Pull out the chaise, put on your shades and soak up the warm, sunny flavors of the islands when you serve this tropical grilled chicken.

Ingredients

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

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small saucepan, mix teriyaki glaze, pineapple preserves and lime juice. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until preserves are melted. Stir in cilantro. Set aside.
  • 2 Sprinkle all sides of each chicken breast with pepper blend and salt. Place on grill over medium heat. Cook 10 minutes, turning once.
  • 3 Meanwhile, cut 18-inch square sheet of heavy-duty foil. Place pineapple slices in single layer on foil. Brush each with teriyaki mixture.
  • 4 After chicken has cooked 10 minutes, place foil with pineapple on grill next to chicken. Brush chicken with teriyaki mixture. Cook chicken and pineapple 5 to 10 minutes longer, brushing chicken once or twice with teriyaki mixture, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut (170°F). If desired, cut pineapple slices into wedges.
  • 5 Heat any remaining teriyaki mixture to boiling; boil 1 minute. Serve hot mixture with chicken and pineapple.
