I love how with just a few ingredients you can make an awesome marinade just like with this Grilled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken. I also love to use my grill as much as I can for summer meals.

This version is a bbq chicken with a Hawaiian flair. It uses bbq sauce along with pineapple juice and a few other ingredients. You also grill some pineapple slices along with it. Grilled pineapple is the bomb dot com!
