This refreshing chicken is moist and full of great taste. Any leftovers would be a delicious addition to a grilled vegetable salad the next day.


  • 3/4 cup Pineapple crushed
  • 1 tbsp ginger grated or minced fresh
  • 1 clove garlic large, grated or minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce sodium reduced
  • 2 tsp olive oil extra virgin or canola oil
  • 1 lb chicken breasts boneless skinless, (about 3 to 4 small)
  • 2 tbsp mint chopped, fresh
  • 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce


  1. In a shallow dish, combine 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the pineapple, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and oil; set aside.
  2. Remove tenderloin from chicken and reserve for another use.
  3. On a cutting board, slice chicken breasts in half crosswise almost all the way through and open up like a book. Add to marinade, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  4. Place chicken breasts on preheated medium high grill for about 8 minutes, turning a few times or until no longer pink inside.
  5. Stir mint and hot pepper sauce into remaining pineapple and serve with grilled chicken.
