Grilled chicken with a pineapple-laced barbecue sauce and a tropical Caesar salad combine in this easy-to-serve dinner.
A barbecue sauce with sugar can burn and blacken the food. The secret is to use the sauce as a glaze, painting the food during the last few minutes of cooking. I serve the remaining sauce on the side.
The chicken can be sauteed instead of grilled.
Brown the chicken about 2 minutes per side, lower the heat to medium low, spoon a little sauce on top, cover and cook 5 minutes.
