Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Pineapple Boats Recipe

Hi guys! Happy Monday! Let’s start the new week with a fabulous recipe – pineapple boats???

How was your weekend? Mine was fabulous! Why? Because we finally got some nice weather (you may laugh, but temperatures in the  upper 70s are pretty awesome around here)! So we were able to spend some time outside and of course, do some grilling.

I made these Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Pineapple Boats yesterday.

Super cool looking loaded with delicious ingredients and very simple to make. You don’t even need to marinate the chicken. Just dip it in Teriyaki sauce and cook on the grill. Then add some more teriyaki sauce to it to glaze it.

I love pineapple and use it a lot in cooking. What I like about it is that I can also use it in savory dishes like these bowls. I made pineapple salsa, which requires just a few ingredients and tastes fresh.

I used brown rice for these pineapple bowls, but you can definitely use white or black rice or even quinoa.

I added some grilled mini red peppers, which are usually a staple for my summer barbecue. I serve them as a side for grilled meat.

To add some extra crunch and flavor I topped the bowls with some chopped Blue Diamond Toasted Coconut Almonds. As I’ve mentioned before I really like Blue Diamond Almonds and all the cool flavors and quality nuts they offer. I was pleased when I got to try the Toasted Coconut flavor!

The Toasted Coconut flavor is just perfect for summer! Grab it for a snack at a summer picnic, barbecue or add it to rice bowls, trail mixes or salads. It will bring the ultimate tropical flavor. I’m planning to use these almonds in other dishes all summer long!

I also topped the bowls with coconut flakes, but this is totally optional!

If you are excited about grilling season just as much as I am, you might want to try these bowls. They will be a hit at your next barbecue, I promise you!
