Do you love fresh pineapple?
Do you love fresh pineapple grilled WITH your chicken?
Do you have one of these?
You use it to get this
and leave behind this
If you don't have one - get one
Because then you can make this
But DON'T put fresh pineapple juice in the marinade - it gives the surface of the meat an unappetizing mushy texture. I never knew this until we found out by mistake last weekend. (good thing I wasn't under the impression that I knew everything) A friend told me the same thing happened to her when she cooked kabobs on the grill with the chicken next to the pineapple on a skewer. So keep the pineapple and the chicken separate while cooking and put them together on your plate!
Probably everyone, except for me, already knows this - but I wanted to share - just in case.
