Pina Colada Chicken

Take your taste buds on an island retreat with an easy grilled chicken favorite, tropical Pina Colada Chicken. Our quick-to-fix pina colada marinade adds tangy excitement to ordinary grilled chicken breasts.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup light or dark rum
  • 1/4 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
  1. Place chicken in a shallow glass baking dish. Place remaining ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly to make piña colada marinade. Cover, refrigerate and reserve 1/2 cup marinade until ready to use for basting.
     
  2. Pour remaining marinade over chicken, cover, and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours, or overnight.
     
  3. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill chicken 3 to 4 minutes per side, basting with reserved 1/2 cup piña colada marinade and turning chicken frequently, until no pink remains and juices run clear (see Note).
     
Note

Frequent basting gives this chicken even more tropical flavor, but be sure not to baste it during the last 4 minutes of cooking, so the cooked chicken doesn’t come in contact with marinade used on raw chicken.

What could I use in the place of rum?

Any ideas for what you could use in the place of Rum?

You can use 2t. rum extract and 1/4c of water or apple juice.

I think step 1 is in the wrong place. Don't think I want to pre-heat the grill and then marinate the chicken for 3 to 4 hours but the recipe sounds delicious.

sounds great, i love anything with coconut milk and pineapples i will try it tonight

I guess I can't read anymore. Step 1 tells how to make the marinade 2 tells how long to marinate 3 says to preheat the grill and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side. Nothing is out of order. There is NO coconut milk or milk of any kind. I think people just want to see their words in print and don't think about what they're saying.

This Recipe sounds really great I can't wait to try it!!!
