Grilled Malibu Chicken (pic)

Grilled Malibu Chicken

Here is a great way to add some much needed pizazz and wow factor to
grilled boneless-skinless chicken breasts. As I've said before, they certainly
need all the help they can get.

Image

The breasts are marinated in a dry rub, grilled with a pineapple mustard
mop sauce, then topped with sliced deli ham, Swiss cheese and a
pineapple ring. It's almost like an inside-out cordon bleu that can be served
plated, or as a sandwich on a hearty bun.

Ingredients
6 Boneless/skinless chicken breasts
12 slices Deli ham (thin)
6 slices Canned pineapple
6 slices Swiss cheese (I used Boar's Head® Baby Swiss)
1/2 cup Pineapple juice
4 Tbsp Unsalted butter, melted
2 Tbsp BBQ seasoning (I used Sucklebusters Hoochie Mama)
1 Tbsp Plain yellow mustard
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Molasses
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Chili powder

Method
Put a breast in a gallon zip-top bag and pound the thick end until the
entire breast is uniform in thickness, then move to a platter or rimmed
sheet pan.

Repeat with the remaining breasts.

Season both sides of each breast with the BBQ seasoning, cover and
refrigerate at least an hour.

Combine the butter, pineapple juice, mustard, honey, molasses,
Worcestershire sauce and chili powder a medium mixing bowl and whisk
until smooth, then set aside.

Prepare your grill for two-zone cooking (direct and indirect) at medium-high
heat (about 400º).

Quickly grill one side of each breast and each pineapple ring over direct
heat until they are seared and have nice grill marks, about two minutes.

Flip each breast and ring, brush with the sauce, and cook another two
minutes.

Move the chicken to the indirect part of the grill and brush the top of each
with the sauce.

Top each breast with two slices of ham and drizzle the ham with the
sauce.

Put a slice of cheese then a pineapple ring on each breast and drizzle yet
again with the sauce.

Continue cooking with the grill lid down until the internal temperature
reaches 160º, about 10 minutes.

Serve with, yes, you guessed it, a drizzle of sauce.

Enjoy!

Looks great John. The only thing I may do is chop some fresh jalapeno in the marinade. The spice would go great with the swiss and the sweet of the pineapple.

Thanks for the pics.

John, I was going off the photo and did not read it entirely, my bad. I guess you could incorporate that in your dipping sauce and sorry for the mix up on my part.

Have not seen that before but may have to try it. I was thinking a fresh slice of jalapeno or two. My wife does a chicken sandwich marinade that is below and the chicken comes out real moist and we use a whole jalapeno in the marinade for the flavor alone. Great sammie with swiss on it. Maybe try it sometime.

Boneless Chicken

Cayenne -Both to taste
Black Pepper
Soy Sauce- Enough to cover Chicken
Juice of 1 Lime
One Jalapeno – Cut top off Pepper and drop in Marinade


Baste while grilling, top with favorite cheese. We like Swiss. Enjoy.
