1 c. pineapple juice
1 clove garlic, pressed
3 T. minced onion
1 t. ground ginger
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 can beer
1/4 c. butter or oil

Combine first eight ingredients and stir until dissolved. Pour over chicken and marinate overnight or at least 8 hours. Be sure sauce covers all pieces. Drain and save marinade. In a large skillet, heat a small amount of oil and brown chicken on all sides over medium heat. When brown, add 1/2-cup marinade; cover; reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes. Stir and add more marinade if necessary. This may be cooked a day ahead and then reheated in oven before serving. Add marinade to moisten before heating. Serve hot in a chafing dish.
