Easy Grilled Pineapple Chicken



– 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3-4 medium) Pineapple Marinade: – 1/3 c. avocado oil (or olive oil) – 1/4 c. low sodium soy sauce (or soy aminos) – 1/4 c. pineapple juice – 2 Tbsp. brown sugar substitute (like Swerve) – 2 Tbsp. low-sugar ketchup – 2 tsp. minced garlic (about 2-3 cloves) – 1/2 tsp. ground ginger – 1/2 tsp. chili powder – 1/2 tsp. ground pepper – 1/2 tsp. salt


Step 1

To make this pineapple chicken marinade, you’ll simply whisk together the marinade ingredients in a bowl.

Step 2

Once you’ve whisked together the ingredients, reserve about 1/3 cup of the marinade. You will use this to brush on top of the chicken as it cooks.

Step 3

Pour the remaining marinade over the top of your chicken that has been placed in a resealable bag or shallow dish. Make sure the marinade coats the chicken well. Refrigerate the marinated chicken for 30 minutes to 24 hours.

Step 4

Once the chicken has spent time marinating, it is ready to be grilled. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the remaining marinade. Your chicken is ready to grill when the temperature reached 350-400 degrees.

Step 5

Place chicken over indirect heat, and grill approximately 6 minutes per side. Once you turn the chicken, brush with the reserved marinade, and let it cook for the final 6 minutes.

Step 6

Remove chicken from grill, transfer to serving plate and enjoy right away alongside the grilled pineapple.
