  • Portion size 8 servings
  • Credits : Christine Chenier


  • 1 pineapple peeled, cored, cut into 8 thick rings
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until translucent and beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the honey, hot pepper sauce and chili powder and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from the heat, stir in the lemon juice and set aside.

 2. Preheat a grill or large grill pan to medium-high. Rub the chicken with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt. Grill until well marked, about 7 minutes. Flip and cook until the bottoms are well marked and the chicken is cooked through, another 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and brush with the reserved honey glaze. Cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, grill the pineapple until well marked on one side, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Serve with the chicken.
