I followed the recommendation of a previous poster and brined the chicken (always brine the chicken, anyway). Used about 2 T lime juice and a handful of cilantro - blended all into a Vita-Mix (though a blender would work as well). Phenomenal!

The key to this is soak the chicken in salt water for an hour. This seasons the chicken and keeps it juicy. The marinade is excellent!

The chicken that comes from this brine is juicy and delicious. The only change I made was to extend the chicken's soak in the lime/pineapple/water mixture. Let it go most of the day, pulled it out, grilled it, and it was great.
