    If you love the taste of TGI Friday’s Dragonfire chicken, you’ll appreciate this easy Copycat marinade.

    We’ve found that it imparts the perfect amount of spice to chicken or fish (particularly salmon!)

    3 tbsp Olive oil
    2 tbsp Honey
    1 tbsp Rice vinegar
    1/2 tbsp Lime juice
    1 tbsp Parsley, chopped
    1 Jalapeno, seeded and chopped
    2 tsp Garlic, minced
    1 tbsp Onion, diced
    Salt- to taste

    Combine all the ingredients in a blender or hand-chopper and blend. Pour mixture over chicken breasts or salmon and marinate an hour or so before grilling.

    Pineapple Pico De Gallo

    1/2 cup Pineapple, finely chopped canned or fresh
    2 Tomatoes, finely diced
    1/2 cup Red onion, finely diced
    2 tbsp Cilantro, minced
    2 tbsp Jalapeno, minced
    1 tbsp Lime juice
    Salt- to taste

    Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and refrigerate until needed.

    Kung Pow Sauce

    ¼ cup Water
    2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
    ½ cup Dark Brown sugar
    4 tbsp Soy sauce
    1 tbsp Chili sauce
    1 tbsp Garlic, minced
    1 tbsp Ginger, minced

    Combine all the ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
    When the sauce begins to boil, lower the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.
    When the sauce thickens, remove from the heat, strain the sauce to discard the ginger/garlic.

    Marinade the chicken/fish, grill on both sides until cooked to your preference, top with a drizzle of kung pow sauce and a scoop of pineapple pico.

    Ooooo, Liss, these sound fabulous! The TGIF closed down a couple of years ago and so haven’t been to one for a while…giggle… These sound so good!

    You have to add a few Mandarin Orange segments to the top for the COMPLETE Copycat recipe, but your sauce and pico are Spot On my friend.
