Pineapple Citrus Marinade for Chicken

I’ve been looking for a different way to grill up some chicken this week. So I whipped up a Pineapple citrus marinade, that definitely brings a mouthful of flavor that is going to become a favorite for grilling up this summer!

If you’re a frequenter of the blog, it should be no surprise that this time of the year I enjoy grilling! It keeps the heat out of the house and It’s super easy to cook a lot of food. Which makes it really easy for me to get my lunches ready for the week.

If you’re trying to save a few bucks during the week, this is a great way to do it too. Schedule this recipe during sales at the store, and this can EASILY feed a person for lunch every day for a week under $20 bucks!

Thankfully, I’m not one that gets too bored of eating the same type of protein, it just needs to be flavored differently week to week. That’s why this Pineapple citrus marinade does the trick for me this week!

It’s got a hint¬†of a Hawaiian vibe to it, with the sweet pineapple juice flavor, but the you get hit with a little savory and spice from the peppers and smokiness from the grill.

Everything marries together and its a very versatile marinade recipe. It will go great on its own, or as chicken tacos, or even a chicken rice bowl.

    This is refreshingly different from all the other meat marinade recipes I’m coming across at the moment; I would love to taste it!

  • I’m a big fan of pineapple and hot peppers mix! It’s always a winning combination. Not work on the grilling by the way. Yum!

  • This looks like a nice and sweet way to enjoy some juicy chicken on the grill this summer. Perfect for all the backyard BBQ parties we will be having.

    Derek is the man! You got me with the cayenne pepper but I’ll add two more to it. This marinade looks great and I should try it soon, thanks Derek!

  • Kavita

    Oh my gosh, yes, this looks like a perfect refreshing zingy marinade and not like any I’ve come across before. Bookmarking!

  • NICOLE SHILLINGS

    Oooh! This sounds amazing! My mom used to make a similar marinade for chicken when I was a kid. It was always my favorite. I’ll be trying this out!

  • This looks simply AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Fantastic combination of acids in this recipe! I can just imagine all the beautiful notes in it, fabulous!

  • Danielle Cushing

    I LOVE pineapple – what a creative way to use it!

  • Lynne Curry

    Sweet and spicy and grilled. My 3 favorite things. I bet the pineapple marinade makes the chicken very tender, too.

  • What a perfect sour/sweet/spicy blend! And I agree about making a batch of food for later lunches – far and away the easiest way to do it!

  • Sarah Anne Stubbs

    Any sort of grilled chicken is great in my book! Gonna try this with chicken thighs!
