Chicken & Veggie Marinade

I found this recipe in a magazine a few summers ago.  I am not sure what kind of magazine it was.  But I know it wasn't one of those subscriptions I pay for yearly.
This recipe just does something incredible to grilled chicken.....

1/3 cup grapefruit juice... (Orange juice can be subbed here.)
1/3 cup olive oil
1 package of good seasons dry italian dressing mix ( It comes in a box with 4 packages.)

Combine all that together and let the chicken marinade in this for an hour or two.  I just throw it all in a large ziploc and rotate around every so often.   (This can also be thrown all in a bag and frozen for up to 3 months.)
.....or just brush on veggies and grill.

If you are familiar with SaltGrass steakhouse....  This tastes like the marinade they use on their poultry & vegetables.  Try it and tell me what you think!

I didn't brush it on the pineapples here.  I just cut it up and threw on the grill.  Grilled pineapple is amazing.  Try it.  You can use either a fresh one or just buy a can of rings.  Either way, it is good!

I always grill extra chicken.  It makes a great chicken salad.  Chop it all up with one of the pineapple slices.  Add some mayo and toasted pecans and whatever else you want in your salad...Amazing Stuff there.
