Grilling Goodness

We are always wanting to try something different.  We get into ruts and seem to eat the same thing week after week.  We have really gotten into grilling the past few weeks and have a had a great time trying different dishes.  This one was really good, liked by all with no known complaints, lol. We started out by grilling ALL of the ingredients, the chicken was grilled until completely cooked, followed by adding the pineapples, then the peppers and onions.  The peppers and onions were just grilled enough to get some good grill lines going.

After grilling, all the items were cut into bite sized pieces.  I mixed up the pineapple juice from the canned pineapple with some soy sauce, brown sugar and a hint of garlic powder, cheyenne powder, crushed red and black pepper and sea salt to taste.  I made foil packets and placed equal amounts of food items in each packet.  I then divided up the liquid into the packets and tightly closed each one.  I threw them back on the grill for about 10 minutes to let the heat help marinate the packet contents. The chicken stayed moist and the veggies still had some crisp to them.

The results were a slightly tangy spicy with the salty sweet mix.  The grilled pineapple burst with flavor and made me feel like I got dessert with my deal!  It was yummy, fairly healthy and super easy to make.
