As I mention last week, for this grilled chicken I used some of the juice from the pineapple cheesecake to marinate these chicken breasts. The grilled chicken breast are very tender due to the pineapple juice which contain enzymes that break the protein in chicken, therefore tenderize the chicken and gives them a nice flavor as well.


3 chicken breasts split in half
3~4 cloves garlic mince
Β½ cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Parsley finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


Add all the above ingredients to the chicken breast and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Grill the chicken breast and serve hot.

Thank you for stopping by Simple Recipes and have a great week!

  32. I’ve been meaning to make some kind of dish with a pineapple marinade, thanks for sharing this rendition of a juicy dish!

  33. This looks very delicious. I always use pineapple chunks for cooking. I have to try with pineapple juice next time.

  34. Sounds like a great recipe. A little bit of a tropical twist with the pineapple juice–it looks so delicious and juicy!

  35. Oooh good to know about the pineapple juice tenderizing the chicken! I rarely cook chicken because it comes out so dry sometimes but maybe I just haven’t been cooking it in the right marinades!

  36. Great idea! I can imagine how tender and tasty it is!

  37. Grilled chicken looks very inviting to me:) Like the pineapple juice in it…must be tangy and nice.:)

  38. Oh gosh, this sounds lovely. I love that citrusy burst of pineapple juice, that isn’t too intense, but mellow and just sour enough, but overally sweet. I’d add a sprinkle of coconut and macadamia nuts just to go with the theme! πŸ˜‰

  39. This is such a terrific marinade for chicken! I think I’ll be making this over the weekend! Thanks! πŸ™‚

  40. Sounds like a wonderful combo of flavors. Love it!

  41. I have gotta try your method too to use the pineapple juice to tenderize the chicket fillets : )

  42. how lovely, juliana! i’ve often had pineapple-flavored pork but i haven’t tried the sweet, tangy stuff with chicken. i’m sure it’s delicious–thanks for the idea!

  43. Yum! I love marinating my chicken in citrus but it’s so rare for me to use pineapple juice. Next time for sure. Looks delicious!

  50. This dish sounds very Carribean! How interesting and delicious to marinate in pineapple juice!

  51. Oh! I can already taste the pineapple and garlic combination! I knew that pineapple can’t be used to make a gelatin because of the enzymes you mentioned but it’s great that they’ll tenderize meat. A bite of these warm flavors and I’ll forget that there’s still snow on the ground!
