4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
Pineapple slices for garnish
Chopped green onions for garnish
Cooked white rice or noodles for serving
1- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using).
2- Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish or zip-top bag. Pour the teriyaki marinade over the chicken, ensuring it’s fully coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for more flavor.
3- Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Alternatively, you can use an oven broiler.
4- Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the excess marinade for later. Grill the chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear. Baste with the reserved marinade occasionally while grilling.
5- Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Slice it into thin strips.
6- In a small saucepan, bring the remaining marinade to a boil over medium heat. Allow it to simmer for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
7- Serve the grilled teriyaki chicken over cooked white rice or noodles. Drizzle the thickened marinade over the chicken and garnish with pineapple slices and chopped green onions.
