I absolutely love chicken cooked on the grill. We have been eating it so often that I am starting to try new sides to keep it fun and new. I came across this recipe for pineapple rice on Our Best Bites. The pineapple give the rice the perfect amount of sweetness and the cilantro adds a wonderful flavor. The best part is my kids love it as well.
Teriyaki Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Rice
4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, pounded thin
2 cups store bought Teriyaki Marinade
2 1/2 cups cooked white rice
2 Tbsps butter
Juice of 1 lime
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained.
½ Cup chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Place the chicken in a plastic bag and cover with the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
In a large bowl, mix the warm, cooked rice with the butter, lime juice, pineapple and cilantro. Add salt and pepper if necessary.
Heat your grill to medium high. Remove chicken from the marinade and discard any leftover marinade. Cook chicken until no longer pink, about 5 – 7 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the breast. Let rest for a few minutes, then slice and serve over rice.
