Grilled Tropical Chicken with Caramelized Pineapple

Transport your taste buds to a tropical paradise with this Grilled Tropical Chicken with Caramelized Pineapple. The rich, smoky flavors of marinated chicken thighs are beautifully complemented by the sweet, golden pineapple, creating a dish that's both exotic and comforting.

 Using the Unstick BBQ grilling sheet ensures that the delicate caramelization process is seamless, allowing you to achieve that perfect glaze every time. This recipe is ideal for those summer nights when you want to impress your guests with something truly special.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs fresh boneless skinless chicken thighs

Marinade:

  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chili flakes (optional for heat)
  • Wooden skewers soaking in water

Tip: If you don’t use wood chips in your BBQ, add 1 tsp liquid smoke to the marinade for a smoky flavor.

For the Chicken:

  1. In a bowl, mix all marinade ingredients, setting aside approximately 1/2 cup for basting.
  2. Coat the chicken thighs generously with the marinade. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 6-8 hours, ideally overnight for best flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the Unstick BBQ grilling sheet on the grill.
  4. Place the marinated chicken thighs on one side of the grilling sheet. Sear the chicken for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown with slight charring.
  5. Baste the chicken thighs with the reserved marinade each time you flip them. This step is crucial for achieving a beautiful caramelised glaze. The basting adds layers of flavor and helps the chicken develop that irresistible, glossy finish.
  6. Reduce the heat to 350°F and continue cooking, flipping every 6 minutes and basting generously each time, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove from the grill and let rest for 10 minutes.

For the Pineapple:

  1. Brush maple syrup generously onto both sides of the pineapple slices or spears.
  2. Once the chicken has seared on both sides, place the pineapple on the clean side of the grilling sheet.
  3. Grill the pineapple for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, flipping after a few minutes. Continue to baste the pineapple with maple syrup each time you flip it. Brush any excess syrup from the grilling sheet onto the pineapple.
  4. Remove from the grill once the pineapple is golden brown and the syrup has caramelized.

For sugar free version, omit the maple syrup and grill as per the directions above.

Serving Suggestion: 

Serve the succulent Hawaiian chicken thighs alongside the caramelized pineapple. The sweet and tangy pineapple perfectly complements the savory, smoky chicken, creating a mouth-watering tropical dinner. Enjoy this gourmet BBQ dish with a side of coconut rice or a fresh green salad. Happy grilling!
