I like to marinate this moist chicken entree overnight, then pop it on the grill for a breezy taste of the islands that family and friends really go for. —Vicki Roberts, Jacksonville, Florida

"So delicious and moist! Grilling and basting the pineapple is out of the world good and will definately make this again. Used Mozza slices instead of provolone since this is what I had but will choose a cheese with more bite next time. Yummy, wish I had leftovers for today!"

"This is sooo good! Used 2 George Forman grills as are outdoor grill is under 4 feet of snow, but am looking forward to using this recipe this summer. Didn't do any basting and the flavor was still wonderful and the chicken was very moist. Didn't have provolone cheese so I used sliced swiss instead."
