- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 2 cups pineapple chunks
- Wooden skewers, soaked in water
- Start by preparing the marinade. In a bowl, combine teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Mix until the sugar is dissolved.
- Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and place them in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, seal or cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld.
- While the chicken is marinating, soak wooden skewers in water to prevent them from burning on the grill.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates to prevent sticking.
- Thread the marinated chicken pieces and pineapple chunks onto the soaked skewers, alternating between chicken and pineapple for a beautiful presentation.
- Place the skewers on the preheated grill and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and has a delicious char.
- Serve your Tangy Teriyaki Pineapple Chicken Skewers hot off the grill, garnished with chopped cilantro or green onions, if desired.
