If you want to celebrate this hard and fast change of career choice on your own personal time, I suggest a mid-fall luau. And I suggest you serve this chicken. You could make this the main dish for a Hawaiian or Polynesian inspired meal or serve it as a party food.
Pineapple Soy Chicken Skewers
2 lbs chicken cut into large pieces
1 20oz can pineapple chunks in juice (you can use fresh if it is season)
1/8 C soy sauce
1/8 C white vinegar
1 Tbsp vegetable or canola oil
2 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper
Combine pineapple juice from the can (~3/4 C) with soy, vinegar, and oils.
Lightly salt and pepper chicken. Toss in marinade. Marinate for 1-8 hours.
Skewer chicken with pineapple chunks. (If using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before skewering and cooking chicken.)
Set broiler to high and place rack about 7 inches from top. Place skewers on a broiler pan or baking sheet. Cook for 3 minutes, turn skewers over, cook another 3 minutes. (Or you can grill them.)
Reduce marinade by 1/3 over med-high. Pour over cooked chicken.
Serves 4-6 main dish. 8-10 as an hors d'oeurves.
