Ingredients

  • 6 (6-ounce) boneless chicken breasts
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 fresh pineapple, topped and skinned, cut lengthwise away from core into 6 wedges
  • 2 limes
Fajita seasoning:
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil, such as canola or grapeseed
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 cup (about 4 ounces) white mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons green peppercorns, jarred or canned
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1 cup demi-glace (brown sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives

Directions

Heat the grill.

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

Place pineapple wedges on a utility platter and squeeze lime juice over them. Mix together salt, ground black pepper, cumin, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder to make fajita seasoning. Sprinkle fajita seasoning on the pineapple.

Grill the chicken until cooked through and the pineapple until the outside begins to caramelize.

While the chicken and pineapple are grilling, put the butter and oil in a large skillet and turn the heat to medium-high. Add the shallots and mushrooms and cook stirring occasionally, until they are soft, about 3 minutes. Add the green peppercorns and cook for 30 seconds. Add the mustard, cream and demi-glace and cook, stirring for 30 seconds.

Spoon sauce over chicken, with pineapple as an accompaniment. Garnish with chopped chives.
