Easy Preparation with Canned Pineapple

To make this recipe as simple as possible, I opted for canned pineapple. It’s convenient and available year-round, ensuring you can whip up this delicious dish whenever you like. However, if you have fresh pineapple on hand, by all means, use it! Fresh pineapple will add an extra burst of flavor and a bit of texture to the dish.  If using fresh pineapple, you’ll also need some pineapple juice for the marinade.

Instructions

  1. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.
  2. Slightly open the can of pineapples and pour the juice into a gallon-size zipper bag. Set aside the pineapple chunks.
  3. In the same zipper bag,  combine, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil to make the teriyaki marinade.  Massage to combine ingredients.
  4. Place the chicken pieces in the bag with the marinade. Seal the bag and massage to coat the chicken.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  5. Preheat your griddle or Blackstone to medium-high heat and add the avocado oil.
  6. Remove the chicken from the marinade, with a slotted spoon. Reserve the marinade.
  7. Cook the chicken on the griddle for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until fully cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C).
  8. In a small saucepan, bring the reserved marinade to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5-10 minutes until thickened.
  9. During the last few minutes of cooking, add the pineapple chunks to the griddle and caramelize slightly.
  10. Pour the thickened marinade over the chicken and pineapples during the last few minutes of cooking.
  11. Remove the chicken and pineaaples from the griddle and let rest for a few minutes. Serve chicken and pineapples over rice garnished with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

Marinating Made Simple

Marinating the chicken is a breeze with a gallon-size zip lock bag. This method not only ensures that the chicken is thoroughly coated with the flavorful marinade but also makes cleanup a snap. Just toss the bag when you’re done—no muss, no fuss.

Discovering the Blackstone Griddle

When I unwrapped my Blackstone griddle on Mother’s Day, I knew I was in for some culinary adventures. This griddle has been a game-changer for my cooking, providing a versatile and efficient way to prepare meals outside. The large cooking surface allows for even heat distribution, making it perfect for everything from breakfast to dinner.  Plus, I don’t heat up the house cooking inside in the summer.

Cooking on the Blackstone

Cooking the marinated chicken on the Blackstone griddle is quick and easy. The high heat of the griddle caramelizes the sugars in the pineapple and teriyaki sauce, giving the chicken a deliciously crispy exterior while keeping the inside juicy and tender. The large surface area of the griddle allows you to cook the chicken in one batch, making it perfect for feeding a crowd.

Serving Suggestions

Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken is best served on top of a bed of fluffy rice, which soaks up the delicious sauce and complements the flavors perfectly. For a complete meal, pair it with a green vegetable. I chose my Famous Green Beans, which add a nice crunch and a pop of color to the plate. Steamed broccoli is another excellent option that pairs well with the sweet and savory chicken.

Perfect for Families and Gatherings

One of the great things about Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken is its versatility. It’s a fantastic option for family dinners, as the flavors are kid-friendly and sure to please even the pickiest eaters. The dish is also a hit at gatherings, where its appealing presentation and delicious taste make it a crowd favorite.

Ideal for Meal Prep

If you’re into meal prepping, you’ll love this recipe. The leftovers are just as tasty as the freshly cooked dish, making it a convenient option for preparing lunches or dinners in advance. Simply store the cooked chicken and rice in airtight containers in the refrigerator, and you’ll have a ready-to-eat meal that can be quickly reheated.
