  • 1 tsp Kadoya sesame oil
  • 2 tsp freshly minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 3/4 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast (chopped)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1/3 cup La Choy Lite Soy Sauce
  • 1 medium-sized pineapple
  • 1 tbsp pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar

For The Jerk Marinade

  • 2 tsp water and
  • Thin green onions slices for garnish
  • 2 cups cooked rice (for serving)
  • Sesame seeds for topping
  • 2 tsp cornstarch


  • In a large bowl, mix together the chicken, ginger, vegetable oil, sesame oil, pineapple juice and soy sauce until everything is fully combined. Then set aside as you prepare the marinade.
  • To make the jerk marinade: Put the cornstarch with two teaspoons of water in a small bowl and stir until it forms a paste. Then add the brown sugar, garlic and green onions to the marinade, stirring until it's thoroughly blended.
  • Pour the jerk marinade over the chicken mixture and mix with care until everything is perfectly integrated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Peel and core the pineapple, collecting any juices that are released during the process. Cut up the pineapple into 8 wedges and place them in an oven safe dish with all of the collected juices.
  • Place chicken mixture onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spreading it out evenly with a spatula or spoon. Bake inside preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked through and looks golden brown.
  • Serve the spicy jerk chicken with succulent pineapple wedges in a bowl over cooked rice and garnish it with freshly cut green onions and sesame seeds if desired.


• For extra flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon of ground allspice to the marinade.
• You can also add 2 tablespoons of honey to the marinade for a sweeter version of this dish.
• Try using boneless skinless thighs instead of breasts for an even juicier result.
• If you don’t have time to marinate, simply season the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder and increase the cooking time to 35-40 minutes.
