Ingredients

1/4
cup teriyaki baste and glaze
1/4
cup pineapple preserves
1
tablespoon lime juice
2
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
1/2
teaspoon black and red pepper blend
1/4
teaspoon salt
4

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small saucepan, mix teriyaki glaze, pineapple preserves and lime juice. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until preserves are melted. Stir in cilantro. Set aside.
  • 2 Sprinkle all sides of each chicken breast with pepper blend and salt. Place on grill over medium heat. Cook 10 minutes, turning once.
