#freezerlovefriday does grilling season - pineapple bbq chicken

Can you believe it is MARCH? This year has flown by. With warmer temperature comes my favorite time of the year, grilling season! We use a charcoal grill, mainly because we prefer the earthy taste it delivers. In Arizona you can pretty much grill any time of year, but there is something about the evening hours in the spring time. It makes you want to sit outside, watch your husband grill, your kid play and sip on a nice glass of Chardonnay! 

I am here to tell you that you can freeze marinated chicken. Now you may be wondering what the benefit of freezing the marinated chicken is, since it doesn't take too long to throw together a few ingredients. The longer the chicken has to marinate, the more the flavor will soak in. Also, it is super easy to know that you have 3-4 bags of marinated chicken in your freezer, ready to go for the next time you feel like grilling! I will typically buy two large chicken breast packets at Costco and make 2 of each of my favorite marinades. This month I will give you 4 marinades, which means you could potentially have 8 meals in your freezer!! 

Pineapple BBQ Marinade
Yields 4-6 Chicken Breasts/Thighs


½ cup pineapple juice
1 cup sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce
¼cup brown sugar
3 slices of pineapple cut up
½ tsp of garlic powder
½ tap of onion powder
4 chicken breast or 4 chicken thighs


Mix all of the ingredients together. 
Trim excess fat off of the chicken breasts and place in a large baggie. 
Let sit in refrigerator for one day and freeze laying flat for up to 3 months!

Laying it flat to freeze will save on room
and ensure the marinade fully covers the chicken! 

Happy grilling,
