kaneohe, does this need to be grilled over lower heat? i would think with the sugars it might burn easily.

@buckytom, ya know, I have this two burner propane Brinkmann
super-cheap-o grill and I cook everything with both burners on high and I'd estimate that it takes maybe 5 minutes from start to finish.
It has flared from time to time, but I'm sure that you're like me and keep a squirt bottle of water just for that
You might see there is a bit of char on my chicken in the photo that I posted.
But you cook your's how you like it best.
My Mother use to tell us kids, eat the brunt parts,
charcoal is good for you.
ALOHA! k~girl

1 Garlic clove, smashed
5 pounds Chicken Thighs (I use boneless-skinless)

Mix together the first seven ingredients
Pour over the Chicken and marinate for 24 hours
Grill or broil, using the marinade to baste the Chicken
Serve either hot or at room temperature, great for a backyard barbecue, a picnic or a potluck.

*Cook’s note-Guava Juice concentrate can be found in Asian and Hispanic markets

Sounds good. Do you think I could substitute a can of guavas pureed and strained for the guava juice concentrate as we don't have it here?

Ya know Mad Cook, that sounds like like it would work.
Try it, tell us how it turns out.
Recipes are someone else's idea, run with it, make it yours.

Kgirl, I have some chicken wings swimming around in your marinade and I'll grill them tomorrow. I tasted it before they went for a swim, and put some in a jar for basting both the wings and some fresh pineapple spears. It's gonna be major ono!!!

I found frozen concentrated POG (passion fruit, orange, guava) so I used that instead of the guava juice. In addition to your recipe I also added a big tablespoon of Sambal Oelk (ground fresh chili paste), and a few shakes of fish sauce.

I can hardly wait for tomorrow. Thanks again, and I'll report back.

My Sistah Kathy, this SOOOOO sounds like a 'winner winner chicken' ...
PLATE LUNCH! HA! No forget the rice sis!
If I might, could I suggest a side dish of Namasu,
I believe I posted that already...
I think you Braddah Steve will like the combo,
sweet, sour, spicy, savory, umami, yeah?
truly a Hawaiian plate lunch special.
I have a chef-y friend in Seattle, he has a Food Truck
as well as a "brick&mortar"; he now serves
Guava Chicken with rice and namasu,
it sells out every day. (lots of Hawaii transplants there )
