I was craving some teriyaki chicken last weekend, and wanted to try my hand at making my own teriyaki sauce.  I also wanted to use the pineapples that I had just bought, and thought that they would go great with this dish.  This was tasty, and the teriyaki sauce was really good! I bet it would pair well with beef and fish as well.

I used bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs for this recipe.  But if you prefer skinless-boneless, or breast instead, they would work well! I think I will try these on wings next time.

This Paleo Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken had a great flavor and was delicious! And no soy, which is great since I’m allergic! The pineapple adds a nice natural sweetness to the flavor profile.  This was also fairly easy to make, and if you know me you know I love easy recipes!
