Memorial Day is coming up and there’s nothing like firing up the grill for a fun, backyard get together. Add this amazing Grilled Honey Chicken to your menu! I’ve made this recipe for years now. It’s so simple and delicious- I don’t even measure the ingredients anymore. Add some fresh veggies and voila, dinner is served!
I like to pound the chicken breasts thin and cut them in half. Not only do they cook faster on the grill, but they absorb more flavor. Besides, no one ever eats an entire chicken breast anyways.
Marinate the chicken separate from any veggies you’re also grilling. I got the original recipe from Allrecipes here– they did kabobs, which are fun, but just an extra several steps in my opinion. If you slice up a real pineapple, don’t marinate it at all. Instead, just set aside some of the marinade and brush it on a few times while cooking. It’ll give it an extra zing of flavor- the honey caramelizes and it all just tastes so good.
