  • I had a dish called "Ambrosia" at a Fourth of July party ... it was pineapples, coolwhip (I think), coconut, maybe mini marshmallows ... it would go great w/a luau theme. Sorry i don't have a recipe, but it was VERY yummy! Maybe a search for ambrosia recipe would turn it up.

  • 16 chicken tenders, cut into 3 pieces
    16 slices of bacon, cut into 3 pieces
    1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks, drained & juice reserved
    1 c. bottled teriyaki sauce
    2 tsp freshly grated ginger
    2 cloves garlic, grated.

    Mix together teriyaki sauce, ginger, garlic & 1/2 c. reserved pineapple juice (discard the rest). Set aside. Wrap each piece of chicken in a piece of bacon; secure with a toothpick & top with a pineapple chunk. Place in marinade & let sit 2-3 hours, mixing a few times.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line rimmed cookie sheets with parchment (DO NOT USE FOIL). Remove chicken from marinade & place on cookie sheets. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked and bacon in brown & crispy. You can substitute water chestnut halves for the pineapple or use both.
