This sweet, juicy, Gluten-Free Hawaiian Chicken is the perfect chicken to whip up on a weeknight and throw on the grill. It’s super healthy and flavorful, and you can enjoy it guilt free.
Chicken is a fabulous source of protein. It’s so versatile, can be paired with so many different flavors and ingredients, and you can totally transform this meat into almost anything.
There’s almost nothing more disappointing than looking up a recipe for an easy weeknight dinner, and realizing that the recipe says that you should’ve started marinating the chicken eight to ten hours ago.
Whenever that happens to me, I end up making the recipe anyway and getting disappointed that the flavor profile just isn’t really there.
That won’t be the problem with this recipe, I promise to you.
Marinate this for an hour (only an hour!). I promise you’ll find something to do with the sixty minutes this chicken is sitting in the fridge.
Check the mail, emails, pour yourself a glass of wine, catch up on that show sitting in your Netflix Queue…the hour will be up in no time.
You can also get it ready the night before and let it marinade over night.
I learned to make this recipe when I was in college on a tight budget.
It’s one of the few recipes for chicken that I was able to serve with countless different sides, making this a staple recipe then, and it’s continued to be a staple recipe through the years.
You can serve it with teriyaki rice, grilled pineapple, a light citrus salad, or next to mashed potatoes.
It’s such a versatile chicken dish, that you honestly can pair with almost anything.
Any grain, starch, or side dish will perfectly compliment this chicken.
Just like myself, you’ll find this chicken recipe sitting in your personal recipe box for years to come, pulling it out more times than you’d think.
