Grill Time:
13 mins
Total Time:
28 mins


  • 4 5-6 ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 cup barbecue sauce

  • 1 15 ounce can pineapple slices, undrained

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced

  • 1 red sweet pepper, coarsely chopped

  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced

  • Sliced green onion


  1. Preheat grill to medium. Cut 12 by 15-inch sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil. Place one chicken breast on the center of each piece of aluminum foil.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together bbq sauce, juice from the can of pineapple slices, soy sauce, and garlic. Spread about 2 tablespoons of the sauce on each of the chicken breasts, making sure to reserve about 1/2 cup sauce. Divide sweet pepper and zucchini between each packet. Place 2-3 pineapple slices on top of each packet.

  3. Bring up two opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold. Fold remaining edges to completely enclose chicken, leaving space for steam to build.

  4. Place chicken packets onto grill and grill for 13 to 15 minutes, turning halfway. To serve carefully open packets, baste with reserved sauce and garnish with green onions.
