Grilled Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken with Yoshida Sauce

When I first pulled this chicken out of the oven, it smelled like pineapple. The first bite was sweet, but the next was savory, salty, and oh so delicious. This dish was one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever had, and it was so simple to make. All you need to make this dish is chicken, fresh pineapple, soy sauce, and a simple pineapple teriyaki sauce.

Pineapple is one of the best vegetables to eat. And it’s delicious when grilled. This is a great dish to make for any occasion when you want to grill a pineapple but don’t want to spend hours preparing one.

For the longest time, I’ve been a fan of the Yoshida Sauce, which is a sweet, savory, tangy, and slightly hot sauce commonly used to marinate meat. The combination of sweet and savory in the sauce make it an ideal marinade for pork and chicken, as well as a perfect sauce for dipping grilled Japanese food, which is what I was using it for.

Grilled Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken with Yoshida Sauce instructions

  1. Use any type of chicken thigh or breast that you prefer, cut to bite size or thinly sliced.
  2. Pineapple, sliced into pieces long enough to fit on a skewer
  3. Make sure to combine enough sauce for basting and marinate the chicken for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Using skewers, thread the chicken (when I marinate meat I make sure to have enough sauce to cover the meat)
  5. Grill the chicken over medium heat until it becomes brown, then baste it with the teriyaki and Yoshida sauce mixture on both sides.
  6. Cook the pineapple in the same way, and when it’s nearly done, spray it with the sauce and grill until it’s caramelized.

Serve with rice or a salad of Asian vegetables.

Pineapple is my favorite fruit, and I love all types of meats, but if I were forced to pick between meat and fruit, I would choose meat. I absolutely adore grilled pineapple, and it’s only gotten more popular in the past few years. (If you didn’t know that pineapple is a fruit, it turns out that it’s technically not even a vegetable, but a berry, so you don’t need to feel badly about that.).
