Updated December 6, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup purchased teriyaki baste and glaze
  • 1/4 cup pineapple preserves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts*
  • 1/2 teaspoon black and red pepper blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 slices (3/4 inch thick) fresh pineapple

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas grill or coals. In small saucepan, mix teriyaki glaze, pineapple preserves and lime juice. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until preserves are melted. Stir in cilantro.
  • 2
    Sprinkle all sides of each chicken breast with pepper blend and salt.
  • 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.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, cut 18-inch square sheet of heavy-duty foil. Place pineapple slices in single layer on foil. Brush each with teriyaki mixture.
  • 5
    After chicken has cooked 10 minutes, place foil with pineapple on grill next to chicken. Brush chicken with teriyaki mixture. 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.
  • 6
    Heat any remaining teriyaki mixture to boiling. Serve warm mixture with chicken and pineapple.

  • 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.
