Teriyaki flavor permeates the meat in this simple chicken dinner recipe. When grilled, the chicken has a fantastic smoky, tangy, and sweet flavor. Grilling the pineapple caramelizes the sugars and makes it even sweeter. Sprinkling sesame seeds over the grilled chicken and pineapple make for a beautiful dish. This dinner is so delicious your family will be fighting for leftovers.
