  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 24 boneless skinless chicken thighs about 4 pounds or 4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together juice, brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, broth, ginger and garlic until combined. Reserve 1-1/3 cups marinade for basting. Cover and refrigerate. Divide remaining marinade between two large resealable plastic bags. Add 12 chicken thighs to each; seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Drain and discard marinade from chicken. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  • Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink; baste occasionally with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes. Yield: 12 servings.


Serve chicken with fresh slices of pineapple (grilled is amazing) and sliced green onion, if desired.
