I love pineapple and whether it’s in a cake, pina colada, slow cooker Hawaiian Chicken, or in a savory sheet pan recipe, I am down. Especially on pizza but I know pineapple on pizza is a controversial topic.

This easy sheet pan dinner is anything but controversial because I think we can all agree that when you can make dinner on one pan, it’s ready in 15 minutes, and cleanup is as easy as tossing away a sheet of foil, you’ve got yourself a winner.

The chicken is moist and tender, the pineapple is juicy, and crisp-tender veggies add the right amount of crunch and texture. Naturally gluten-free and healthy is the name of this tune.

Marinating The Chicken

If you can marinate the chicken overnight, it will have the most flavor. If you forgot to plan ahead, marinate for as long as you can to ensure you get a nice dose of teriyaki infused flavor.

The teriyaki based marinade will naturally run over and coat the red bell peppers, sugar snap peas, and pineapple while baking and everything takes on an Asian inspired teriyaki tone.

I used 2 tablespoons Asian chili garlic sauce in the marinade and it adds enough kick and heat to make the dish interesting without being spicy, for our palettes. However, if you are very sensitive to spices or are making this for kids, I would reduce or possibly omit it.

Fresh Pineapple Vs. Canned

I recommend using fresh pineapple because it’s less mushy 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 could get a little soupy on the baking sheet. I haven’t tried it but this is my hunch. As written and tested with fresh pineapple, there is still a pretty good amount of juice that’s released and I wouldn’t want more.

If you have other vegetables on hand like mushrooms, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, or carrots, they would be great thrown in too.

Did you make this recipe?

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 1.25 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 2 tablespoons for drizzling over the pineapple, sugar snap peas, red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Asian chili garlic sauce, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh pineapple, diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1 red bell pepper, trimmed and diced into bite-sized pieces
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • about 2 green onions, sliced into thin rounds for garnishing
  • sesame seeds, optional for garnishing

Directions:

  1. To a large ziptop bag add the chicken, teriyaki, 2 tablespoons olive oil, honey, chili garlic sauce, ginger, 1 teaspoon pepper, seal bag, squish contents around to distribute evenly, and place bag in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes (overnight is best).
  2. Preheat oven to 475F and line a baking sheet with foil for easier cleanup.
  3. To the baking sheet, add the pineapple, sugar snap peas, bell pepper, evenly drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Using a slotted spoon or tongs, remove chicken from the bag and place it on the baking sheet (discard the bag with the marinade) and using a tongs or your hands, toss to combine it evenly with the other ingredients.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through; stir and flip once halfway through baking to ensure even cooking. Note – you are baking in a very hot oven, the chicken is cut into small pieces, and pineapple has a lot of natural sugars meaning things can go from under to overdone in 1 minute; keep a close eye on things starting at the 10 minute mark.
  6. Evenly garnish with the green onions and optional sesame seeds before serving. Recipe is best fresh but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 5 days.

  6. Delicious quick and easy recipe. I made my own teriyaki marinade and used broccoli, carrots and peppers in addition to the chicken and pineapple. I used a little less meat (0.7lb) and a bit less oil and honey and this meal fitted into our 5:2 fast day calorie allowance. It still fed me, husband, a six year old and a 2 year old, although I gave the kids some rice with theirs.
