This is a fantastic recipe..especially made on the grill. I'm concerned with the comment made by PJBAHR who said they saved the marinade and added pineapple tidbits and served on the side with the chicken. Please don't EVER reuse a marinade as a condiment or dipping sauce that raw chicken has been marinating in UNLESS you boil it first!...you run the risk of salmonella poisoning. (You should do this with any type of marinade, no matter what kind of meat is used).
Thanks for the great recipe!
I felt this made the chicken taste like it was bad; DH said it tasted "okay" but doesn't want it made again. Not for us, but thanks for the recipe.
Very tasty. Made a couple of changes to the 2nd round to suit my family's taste. Added 2 tablespoons sherry, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon fresh finely ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon fresh pressed garlic. With the additional seasonings, this recipe is a power punch of flavor!!! Yum!
Instead of BBQ'ing, I marinated the chicken for about two hours, then "fried" it in a 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil. I made a lot of extra marinade and warmed it up with some pineapple chunks. I served it over white rice, and used the extra marinade for a dressing for the rice. This recipe was incredible, and a huge hit at our dinner party. I can't wait to have it again!
Create a dipping sauce from the following ingredients to accompany the grilled tenders:
1 cup of pineapple sauce (create by placing in blender)
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 Tbsp. honey
Blend all ingredients together and chill while tenders are grilling. Serve dipping sauce with tenders and sliced pineapple rings.
I used skinless boneless chicken breasts and added a generous tsp. of ground ginger and 2 tsp. of garlic powder. I also grilled the chicken with the pineapple chunks. Wonderful, wonderful chicken! I boiled the marinade and served it over plain white rice. The chicken tasted too good to have a sauce!
This was so good and so easy to make. I used others' recommendations and added a little grated ginger to the marinade and also before serving, thickened the marinade with some corn starch and served warm for a dipping sauce. Even my picky son who hates EVERYTHING but the plainest of foods used the sauce. I used 6 boneless breasts for 4 people and next time will use 8. They were cleaned up in a flash and all were asking for more. I cut the chicken in thick strips, two or three, depending on the size of the breast, and then skewered them in an "s" fashion on the skewers. Next time, I will marinate longer. I opened a can of pineapple rings and there was exactly 1 cup of juice in there. I served the pineapple and made some rice and had a great meal.
Loved this one! Took advice from others and marinated over night and added 1 tsp ginger and 2 tsp garlic. Chicken was tender and juicy! I'll be making this one again soon.
