Fun Friday HONEY PINEAPPLE BBQ CHICKEN WINGS

To make the marinade, place Italian dressing and pineapple juice in a bowl. Whisk until well blended. Place the marinade along with the chicken in a large plastic bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator and marinate overnight.
Prepare the grill with medium heat. Remove the chicken form the bag and discard the bag along with the marinade. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the grill over direct heat for 5 minutes turning halfway through cooking time. Turn the chicken again and move it to indirect heat. Cook for 10-15 more minutes or until done.
In a small bowl, combine honey and BBQ sauce. Brush sauce on chicken during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
