Baked Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken
I love pineapple, no matter if it's in a cake, piña colada, slow cooker Hawaiian chicken or in a tasty sliced bread recipe, I am depressed. Especially in pizza, but I know that pineapple in pizza is a controversial topic.
This easy teriyaki chicken skillet recipe is anything but controversial, because I think we can all agree that when you can make dinner in a pan, it's done in 15 minutes, and cleaning is as easy as throwing away a sheet of paper. aluminum, you 'got yourself a winner.
Baked pineapple teriyaki chicken is moist and tender, pineapple is juicy, and crispy, tender vegetables add just the right amount of crispness and texture. Naturally gluten-free and healthy is the name of this song.
How to make teriyaki chicken in a pan
Add the teriyaki chicken marinade ingredients to a large zip-lock bag and place them in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes (overnight is best). While the chicken is marinating, preheat the oven and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
To the baking sheet, add the chopped pineapple, peas, and bell pepper, and drizzle with olive oil. Place the marinated chicken on the baking sheet and stir to combine evenly with the other ingredients. At this point, you should discard the used marinade bag.
Bake the pineapple teriyaki chicken until the meat is fully cooked. Be sure to stir and flip the chicken once halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking.
I like to decorate this easy teriyaki chicken with green onions and sesame seeds, but you can leave them out if you like. This pineapple teriyaki chicken is delicious on rice or as is.

Tips for the best teriyaki chicken
If you can marinate the chicken overnight, it will have more flavor. If you forgot to plan ahead, marinate as long as you can to make sure you get a good dose of teriyaki-infused flavor.
The teriyaki marinade will spread naturally and coat the red bell peppers, sugar peas, and pineapple as it bakes and everything takes on an Asian-inspired teriyaki hue.
I used 2 tablespoons of garlic and Asian chili sauce in the marinade and add enough kick and heat to make the dish interesting without being spicy for our popsicles. However, if you are very sensitive to spices or are doing this for kids, I would narrow it down or possibly omit it.
Also, I recommend using fresh pineapple because it is less soft and less juicy than canned. Normally, juicy fruit is a good thing, but in this situation I feel like canned pineapple will release too much juice while baking and things might get a little thick on the baking sheet.
I haven't tried, but this is my hunch. As written and tested with fresh pineapple, there is still a pretty good amount of juice that is released and I wouldn't want any more.
If you have other vegetables on hand like mushrooms, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, or carrots, they would be great, too.
