We really enjoyed this and were smacking our lips and licking our fingers by the end of the meal (one person even licked the plate). I used 8 chicken wings which had a weight of just over 1K (2lb) and used the full recipe quantities, I didn't have crushed pineapple but had sliced (in juice not syrup) and finely sliced up 2 rings to give me the quantity I needed. Put the wings in a 13x9 pan (just fitted) and poured over half the marinade (I find cooking in the marinade keeps them more moist) at the half way point 20 minutes I put in the rest of the marinade and cooked for a further 20 minutes and the end result sweet perfect wings and a sauce well was wishing I had rice to soak it up with but served with Herbed Pumpkin which was a nice herby tasting contrast to the sweetness of the wings. Thank you lazyme, made for Went To The Market.
I actually made half a recipe of the marinade & used it on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I had cut them into strips so poured the marinade over them in a ziplock bag. I rotated it a few times over 6 hours. I then threaded the chicken onto bamboo skewers & grilled on a foreman grill. On the skewers I threaded pineapple wedges, onions, & bell peppers. This has a very Asian flavor profile, lots of ginger notes in the forefront, sweet, and sticky. I will definitely make this again! =)
