Pineapple Teriyaki Grilled Chicken

This Pineapple Teriyaki Grilled Chicken is so easy to make and tastes amazing. If you are looking for a quick, healthy, and delicious dinner, this is your recipe.

There are a lot of yummy teriyaki sauces that you can buy at the store, but sometimes they are so loaded with sodium and other ingredients that I can’t pronounce that I hesitate to purchase them.
I have been on the lookout for a recipe that I could make myself and happened to stumble across this one . . . it was delicious.
It is the perfect amount of sweet and salty and the longer you let your chicken marinate, the more delicious it becomes. This recipe is now a staple at our house- everyone loves it.
The chicken is incredibly tender and juicy. It has been on our menu every week for the past month, because we just can’t get enough of it.
It is so simple to make and tastes absolutely amazing. If you have a bbq coming up, this is one recipe I highly recommend making.

could i use fresh pineapple instead of canned?

I love this recipe because of the chicken and pineapple combination. To make my life a little easier, I also use the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple rings, rather than a separate can of pineapple juice.

However, this chicken is almost even more delicious with fresh pineapple. I just used fresh pineapple slices (I did not cut them into rings, they were just pineapple slices I cut off from the rind.)

It was absolutely delicious with the fresh pineapple, but the pineapple rings from the can were just as delicious.

If you do use fresh pineapple, you will still need to purchase pineapple juice, whereas if you use pineapple rings, you can use the pineapple juice from the can.

  • 1 (6 ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4-6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Pineapple slices (optional)
  • Chopped green onions (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, mix the pineapple juice, vegetable oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, and pepper. Place chicken in the bowl, and coat with the mixture. Cover, and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours (I like mine to marinate for about 8 hours).
  2. Heat grill to medium-high. Place chicken on grill until just cooked through (about 5-7 minutes per side).
  3. Place pineapple slices on grill and cook until grill marks appear (just a minute or two per side).
  4. Remove chicken and pineapple from grill and place one slice of pineapple on each chicken breast. Sprinkle green onions on top.
  5. Don't have a grill? That's okay! You can make this chicken in your oven:
  6. Preheat the oven broiler.
  7. Place chicken on a baking sheet. Broil 5 minutes on each side in the preheated oven, or until no longer pink and juices run clear.
  8. *Make sure that you discard any leftover marinade.

    Searched online for pineapple teriyaki grilled chicken, and came across your marinade/recipe. I doubled the marinade and kept some separate and added honey and reduced and simmered. Next time, I will omit oil from the simmer sauce, so it can reduce further and thicken and baste or top a side of veggie rice with it, for flavor. Thanks!
