Asian BBQ Chicken with Pineapple Rice

This recipe is a nice change from your traditional BBQ Chicken. It's easy to prepare and paired with the Pineapple was fantastic!

Asian BBQ Chicken with Pineapple Rice
Serves 4 
WW PP=10 (Chicken plus 1 cup rice)
Cal 387, Fat 11g, Carbs 47.5g, Fiber 2g, Protein 28.7g

1/8 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (breasts work too)
chopped green onions

Combine all ingredients (except green onion) in a large zip lock baggie; add chicken. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 4 hours.

Pre- heat grill.
Remove chicken from bag and place on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill about 15 minutes or until done. Garnish with green onions, if desired. Enjoy!

Note-I like to make some extra marinade to baste the chicken with.

For the Pineapple Rice
Serves 4
1 cup pineapple tidbits in juice
1/4 tsp dried ginger
4 cups cooked rice (we used brown)
1/4 tsp salt
green onions, chopped

Add the pineapple, salt, and ground ginger to the hot cooked rice. Fluff the rice with a fork, mixing in the pineapple at the same time. Cover and let sit for a few minutes to warm up the pineapple.
Add the green onion to the rice and fluff again with a fork while mixing in the green onion. Enjoy!

  7. I found a recipe on this blog that I wanted to try really bad, I did not keep it and when I went back to get it, it ws gone. I don't remember the name of it, but it had two different kinds of Italian peppers, the last was optional and it had fresh basil. I was hoping you could repost it or email it to me. Thanks.
