Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

I am going to make this short and sweet today. I’m craving something sweet in the worst way possible, and staring at pictures of food is not helping. So instead I am going to go outside and read. But don’t worry, I am leaving you with this awesome grilled chicken recipe. It’s easy to make, a few simple (and one surprising) ingredient, but it tastes sooo good! The chicken ends up being very moist and tasty. And I swear leftovers the next day were even better! This recipe is great whether you are feeding three people or 23 people!

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken (Best Recipes Evar)

1 pound chicken breasts
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 TBSP fresh ginger, chopped
1/4 onion, sliced
4 TBSP melted butter
3 green onions, chopped

In a large ziplock bag, mix together the brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and onion.
Add the chicken and squish to mix.
Allow the chicken to marinate (in the fridge) for 4 hours.

Preheat your grill.
Melt the butter and chop the green onions and throw both in the bottom of a pyrex container.
Grill the chicken until done, and then place in the pyrex pan, turning to coat.
Repeat with remaining meat, until all your chicken is swimming in the buttery/oniony goodness.

    Yum!!! Love these flavors! We use a very similar marinade for wings but this is a healthier option. Will do!
