Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken
Sometimes, there’s nothing better than some really good Asian food.
For some, it’s comfort food, like local Chinese food with fried rice and those heavy, but absurdly delicious, egg rolls.
It is for me, but only when I make it. I don’t think that’s self-inflating, however, I just happen to enjoy mine more than having it from a restaurant because I can control what’s in it, and leave the shit out that I don’t want. Like the nasty shit.
Now, I do love sushi, sashimi, dumplings and tuna tataki, from several awesome restaurants – that’s different. This dish is what I would consider something one would order from a restaurant that would typically be full of heavy shit that I can’t stand.
I made this using Moore’s Teriyaki Sauce and the stuff is so flavorful, it doesn’t need a whole lot added to it. There’s a Mexican grocery store near me, and I absolutely adore it. They have the biggest selection of fresh produce that’s vibrant and HUGE. The best part about this place is the prices – everything is priced so much less than other grocery stores. I buy a lot of food, so that shit is important. VERY important.
My idea started with a fresh pineapple. That’s how it usually begins; one simple thing that ends up being something that catapults something in the back of my mind.
Almost every time I get an idea, it works. Not every single time, mind you.
I’ve had my share of fuckups, and will continue to do so. It’s just part of it.
I cut the “meat” out of the pineapple, and sauteed it with butter. The heat brings out the juices from the pineapple, and caramelizes it. Then, I added chicken and it all came together beautifully.
I served it with white rice inside the cored pineapple.
You definitely don’t have to, however. Serve it on a plate, in a bowl, whatever makes you happy.

“Combine chicken with soy sauce through pineapple juice”??? Makes no sense. When and where is the Teriyaki marinade incorporated??? After the pineapple is carmelized and the chicken is grilled are the 2 mixed together??? Isn’t using the reserved marinade, especially that’s been in contact with raw chicken, a health hazard???

Hi Jeffrey! If you look at the instructions, you combine the chicken through pineapple juice, the Teriyaki marinade included. The reserved marinade is combined with butter and pineapple, brought to a boil and simmered which kills any bacteria. Again, this step is in the instructions.
Hope this helps.
