Grilled Pineapple & Jalapeno Chicken

So a few weeks ago I posted a photo of some wings I made on my Instagram and a bunch of people asked for the recipe. I was high. I’m not exactly sure how I made them but this is pretty damn close – if not better than the other ones.

The first thing you want to do is marinate your chicken. I went with drumsticks instead of wings because they were on sale. I soak mine in pickle juice. Soak them for at least 4 hours. You can use Italian dressing or some other whacky shit if you’re skeptical of the pickle juice.

While the chicken marinates grill your pineapple up. I used canned slices. Typically I would have used fresh pineapple but I’m lazy.

Time to build a sauce. Basically going to make a ketchup based white trash bbq sauce:

• 1/2 Cup Ketchup

•4 Chopped Grilled Pineapple Slices

• 1/8 Cup Chopped Pickled Jalapeños 

• 1/2 Tablespoon Maple Sizzurp

• Pinch of Crushed Red Pepper

• Pinch of Black Pepper

• 1/8 Cup Yellow Mustard

• 1/4 cup Pickled Jalapeño Juice (if you want a little more kick)

Mix well and refrigerate.

When your chicken has competed is marinating extravaganza, rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Season with a BBQ seasoning. I have a mason jar in my kitchen that I dump all my spices in when they get down to the end of the bottle…so I’m not really sure what’s in my seasoning.

Let the chicken rest for 5-10 minutes after grilling before tossing a few pieces around at a time in your chicken slather sauce.

Plate up and garnish with more grilled pineapple and chopped pickled jalapeños.

fuck yeah.
