Polynesian Honey-Pineapple Chicken

Recipezaar Recipe #61981

1/2 cup pineapple juice (unsweetened)
1/4 cup honey
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger (or 1 tsp. ground)
1 teaspoon salt
12 chicken drumsticks or chicken thighs (or a combination, approx. 3 lbs. or any other meaty chicken pieces)

For marinade, in sauce pan combine pineapple juice, honey, worcestershire sauce, garlic, ginger& salt.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat.
Simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes or until marinade mixture is reduced 1/4 (approx.).
Cool to room temperature.
Place chicken pieces in a plastic bag or shallow dish.
Pour in marinade & marinate chicken at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours.

Drain chicken pieces, reserving marinade.
Cook chicken on covered medium heat grill (indirect heat) for 40 to 45 minutes or until chicken is tender& no longer pink, brushing occasionally with reserved marinade for the first 30 minutes.

Freezer Chicks instructions: You each get three enormous (Misti-six smaller) raw breasts (with bone and skin) in marinade. I wish I would have changed the recipe to boneless/skinless--but I'm still learning! Thaw and proceed with the instructions above.
