilling


1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon oil
3 cubes frozen garlic
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin

Prepare Chicken

Combine all the ingredients for the marinade in a bowl and add chicken and pineapple slices. Place in a ziplock bag and squeeze out all the air. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Grill for only about four minutes on each side, just until the chicken is cooked through. (Check for doneness at the thickest part.) Grill the pineapple along with the chicken, just for about three minutes on each side.

Note: When taking marinated chicken on a trip, make sure it’s kept cool at all times. I like to put it in the freezer for about three hours before we leave so that it is really cold and can come to room temperature slowly.
