You’re going to love the combination of flavors and the tender chicken. It will be a “go-to” favorite.
Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a glass bowl.
Mix 3/4 of the marinade with the chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag, seal bag and refrigerate chicken for at least 30 minutes.
Now, for a few quick tips on cutting a pineapple. For the longest time I wasn’t sure I would be able to cut a pineapple so I never bought one. But after I finally tried and discovered how easy it really is I buy them all summer long.
First, cut off the top and bottom. Stand it upright and guide your knife along the side, almost like you’re peeling an apple. Continue working around the whole pineapple, then go back and trim a little closer to remove any dark spots. Lay it on its side and slice it.
Now for the real trick. Use an apple corer to remove the hard center. If you don’t have one you can gently use a sharp paring knife, but I would encourage you to invest in the corer. Plus they’re really kind of fun to use.
Put slices in with the remainder of the marinade and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the grill to 450-500 F.
Remove chicken from the marinade. Grill chicken about 4 minutes on the first side, turn over each piece and pour remaining marinade over the chicken. Grill 4-5 minutes more and remove from grill. Do not overcook. Bring inside, squeeze a lime over the chicken and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
THIS IS THE SECRET TO REALLY MOIST CHICKEN. Let it rest while you grill the pineapple.
The pineapple won’t take long to get nice grill marks. About 5-10 minutes depending on how hot your grill is.
Arrange both the chicken and pineapple on a platter, sprinkle with chopped garlic chives for a bit of color and wait to hear how much they like it.
I have to say, this might be my favorite chicken yet. It’s moist and juicy with tons of flavor. I like each bite to have a bit of chicken and a piece of pineapple. It really does melt in your mouth.
And if you have any left over, it’s good cold in the morning. (Trust me on this … I just finished the last few bites.)
