Ingredients Needed to Make BBQ Pineapple Chicken

I love a meal that only requires a few ingredients. You really only need a few simple ingredients to make this fantastic meal. Here’s what you should add to your grocery list:

  • chicken breasts or skinless chicken thighs
  • cubed fresh pineapple or pineapple rings
  • BBQ sauce, I used honey bbq (Sweet Baby Ray is also a great flavor)
  • salt and pepper

Feel free to add bell peppers, red onion, and any of your favorite vegetables to the baking dish to make a sheet pan dinner. The sweet pineapple gives everything in the oven a delicious flavor. If you have leftover pineapple from your open can of pineapple chunks, eat them with any other meal or as a treat.

How to Make Pineapple Barbecue Chicken

For best results, bake your chicken in the oven. It bakes well in a casserole dish, baking pan, or on baking sheets, making a juicy chicken meal.

  1. Place chicken breasts in a greased 9×13 inch baking pan.
  2. Top the chicken with Barbecue Sauce.
  3. Top with Fresh cubed pineapple chunks.
  4. Sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until cooked through.

The Pineapple BBQ Chicken will be a hit with adults and children alike. It’s an easy baking sheet recipe that can be customized based on your favorite veggies and sauces. Add some delicious summer veggies and, you are all set.

Can I Make BBQ Chicken in the Crock Pot

You can absolutely make this dish in the crockpot. Instead of setting a timer for 30 minutes, put your ingredients in the crockpot on low for 6 to 8 hours or medium-high heat for 4 hours. The pineapple slices will add tons of flavor to everything in the pot and dinner will be ready super easy after work. Letting the chicken cook all day will make it super flavorful.

How Long Does it Take Chicken on a BBQ Grill?

If you wish you make this meal on a hot grill, just add your toppings while grilling or let the chicken marinate in the juices for a while before placing the chicken on the grill. Grill your chicken breasts over direct heat for about 20 minutes. Be sure to flip them halfway through and check the internal temperature before serving to make sure it is cooked completely.

Make This Recipe in Foil Packets

Try making this recipe in foil packets! Small portion-sized baked chicken foil packets are a great way to customize your family’s plates. Let everyone add their favorite veggies to the chicken, barbecue sauce, and pineapple. Place everything in the oven and serve directly onto their plates.

Can I Use This Recipe On Pork Chops?

Absolutely use this recipe on pork chops! Nothing pairs better with pork chops than fruit (in my opinion). Follow this same simple recipe with pork chops instead of chicken, and you’ll have a fantastic dinner ready in no time. Cook the pork chops in the oven or on the grill based on your personal preference.
