  • 3 When grill is heated, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals. Cook 10 minutes, turning once.

Cook 5 to 10 minutes longer or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear, brushing occasionally with teriyaki mixture. Cut pineapple slices into wedges, if desired.

Expert Tips

*To broil chicken breasts, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning once and adding pineapple to pan during last 5 minutes of cooking time.

The teriyaki baste and glaze is a thick mixture that gives foods a nice glaze. Teriyaki marinade is thinner; it flavors but does not glaze foods. Use the thicker, richer baste and glaze for this recipe.
