Hawaiian Chicken Thighs

Hawaiian Chicken Thighs

I found this Cooking Light recipe on MyRecipes that looked delicious and I just happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I let the chicken thighs marinate all day long then cooked them in my grill pan. The chicken turned out moist, flavorful, and delicious – my whole family loved it. I served the chicken with some tasty green beans (recipe to post tomorrow) and Garlic Rice with cilantro. It was a delicious and healthy meal and we all cleaned our plates.

How to Make Hawaiian Chicken Thighs

Combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, ketchup, ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper flakes together in a zip lock bag. Mix well. Add the boneless skinless chicken thighs to the marinade; seal and place into the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking. Place the chicken on a plate then season both sides with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Heat a grill pan coated in cooking spray over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken thighs and cook for 4-5 minutes; flip then cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle the green onions over the cooked chicken and serve. Enjoy.

  1. Do you think this marinade would still work ok for chicken thighs with the bone in? We have some skinless, bone-in chicken thighs in the freezer and this recipe sounds delicious!

  2. Too funny, I just saw this recipe recently and put it in my “soon to try” folder 🙂 Sounded yummy then and even more so now!!

  3. You used my favorite chicken part in a delightful sounding recipe. I’d have contemplated adding pineapple to the pan while cooking!
