I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chicken Breasts Grilled in Pineapple Bark

Last May I made salmon in pineapple bark and promised to try chicken the same way.  I finally got around to it.

3 boneless chicken breasts, split in half
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp soya sauce
1/4 cup orange juice
bark from 2 pineapples
kitchen twine

Start by splitting the breasts lengthwise in half to make two thinner pieces of breast meat.
Mix together the garlic, honey, soya and orange juice and place the chicken in to marinate for 2 hours.
Cut the bark off fresh pineapples.  I had some saved in the freezer : )

After the chicken has marinated place 1 piece between 2 pieces of bark and tie together.  You'll need a piece of string about 18-24 inches long for each bundle. Place the bundles back in the marinade until ready to grill.
Set the BBQ temperature to high.  Remove the bundles from the marinade and grill on indirect heat 15 minutes per side.
Remove to a plate to check for doneness. 
Hope you have one of these handy little testers.

And enjoy...
