I feel like Utah summers are way too short. Yes, the stupid snow can be beautiful, but 9 months out of the year!! COME ON! I really am so ready for consistently good weather, but I know it can snow until June so I’m always anticipating more yucky weather popping up during the summer. I made polynesian or grilled Hawaiian chicken thighs last week just to encourage summer to stick around. TAKE THAT UTAH!

Grilled Hawaiian Chicken

K, this chicken is awesome. Love the flavor, love the simplicity, love those grill marks. You could do this in the oven, but why not pull out the grill? We chose to serve ours with a little of the reserved marinade (this never touched the chicken) and we ate it over coconut rice. HOWEVER, anyone and I do mean anyone, can make this chicken. To quote my 5 yr old, “easy peasy lemon squeezy”. So stinkin’ cute.

What Side Goes With Grilled Hawaiian Chicken?

Choose side dishes to complement the light, fruity flavor of the chicken without overwhelming it.

We always do a side of grilled corn because it’s amazing and I think corn on the cob should be eaten as often as possible! Some other suggestions are, broccoli, rice, Hawaiian bread, and fruit.

I would definitely use the chicken thighs over breasts, they are far more flavorful, and definitely take the time to let it marinate. You. Are. Welcome.
