I am still in a tropical mood this week. It may be the humidity outside {in addition to the crazy heat}, or maybe I need to take a trip to Hawaii!! I don’t think that I have ever met anyone that does not like pineapple. It’s tart, sweet, and good for you…what’s not to like? Grilled pineapple is even better, and makes the perfect addition to these delicious Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Bowls…..

I needed to remake my Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich to take new photos, and figured that I could get away with creating two recipes with the same ingredients…at the same time. So the instructions/images might not match exactly what I am telling you to do…just go with it. 🙂

How to make Grilled Teriyaki Bowls:

I started with my Homemade Teriyaki Sauce (or you can substitute store bought), which I marinated the chicken breasts in for one hour…..

I pounded them out between two sheets of plastic wrap until they were an even thickness. Then I just cut them into the sized that I needed {2 bigger for the sandwich and 3 slightly smaller for the bowls}.

While the chicken was marinating, I created a grill pan out of heavy duty aluminum foil by folding over all four sides then poking holes in the center with a metal skewer…..

Toss the carrots and bell pepper strips with olive oil, salt and pepper. Add them to the pan and set aside.

Heat a gas grill to Medium heat. Place pan with carrots and bell pepper on one side of the grill.

Place chicken breasts on the other side of the grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip over and cook for an additional 4 to 5 minutes, until cooked all the way through…..

Remove the chicken and allow to set for 10 minutes.

Brush pineapple spears with olive oil and place on the grill. Cook on both sides to create marks and heat through…..

The round slices are for the sandwiches. 🙂 Remove pineapple and set aside.

Scoop steamed rice into a bowl and top with carrots, bell pepper strips, and steamed broccoli.

Slice chicken into strips and place in bowl, then drizzle with additional teriyaki sauce. Cut pineapple spears into chunks and place on top of chicken…..

Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions and serve with chop sticks…or forks, whichever you prefer.

Sooo….why didn’t I grill the broccoli? Because I didn’t think about it. I will give that a try next time, lol
