Updated Dec 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.

    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.

    Heat any remaining teriyaki mixture to boiling. Serve warm mixture with chicken and pineapple.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
