Orange, lime and pineapple grilled chicken

This was a lovely light and tasty marinade that I put over some chicken drumsticks yesterday. I saw something similar on Little Chef and I website, but was wanting to use my pineapple juice that I had (I love pineapples) and thought this would be a great combo. Went great with the punpkin and spinach salad I did the night before, just added some roast potatoes for some more carbs :)

8 drumsticks (for 2 adults, 2 kids)

1 orange with the zest and juice

1 lime with the zest and juice

small handful chopped continental parsely

half red onion

1 tablespoon sugar

1/3 cup pineapple juice

Place the jucies and zest with the parsley and onion in a zip lock bag or air tight container and mix the chicken pieces around so they are all covered. Best to marinade a few hours before cooking so they get the full flavour. I also threw in the orange and lime skins that were left over after juicing just for extra flavour.
Place chicken on hot grill, or you could bake in the oven until cooked through.

My chicken for some reason took a LONG time to grill and I had to end up putting it back on when I began to eat as I noticed down the bottom it was a tad undercooked still. So make sure you leave adequate time to cook your chicken to go with the sides.

It was delicious, kids and hubby loved it :)
