THE POWER OF PAPAIN: Pineapple contains papain, a potent digestive enzyme that aids the body in digestion by making it easier to break down proteins. This nutrient-packed fruit has also been found to help reduce pain and inflammation in the body.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp sambal oelek, or other chile paste
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, optional
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 6 5-oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Preparation

1. In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients except chicken. Transfer marinade to a large zip-top freezer bag and add chicken. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible. Massage chicken mixture to evenly distribute marinade; place bag flat on a freezer shelf. Freeze for up to 2 months.

2. To cook: Remove bag of frozen chicken from freezer and place on a large dish; thaw in fridge, 24 hours.

3. Preheat indoor grill to medium-high. Remove chicken from marinade; discard remaining marinade. Grill chicken, turning once, until no longer pink inside and an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of chicken reads 165°F, 15 to 18 minutes. (Alternatively, if you don’t have an indoor grill, you can broil 7 to 9 minutes per side.)
