4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 4 thick-cut pork chops

4 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp Kosher salt

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

2 Tbsp paprika

4 Tbsp Papa Jacks Steak & Chop Marinade

1 cup pineapple juice

1/2 cup melted butter



For the rub:  In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, Kosher salt, cayenne pepper, and paprika to create the seasoning rub.

For the finishing sauce: Combine the pineapple juice, melted butter, and 1 teaspoon of the seasoning rub mixture in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until warm.

Rub the chicken generously with the rub on all sides.

Apply Papa Jacks Steak & Chop to the seasoned chicken breasts, ensuring they are evenly coated.

Preheat your grill to 350°F.

Grill the chicken for 10 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). During the last 5–10 minutes of cooking baste the chicken generously with the finishing sauce.

Remove it from the grill and place it on a serving platter. Drizzle the warm pineapple finishing sauce over the chicken breasts.

Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before serving.
