Grilled Hawaiian Chicken

Elizabeth Lancaster


This was my Grandfathers speciality, he got it from better homes and gardens a long time ago. we used to go on camping/fishing trips and he would grill up his famous Hawaiian Chicken,but the real kicker with this recipe, is that Grandpa's sauce for the chicken, NEVER I mean never tasted the same as the written recipe that he gave us.(It's my personal opinion that he had a secret that he never shared with anyone):) I like to serve mine with Baked potatoes with sour Cream.
