Xavier Tries Honey Pineapple Grilled Chicken


Summer grilling time is here!

There is nothing quite like a good marinate to really step your chicken up a notch.

Xavier learned this recipe from his mom on Memorial Day and just had to share it with ‘the four’ viewers!

Xavier’s Honey Pineapple Grilled Chicken


  • 1 cup Italian Dressing
  • 2 Tbsp pineapple juice
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  •  lbs boneless chicken tenders (or chicken of choice)


  • Mix ingredients and let chicken marinate for at least one hour, preferably overnight.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and grill until done, approximately 10 minutes.


You can also bake the chicken tenders at 400ºF for about 15 minutes or pan sear them about 3 minutes per side. The marinade can be used on any cut of chicken you prefer – tenders, breasts, thighs, or drumsticks. Adjust the cooking time to cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.
