Okay, here’s the deal – this looks DELISH! I love grillin’ in the summer – here on the southern coast, grilling season lasts from Late February to close to Thanksgiving! Spawn and I will grill 3 to 5 times a week. A WEEK!
So when this came across my feed, I’m all over it. The thing is – I think it can be made healthier without cutting into the taste. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to turn it into something that fits your plan and share!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
- ½ cup brown sugar (Splenda makes a brown sugar splenda blend)
- ½ cup soy sauce (Low sodium? Lite?)
- ¼ cup pineapple juice (I would use unsweetened)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 yellow red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 1 red onion, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 2 cups fresh pineapple cut into 1 inch cubes
- green onions, for garnish
- In a small saucepan, whisk together the brown sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice, garlic, pepper, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the water and cornstarch. Slowly whisk into the mixture.
- Bring to boil and boil about 1-3 minutes until the mixture just starts to thicken. Remove from heat and reserve ¼ cup of the sauce for later.
- Marinate the chicken in the sauce in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Thread the chicken on skewers along with the peppers, red onion, and pineapple.
- Grill for 8-10 minutes until the meat is done to desired liking. Remove from the grill and baste with reserved sauce. Garnish with green onions if desired.
As soon as they came off of the grill you slather some more of this thick and delicious Hawaiian teriyaki sauce on top and serve them right away. You guys. These were SO good!! Your tastebuds are going to be missing out if you don’t give these a try. Make sure that you put them on your list of delicious things to grill right away. You will NOT regret it!
We are having thunderstorms and that means the cats are typically under my bed. Not Spawn’s. Mine. Except this one is particularly noisy and while Widgette is under my bed, Lord Thunderbutt is curled up by my feet. Strange and unusual.
I’m looking at several recipes that look really good. I might post them here just so I have them…
Damn, he is one fine, lean gorgeous machine!
