Hawaiian Chicken

After discovering the blog Macaroni and Cheesecake, I found this recipe.  The marinade for this chicken is AWESOME :)  It had a teryaki type taste with the soy sauce, but a kick with the cayenne.  The whole meal she had on her plate looked yummy, so I copied and had some cilantro lime rice and some fruit.  The marinade was yummy on the rice as well.

Hawaiian Chicken 

1 cup crushed pineapple
1 tbsp. honey
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/8-1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1 tbsp. cilantro
2 large chicken breasts, cut in half or 4 smaller chicken breasts

In a medium sized bowl mix together pineapple and all other ingredients except the chicken until combined. Place chicken in the bowl to marinate and refrigerate until ready to use. We marinated for 1 hour, but if you have less time it would be just fine.

After marinating, place chicken & marinade in a large skillet, sprayed with cooking spray. Cook over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and marinade has reduced just slightly. Serve chicken topped with cooked marinade & garnish with cilantro.
