  • 1 8 ounce can pineapple chunks in juice, drained, reserving liquid

  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoon ketchup

  • 2 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon sriracha

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds), sliced lengthwise into 4 strips each

  • 16 slices bacon

  • ¼ cup reduced sodium teriyaki sauce

  • ¼ cup ketchup

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • Hot cooked long grain white or brown rice (optional)

  • Chopped fresh cilantro


  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the pineapple juice (about 1/2 cup), soy sauce, 3 tablespoons ketchup, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, sriracha, 1 tablespoon ginger, and 4 cloves garlic. Transfer pineapple mixture to a gallon-size resealable plastic bag set in a large bowl. Add chicken; seal bag and gently toss to a coat. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

  2. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Wrap each chicken strip with a slice of bacon and thread onto a skewer.

  3. Coat a large grill pan with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, in batches, in the skillet for 12 minutes or until chicken is done (165°F), turning occasionally.

  4. Meanwhile, in a food processor combine pineapple chunks, teriyaki sauce, 1/4 cup ketchup, 1 clove garlic, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon grated ginger. Cover and process until smooth.

  5. Serve chicken with pineapple sauce and rice, if desired. Garnish with cilantro.
