Course Main Course
Servings 4


  • 1.5 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts about 4 breasts


  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ½ cup finely chopped pineapple*
  • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha


  • 1 large pineapple cored and sliced into rounds or sticks
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  • Place the chicken breasts in a large gallon-size bag or a baking dish.
  • Mix up the marinade by combining soy sauce, ketchup, finely chopped pineapple, pineapple juice, honey, vinegar, and sriracha in a bowl. Pour half of the marinade over the chicken and reserve the rest for later. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • When it’s grill time, take the chicken out of the fridge and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Preheat your grill to 450ºF and clean the grill grate or lay down a piece of aluminum foil.
  • Season the pineapple slices with chili powder and salt.
  • Grill the marinated chicken over direct heat for about 8 minutes per side.
  • Grill the pineapple for 2-3 minutes per side until grill marks appear. Remove from the grill.
  • While the chicken cooks, pour the reserved marinade into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Once the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF, remove it from the grill.
  • Serve the grilled pineapple over the chicken and drizzle with the remaining marinade. Dig in and enjoy!


  • You can finely chop the pineapple in a food processor or with a sharp knife.
  • Grilling times may vary depending on your grill type.
  • If you prefer, you can also cook the chicken and pineapple in a skillet on the stove or bake them in the oven.
