Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

Makes: 4 servings

Active Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup dry sherry
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 20-ounce can pineapple rings, plus 1/3 cup juice from the can
  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken thighs, (about 1 1/2 pounds), trimmed (see Tip)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Preparation

  1. Whisk sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar and the 1/3 cup pineapple juice in a large bowl. Add pineapple rings and chicken and gently stir to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high.
  3. Remove the chicken and pineapple from the marinade and pat dry; reserve the marinade. Oil the grill rack. Grill the chicken and pineapple until the chicken is cooked through and the pineapple is marked, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
