Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken Recipe

I like to marinate this moist chicken entree overnight, then pop it on the grill for a breezy taste of the islands that family and friends really go for. —Vicki Roberts, Jacksonville, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (20 ounces) sliced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 4 slices provolone cheese (1 ounce each)

Directions

  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; refrigerate pineapple. In a small bowl, combine teriyaki sauce and reserved juice. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting frequently with some of the remaining marinade.

  • 4. Top each piece of chicken with cheese and two pineapple slices. Grill, covered, for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.
