#29.3: Malibu chicken

Hands down the best chicken I have EVER had! I've made several recipes from Six Sisters and they are golden. They got this cooking thing DOWN! I managed to find this one on a post called 100 Healthy Dinner Recipes, so I'm just taking their word for it,  you should too.

I mean seriously go to the grocery store right now (even  especially if you have to leave work early). Amazingly enough, there is only 1 ingredient that I didn't have (molasses) so I mostly followed this recipe!

6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
12 slices deli ham (thin)
6 slices canned pineapple
6 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 cup pineapple juice (I just used the juice drained from my canned pineapple)
4 Tbl. unsalted butter, melted
2 Tbl. BBQ seasoning
1 Tbl. plain yellow mustard
1 Tbl. honey
1 Tbl. molasses
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp chili powder

Put a breast in a gallon zip-top bag and pound the thick end until the entire breast is uniform in thickness, then move to a platter or rimmed sheet pan.  Repeat with the remaining breasts.  Season both sides of each breast with the BBQ seasoning, cover and refrigerate at least an hour.

Combine the butter, pineapple juice, mustard, honey, molasses, Worcestershire sauce and chili powder a medium mixing bowl and whisk until smooth, then set aside.

Grill one side of each breast and each pineapple ring over direct heat until they are seared and have nice grill marks, about 2 minutes.  Flip each breast and ring, brush with the sauce, and cook another two minutes. Move the chicken to the indirect part of the grill and brush the top of each with the sauce.

Top each breast with two slices of ham and drizzle the ham with the sauce.

Put a slice of cheese then a pineapple ring on each breast and drizzle again with the sauce.

Continue cooking with the grill lid down until the internal temperature reaches 160ยบ (I don't own a meat thermometer because I'm not married and those are the types of things you register for) so I just guess about 10 minutes.

I can't even tell you how delicious this chicken is. Make it, I promise you won't regret it!


  1. That looks amazing!!! I nearly drooled right on my keyboard. Definitely going to have to try this one!

  2. Oh and I laughed out loud at your (so true) remark about the meat thermometer!
