Pineapple-Teriyaki Chicken

Grilled teriyaki chicken with pineapple can be made with just a few pantry staples. Although it’s delicious when made with canned pineapple, fresh pineapple and its juice can easily be used in its place. Serve with brown rice and snow peas.


  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce, reduced-sodium
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 20-ounce can pineapple rings, plus 1/3 cup juice from the can
  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken thighs, about 1 1/2 pounds, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Step 1
Whisk sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar and the 1/3 cup pineapple juice in a large bowl. Add pineapple rings and chicken and gently stir to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Step 2
Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high.
Step 3
Remove the chicken and pineapple from the marinade and pat dry; reserve the marinade. Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken and pineapple until the chicken is cooked through and the pineapple is marked, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Step 4
Whisk the reserved marinade and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook, whisking, until reduced and thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in butter. Serve the chicken and pineapple drizzled with the sauce.
