  • Chinese Chicken

    Chicken pieces – breast, wings and ribs work best

    For each 4 pieces of chicken use:

    – 1 tsp Soy Sauce

    – 1/4 cup Pineapple juice

    – Tbsp Chopped parsley

    – Small grated onion


    Depending on the amount of chicken, adjust recipe. Make sure you have enough sauce to completely submerge the chicken in a zip lock bag.

    Place chicken on a well oiled grill over low coals and use marinade to brush often during cooking. A good rule of thumb is that a cooked chicken is one that has been cooking on the grill at 5 minute intervals and flipped and basted four times. Always check for doneness as cooking times may vary with each grill.
