Pineapple Chicken Salad

Yield: 4 – 6 servings


  • 1 pineapple, skinned, cored and sliced into 1” thick slices
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and sliced into 1” thick slices
  • 2 to 4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Few dashes soya sauce

Preheat your BB grill to high.


  1. Meanwhile put the pineapple slices into a large bowl and toss with some olive oil and salt and pepper. 
  2. Add the onions and gently and lightly oil them without separating them into rings. In a separate bowl, oil the chicken and season it with salt and pepper. 
  3. Lightly oil the pre-heated grill and place the pineapple slices, onion and chicken breasts onto it.
  4. Grill the chicken until it’s cooked through, another 8-10 minutes. 
  5. Flip pineapple and onions when they are well caramelized and have distinct grill marks.
  6. Let everything rest for a few minutes off the grill then chop into large pieces and toss into a festive salad bowl.
  7. Season with the limejuice, soya sauce and hot sauce and toss well with the herbs.
