Since koo koo roo closed I started looking for an alternative. I have been making this for a couple years now and the family loves it. Today I didn't have all the juices so I just juiced a gala, granny smith apple, some carrots, celery, spinach, a few tomatoes, a lemon and half a lime for the marinade and added some salt, pepper and garlic powder. I did not have pineapple and used boneless breast. I was only able to marinate it for a few hours and had to broil it on a rack(was originally making something else and had cut the chicken too small for the grill), figure it was much healthier and cheaper this way, as buying all those juices adds up. I tossed it into a ziplock bag so the small amount of liquid would marinate all of the meat. Anyway, both my way and this recipe turn out great.
