Grilled Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken in Foil

Grilled Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken in Foil has the most amazing sweet and tangy pineapple barbecue sauce!  It grills to perfection with sweet pineapple and delicious summer veggies!


A tragedy happened in our house and our grill died.  You all know by now how much I love that thing.  Summer BBQs happen at our house quite regularly.  At first I thought it was the propane tank but come to find out the hose had a leak in it!  Gasp.

But thanks to Amazon Prime I had a grill delivered to my front porch in just two days and I was back to grilling in no time!


One of our favorite things to grill this summer have been foil packets.  They are the perfect serving for each member of the family.  Each little packet is complete with tender and flavorful meat and veggies.

I loved this Hawaiian BBQ recipe here on the blog so much that I decided to turn it into a delicious foil packet.  It turned out so delicious and the flavor was amazing.  The sweet and tangy pineapple barbecue sauce smothered on the chicken cooked with delicious pineapple and summer veggies.

Every single one of us loved these delicious foil packets.  I know your family is going to love them too!

Grilled Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken in Foil has the most amazing sweet and tangy pineapple barbecue sauce! It grills to perfection with sweet pineapple and delicious summer veggies!
Serves: 4
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup bbq sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • 1 15-ounce can pineapple slices (including juice)
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into cubes
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • green onions, for garnish
  1. Heat grill to medium heat. Cut 4 sheets, enough to wrap the chicken and veggies, of heavy duty foil. Place chicken on center of aluminum foil and divide the veggies and add 2-3 pineapple slices into each packet.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together bbq sauce, juice from the can of pineapple slices, soy sauce, and garlic. Spread about 2 Tablespoons of the sauce on the chicken and make sure to reserve about ¼ cup.
  3. Place chicken packets onto grill and grill for 13-15 minutes flipping at about 7 minutes.To serve carefully open packets, baste with reserve sauce and garnish with green onions.

  2. Harriet Clark says:

  3. hey girl this looks so yummy!

  4. Catherine says:

    It look so good and I wuold like to try. Can I use oven or my airfryer for this recipe?

  5. Carl Choiniere says:

    It was delicious, and the smell while it’s cooking made my mouth water the whole time! I was afraid the chicken would not be cooked through so I butterflied the breasts, and in 15 mins everything was ready. Thanks to the sauce (I used Kraft Chicken & Rib as my bbq sauce) and the packet the chicken was super-moist. I served rice family-style with it, so that everyone could scoop some into their unfolded packets. This is definitely a do-again in our family!

  6. Brandon Burton says:

    The chicken really needs some type of marinade before it is put on the grill. I give this recipe 3 stars but for some reason it shows up stars.

  7. Can u cook in oven with foil pack instead of grilling

  8. Everything was going great, until, I realized I was supposed to CLOSE the packets before putting them on the grill! Please add that to your recipe! (My fingertips are burnt.)

  9. maria cervantes says:

    can you cook in oven?

  10. After reading everyone else’s comments, maybe putting an oven recipe would be awesome? Because I was wondering the same thing…

  11. Sybrina Chapman says:

    I am also interested in an oven recipe! It’s my turn to cook lunch for the office soon and would love to use this recipe!

  12. I love all foil packs recipes and I have always used the oven 375 works all the time unless it’s a thicker cut of meat I just check it every so often. This was amazing loved it!

  13. Patricia says:

    Does anyone one know how many WW Smart points one packet would be?

  14. What’s the Calories and Calories from fat on this recipe? I have to mark this down to keep track of everything on my Fitbit. TIA! ☺

  15. Could I marinate this in some of the sauce for at least a night? Taking it camping and want less as possible to do at the campsite!

  16. Can i do this recipe in the oven? If so How long and what would the ove temp for this? Thank you so very much Alyssa love you blog.

    • Yes!! I would suggest 375* for 30-45 minutes. Every oven is different though so I would check on it around 20 minutes! I haven’t tried it in the oven yet. You will have to let me know how it turns out!! Thank you for following along with me!! I hope this works out great in the oven!
