Hawaiian-Style Chicken Recipe

Grab a taste of Hawaii with this Hawaiian-style chicken recipe! The homemade marinade made with pineapple juice, coconut aminos, honey, and ketchup packs a ton of flavor. Allow for a bit of time for the thighs to marinate, then watch them turn into a sweet, caramelized protein dish.

Hawaiian-Style Chicken

Store-bought ketchup is often full of high-fructose corn syrup and other artificial ingredients; make your own with a homemade recipe and control the flavors, ingredients, and taste. The marinade also substitutes for other Paleo ingredients, like using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.

Have pineapple on hand? Throw some pineapple on the grill for about 3 minutes per side while you’re grilling up the chicken thighs. Use any leftover chicken in a salad or even in a breakfast scramble.
