  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 8 oz can pineapple rings juice drained and reserved


  • 1/4 cup brown sugar light or dark
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce optional
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


  • In a large bowl mix the marinade ingredients plus the reserved pineapple juice. Mix well until sugar is dissolved.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup of marinade for later use and add the rest to a Ziploc bag.
  • Place the chicken breasts into the marinade. Squeeze out the air, seal, and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or better overnight.
  • Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F or preheat the grill pan over medium-high heat.
  • Rub the grates with oil.
  • Remove chicken breasts from marinade and shake off excess liquid. Arrange on the grill and cook for 5-8 minutes per side. While grilling, brush it a few times with the reserved marinade. Chicken breasts are cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • While chicken is grilling arrange pineapple rings onto the grill and cook until lightly charred with grill marks.
  • Arrange chicken on a platter, top with pineapple slices, and serve.
