Grilled Sweet and Sour Chicken

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

This is great on the grill or out of the oven. No pans to wash and an easy meal for those days when it is too hot to cook inside.

I used legs and thighs on this and baked in oven at 400F for about 45-50 minutes. Did not use the cornstarch. I used fresh pineapple and only had a yellow bell pepper. Tasted really nice. Next time, I would open the foil towards the end of cooking so the chicken would brown a bit as the skin was kind of mushy. I did serve this with rice. Will try again with the boneless chicken. Thanks Karen!

Not quite sure how I felt about the marmalade flavor on the chicken, but on the veggies it was quite good. Had to bake about 15 minutes longer than posted.
