    Pineapple juice makes protein mushy if left to long. 1 hr MAX in the marinade!!

    This recipe sounded great, but when we grilled the chicken, it became mushy around the outside. I am not sure if the pineapple juice was too acidic or if it marinated too long? I did marinate it for 2 hours. I would not make this again. The texture made the chicken unappealing.
