Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons jerk seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. In a bowl, combine pineapple juice, jerk seasoning, soy sauce, vegetable oil, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, thyme, and cinnamon. Mix well.

  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.

  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting any excess drip off, and discard the marinade.

  4. Grill the chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear. During the last few minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with some reserved marinade for added flavor.

  5. Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Serve hot with grilled pineapple slices on the side.
