Usually, people think that teriyaki sauce goes back to the Japanese tradition, however, it is not like that. Initially, Japanese people used to mix the pineapple juice with the soy sauce to have this dark sauce, but in fact, Teriyaki sauce is an American tradition( Hawaiian in specific). So in this dish, you are going to mix both the American and Japanese traditions using the Hawaiian sauce and the pineapple. Check out below the detailed recipe with notes to be taken into consideration.

Nutrition Facts about this plate:
- Chicken breasts are a good source of proteins that make you feel full faster( Some people cook this plate with thighs but i prefer breast because it has lower fat %)
- Pineapples are full of water and fibers which is good for a better digestion
- You can replace white rice with brown rice for more fibers
Regarding food safety:
-I prefer you separate the cutting boards that you are using, so use one for raw meat/chicken and one for vegetables to avoid contamination or any bacterial infection
- NEVER wash your meat or chicken before cooking to avoid bacterial contamination
- ALWAYS wash your vegetables with vinegar and salt.
