Grilled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

Grilled Hawaiian BBQ Chicken with Pineapple Honey Chipotle Grillin’ Beans will be your new favorite Memorial Day, Labor Day and 4th of July meal!

A DELICIOUS GRILLED CHICKEN RECIPE

I have a twofer for y’all today. This could be your whole Memorial Day meal right here. It’s a unique take on the usual grilled BBQ chicken but it’s ridiculously easy. And because we’re grilling all of it – it makes for easy clean up and we’re keeping the dirty dishes to a minimum. The pineapple in the beans and the pineapple juice in the chicken marinade makes this the perfect powerhouse combination.

HONEY CHIPOTLE GRILLIN’ BEANS

Really, it is no different than adding something sweet like molasses or brown sugar. But in this case, the pineapple doesn’t add crazy-sweetness but it adds texture. And it’s that texture that really adds a whole new dimension of flavor I think you will really love! Combine all of that with the sweet and smoky flavor of grilled pineapple (like those of the BUSH’S Honey Chipotle Grillin’ Beans) and you are gonna elevate your Memorial Day BBQ to the next level!

Ingredients

For the grilled chicken:

For the Grillin' Beans

  • 2 (21.5 ounce) cans BUSH’S® Honey Chipotle Grillin’ Beans®
  • 1 sweet onion, finely diced
  • 20 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained well

Instructions

  • For the chicken: Drain 15 ounce can pineapple slices in pineapple juice (not heavy syrup) into a medium bowl, set aside sliced pineapple for later use.
  • Add 21 ounce bottle BBQ sauce, 2 teaspoons soy sauce, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/4 cup vegetable oil to pineapple juice and whisk together well to make the marinade.
  • Place 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into zip-top resealable bag. Pour HALF of the marinade into the bag. Seal up the bag and ensure the chicken is coated well with the marinade. Place into the refrigerator and marinate for at least an hour (overnight is best).
  • Cover the rest of the marinade with plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator for later.
  • For the beans: Spray a grill-safe, 10-inch skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Pour 2 (21.5 ounce) cans BUSH’S® Honey Chipotle Grillin’ Beans® into skillet.
  • Add in 1 sweet onion, finely diced and 20 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained well. Stir well.
  • Preheat grill to 350F degrees. Place beans on the grill and cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes, stirring once during cooking, until thickened and bubbly.
  • Meanwhile, remove chicken from bag (discarding the bag and marinade) and grill chicken for 6-8 minutes on each side until internal temperature reaches 165f degrees.
  • Carefully remove beans once finished cooking, then add pineapple slices to the grill for about 2-3 minutes on each side until slightly charred.
  • When chicken is finished cooking, brush with reserved marinade (the marinade that you covered with plastic wrap in the bowl – not the marinade from the bag with the chicken.)
  • Top with chopped cilantro or flat leaf parsley (optional) and serve with grilled pineapple slices and beans.

Notes

  • If you can’t find these beans, just go with what you can find and with a taste you enjoy. This recipe works with pretty much any of the canned baked beans.
