Grilled teriyaki chicken with pineapple can be made with just a few pantry staples. Although it’s delicious when made with canned pineapple, fresh pineapple and its juice can easily be used in its place. Serve with brown rice and snow peas.
- 1/3 cup dry sherry (see Tip)
- 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
Whisk the sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar and the 1/3 cup pineapple juice in a large bowl. Add the pineapple rings and chicken and gently stir to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium-high.
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.
Whisk the reserved marinade and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook, whisking, until reduced and thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the butter. Serve the chicken and pineapple drizzled with the sauce.
Tip: <br>Sherry is a type of fortified wine originally from southern Spain. Don&#8217;t use the "cooking sherry" sold in many supermarkets&#8212;it can be surprisingly high in sodium. Instead, purchase dry sherry that&#8217;s sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store. <br /> <br />You&#8217;ll need about 1 1/2 pounds untrimmed boneless, skinless chicken thighs to serve four people. For recipes that call for one large thigh per person, buy them at the butcher counter; prepackaged thighs vary dramatically in size. Ask for four 6-ounce boneless, skinless thighs. To trim them well, we like to use kitchen shears to snip the fat away from the meat. After trimming, you&#8217;ll have four 4-ounce portions. <br /> <br />To oil the grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill). When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray.
