Ingredients

    4 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts
    2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
    2 1/4 teaspoons salt-free jamaican jerk seasoning , divided (recommended -- The Spice Hunter)
    salt
    1 (20 ounce) can no-sugar added pineapple slices , in juice with juice reserved (recommended -- Dole)
    1 tablespoon brown sugar



Tips

NOTE: I couldn't find salt free Jamaican Spice in the ingredients listing so had to use regular, therefore the sodium content is higher than it would be if you used salt free.

Directions

Preheat grill or cast iron grill pan to medium-high heat.

Remove any excess fat from chicken and rinse under cold water. Pat dry with paper towels. Use a pastry brush to brush with olive oil and season with 1 1/2 teaspoons jerk seasoning and salt, if desired. Set aside.

Drain pineapple slices and reserve juice. Season both sides of pineapple slices with 1/2 teaspoon of jerk seasoning; set aside.

In small saucepan, bring reserved pineapple juice, remaining 1/4 teaspoon jerk seasoning, and brown sugar to a boil over high heat. Reduce liquid by 1/2, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Just before grilling, oil grate. Place chicken breasts on grate and grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove to platter and tent with foil.

Place pineapple slices on grate and grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side until grill marks appear and pineapple is heated through.

Serve chicken breasts with pineapple slices and warm sauce.

NOTE: Chicken may also be broiled 4 to 6 inches from heat source for 6 to 8 minutes per side. Broil pineapple 1 to 2 minutes per side




Serving Size: makes 4 servings (1 chicken breast and 2 lices of pineapple and 2 T sauce)
