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

In a medium bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar substitute, ketchup, garlic, ground ginger, pepper, chili powder and salt. Reserve approximately 1/3 cup of the marinade and set aside.

Step 2

Place the chicken breasts into a resealable bag and pour the remainder of the marinade over the chicken. Coat the chicken well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to 24 hours.

Step 3

When ready to cook, heat grill on medium-high heat. Treat grill grates with olive oil. 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 4

If grilling pineapple, brush pineapple slices with olive oil, and cook alongside the chicken. Pineapple can also cook approximately 6 minutes per side.

Step 5

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