Hawaiian chicken

Hawaiian chicken is one of my favorite dishes. I just love the flavors involved and how they mingle together. So I guess it was natural for me to experiment with adding Kilimanjaro’s Sunrise Ginger Syrup to one of my Hawaiian chicken dishes. The recipe I’ll be sharing in this article went over very well at a BBQ I hosted this past weekend and all my guests wanted to know what the “something extra” was they were tasting. I told them they’d have to read my article to find out! So here is my recipe for Grilled Hawaiian  Chicken with  Ginger Syrup.

Ingredients:
* 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
* Enough pineapple rings to cover the chicken breast (2 or 3 should work)

Marinade:
* 1/2 cup soy sauce
* 1/4 cup rice vinegar
* 1/4 cup canola oil
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 1/4 cup Sunrise Ginger Syrup
* 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Directions
1. Mix all marinade ingredients and add chicken. Marinate for 1 to 2 hours, no more.
2. Heat grill to medium-high.
3. Place chicken on grill and pineapple rings on chicken and grill until chicken is cooked through (about 5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the chicken).
