Sweet & Sour Grilled Chicken Tenders

We love to grill. It's probably the most used appliance (is a grill technically an appliance? I should be!) at our house during the hot summer months. We don't stop after the summer is gone. Nope, we grill all year long. Even when the snow is falling.

I've never been a big fan of fruit being cooked with meat but I really do enjoy the sweetness that pineapple adds to chicken, pork and shrimp and the marinade in this recipe can be used on any of them.

Sweet & Sour Grilled Chicken Tenders

1- 2.5 lb bag of frozen chicken tenders, thawed

Marinade & Sauce (make 2 separate batches):

1/2 c. crushed pineapple with juice
1/4 c. bottled sweet & sour sauce
1/4 c. bottled spicy sweet chili sauce
2 tbsp. water

Pour 1 batch of the marinade/sauce ingredients into a large Ziploc bag. Add chicken tenders and shake to coat the chicken with the marinade.

Refrigerate chicken for 2 hours or up to overnight. Grill chicken tenders for 4 minutes on each side or until the insides of the tenders are no longer pink. Discard leftover marinade that was in the bag.

Warm second batch of marinade/sauce and pour it over chicken before serving.

Delicious served over rice.
