    Made it more kid friendly. To take it a step further I substituted the cup of pinapple juice for a can of diced pinapple. I used the juice/syrup form the can for the marinade and the diced pineapple alternated with the chicken. Just a little extra yummyness for the little ones and a great way to get them to eat more variety. I also added some thin capsicum strips as the yellow and red contrast makes them look look really fun and tasty for the kids.  -  02 Nov 2008


    This is a fantastic recipe..especially made on the grill. I'm concerned with the comment made by PJBAHR who said they saved the marinade and added pineapple tidbits and served on the side with the chicken. Please don't EVER reuse a marinade as a condiment or dipping sauce that raw chicken has been marinating in UNLESS you boil it first!...you run the risk of salmonella poisoning. (You should do this with any type of marinade, no matter what kind of meat is used). Thanks for the great recipe!  -  01 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very tasty. Made a couple of changes to the 2nd round to suit my family's taste. Added 2 tablespoons sherry, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, 1/4 teaspoon fresh finely ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon fresh pressed garlic. With the additional seasonings, this recipe is a power punch of flavor!!! Yum!  -  16 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
