Grilled Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

These Roasted Ranch Veggies are my current favorite side dish.  They are so good, that I have been searching for main dishes to serve with them.  Usually, it's the other way around.

I found this grilled chicken recipe the other day and it just so happened that I had all the ingredients on hand.  It turned out yummy and tasted great with my veggies.  I love new marinade recipes.  If anyone has a favorite, send it on my way.

- 4 chicken breasts

Teriyaki Sauce
3 Tbl. soy sauce
2 Tbl. fresh lime juice
3 Tbl. pineapple juice
1/4 c. water
3 Tbl. honey
3 Tbl. ketchup
splash of sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbl. fresh ginger, grated
2 Tbl. minced green onions

Combine all sauce ingredients and pour over the chicken in a zip-top bag.  Marinate overnight.  Grill chicken (I used my George Foreman) and serve.  Serves: 4 

Jenn's Notes: I only use half the sauce to marinate my chicken and then I heat the remaining sauce and mix with 1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 teaspoon cold water to thicken and drizzle that over my chicken before serving.
