Simple Grilled Pineapple Chicken Tenders Recipe



  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins or strips (chicken tenders save some time, but it is a lot cheaper to make your own chicken strips out of boneless skinless chicken breasts)
  • Skewers


  1. If using wood soak skewers soap them in water for at least 30 minutes, the longer the better.
  2. in a small sauce pan mix together the pineapple juice, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Cook mixture over medium heat just short of a boil; remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool enough to handle. Place chicken tenders in a 1-gallon food, grade disposable bag, and pour the sauce mixture over the chicken in the bag. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat and prepare grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil cooking grates.
  4. Thread the chicken lengthwise through the sewers and grill for 5 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
