Pineapple-Teriyaki-Chicken-Recipe This Hawaiian-inspired dish is great for exercising your pallet but not your stomach. It leaves you feeling good, not overstuffed, and it has great hints of pineapple, red pepper, and soy sauce. The chicken absorbs a lot of the juices from the marinade while it cooks making it not only juicy, but extremely flavorful. It’s perfect for a potluck, a summer dinner, or if you’re trying to find a new recipe. I usually top my pineapple chicken with cherries on toothpicks. Unfortunately, this time I didn’t have any, but I definitely recommend anyone making this recipe garnish with a bright red maraschino cherry. Pineapple chicken is extremely easy to make for beginners and it seems complicated because of all the great complex flavors, yet it’s as easy as mixing one sauce and putting chicken in a pan. Try this dish out now and perfect it by summer for all your outdoor get-togethers.  If you’re searching for more hearty comfort food, check out this chicken and dumplings recipe
