  • 1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 small garlic clove finely minced
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)


  • To make the teriyaki sauce, place the crushed pineapple, soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic a bowl, whisk to combine. Pour half of the teriyaki sauce in a resealable plastic bag and reserve the other half. Place the chicken breasts in the resealable bag, close and give it a good massage to coat with the marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • When ready to cook, turn on the broiler and place the rack in the middle position. Place the marinated chicken breasts on a foil-lined baking sheet and spoon some of the chunky pineapple/ginger from the marinade on top of the breast. It will help keep the chicken moist. Broil for 8 to 10 minutes on each side, for a total of 16-20 minutes. Discard any remaining marinade in the bag.
  • While the chicken is broiling, heat the reserved teriyaki sauce (that you had previously set aside in step 1) in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3 minutes or until thickened slightly.
  • When chicken is done, Slice the chicken, pour the teriyaki sauce over top and serve immediately.


  • This recipe is also super versatile so feel free to add whatever veggies you like such as snap peas, asparagus, carrots, etc. 
  • You could swap the pineapple for orange.
  • Keeping the chicken in the marinade overnight will make it even tastier.
  • Instead of broiling, the chicken can also be grilled for 6 minutes on each side.
