Spicy Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

Although this is far from grilling weather (at least here in chicagoland) I'm breaking out the grill anyway since we've only used it once this Spring. I figure it's about time to start using it more. I love Hawaiian Chicken and what I love about this recipe is that it's sweet and spicy. A perfect combo!

Spicy Hawaiian BBQ Chicken
Serves 4 (2 thighs each)
Cal 338, Carbs 15.5, Fat 9, Protein 45

8 chicken thighs (if you don't like dark meat breasts will work too)
1 cup pineapple juice
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp fresh ginger
1 tbsp. red pepper flakes

Combine all ingredients and pour half of the marinade over the chicken. Cover and marinate for one hour.

Save remaining marinade and place in fridge.

Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink; baste occasionally with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes. Enjoy!
