Rum and Pineapple Chicken

I wanted to find a great recipe to submit to Joelen’s Culinary Adventures Taste of the Tropics blogging event for August. I saw this recipe online and tweaked it to what we like! The original recipe bakes the chicken in the marinade, but we decided it would be great grilled too. I also omitted several ingredients as well as adding in our own. My recipe is featured below!

4 boneless chicken breasts
1 oz Light Rum-I like Bacardi
1 oz lime juice
1 small can crushed pineapples in juice
s and p to taste
cayenne pepper just a dash or two

Combine all ingredients and marinade 4 hours to overnight. Discard marinade and grill boneless breasts on a medium heat grill for about 10-15 mins per side. Serve with fresh grilled corn with lime herb butter (see blog for recipe!) and sliced fresh veggies!
