Hawaiian Chicken Recipe

I found this delicious Hawaiian Chicken recipe on  I tried it out last week and I loved the marinade.  I changed two things about this recipe.  I didn't add as much garlic as it called for and I recommend starting the heat at a lower temperature.  Other than that it was great.  Only 247 calories per serving.  Try it and let me know what you think.


  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice 
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup 
  • 2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced peeled ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 
  • Cooking spray 
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
  • 2 cups hot cooked long-grain white rice 
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro 


  • 1. Combine first 5 ingredients. Reserve 1/4 cup marinade; place remaining marinade in a zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag; seal. Chill 4 hours.
  • 2. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade in bag. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; baste with 2 tablespoons reserved marinade. Cook 6 minutes. Turn chicken over; baste with 2 tablespoons reserved marinade. Cook 6 minutes.
  • 3. Combine rice, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cilantro.
