Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • ¼ cup of Bragg’s liquid aminos*
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • Approx 1 tsp cornstarch (optional)
  • Pineapple, sliced (optional)
Instructions
  1. Mix all marinade ingredients (liquid aminos through sriracha).
  2. Optional: If you want to thicken the marinade a bit (we chose to do so!), pour the marinade into a small sauce pan. Heat the marinade over medium heat until bubbles slightly and whisk in cornstarch until it thickens.
  3. Pour marinde over chicken, cover and refrigerate until ready to cook (2-3 hours**).
  4. Grill chicken to your desired tenderness.
  5. At the same time, place your sliced pineapple on the grill and cook until it begins to caramelize.
  6. Once everything is cooked, serve by placing the grilled pineapple on top of the chicken!
Notes
*I actually did a little less than a ¼ cup of liquid aminos and it turned out perfectly. You could also choose to sub for soy sauce, just make sure to use low sodium!
**Short on time? The longer the better for the marinade, but I'd recommend a minimum of 1 hour.
