Grill up these Sweet Chili Pineapple Chicken Tenders for your next cookout. Serve over rice or along side of roasted vegetables, this chicken recipe is a winner.

I’m wrapping up #CookoutWeek with this simple and delicious grilled chicken recipe.  What was supposed to be a slow cooker recipe turned out to be the best grilled chicken we’ve had in awhile.  I originally wanted to use the marinade as a sauce for the chicken to slow cook in, and then serve it over steamed rice.  However, while I knew I had a bottle of the sweet chili sauce, I failed to check to see how MUCH was in the bottle.  There was not enough to use in a sauce for the chicken, so it became a part of this yummy marinade and I grilled the chicken and the pineapple rings.

The marinade for this recipe comes together in a couple of minutes with the chicken marinating for about 30 minutes to an hour.  That will give you plenty of time to get these Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Roasted Potatoes prepped and on the grill.
