Pineapple Chicken Salad


  • 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

  • Few dashes of your favourite hot sauce

  • A large handful of fresh mint or basil leaves


  • 1.

    Preheat your BBQ grill to high.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile put the pineapple slices into a large bowl and toss with some olive oil and salt and pepper. 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. Grill the chicken until it's cooked through, another 8-10 minutes. Flip pineapple and onions when they are well caramelized and have distinct grill marks. Let everything rest for a few minutes off the grill then chop into large pieces and toss into a festive salad bowl. Season with the lime juice, soya sauce and hot sauce and toss well with the herbs.
