BBQ Chicken with Pineapple Bacon Salsa

Jump to Recipe

This recipe has Josh written ALL over it, can you tell? I will give you a hint…BACON! Josh’s favorite pizza is his BBQ Chicken Deluxe Pizza-which has barbecue chicken, bacon, pineapple, jalapeños, and red onion. He recently created a twist on his favorite pizza-BBQ Chicken with Pineapple Bacon Salsa. Yep, he put bacon in salsa. The flavors are vary similar to his favorite pizza, but in summer form. This recipe is perfect for grilling season!

This recipe is super easy. Use your favorite barbecue sauce to coat the chicken, grill to perfection, and serve with fresh pineapple bacon salsa. The salsa is refreshing with a hint of smokiness from the bacon. It goes perfectly with the BBQ chicken. Josh also likes to serve Bush’s Smokehouse Tradition Grillin’ Beans on the side. The beans bring out the smoky flavor of the bacon even more. They are a great side dish to this summer meal.

Sunday is Father’s Day and this BBQ Chicken with Pineapple Bacon Salsa would be a great way to celebrate Dad. Get out the grill and get cooking!

  1. WOW this has to be one of the most amazing salsas ever. I would make a big batch and eat it with everything… sandwiches, fish, this bbq chicken… 🙂

  2. I think that salsa would be great BEside almost anything, but I’m thinking I would use up any leftover (as if!) INside a turkey wrap.

  3. YUMMY! My husband and I just bought our first house, which means we can get our first grill. I know we’ll both love this. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Made this last night. What an awesome recipe. Served with the Smokehouse beans and grilled squash. All of the favors came together so nicely. We will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

  5. This was perfect, delicious and easy. The flavor combinations in the salsa were outstanding. Thinking of making again during our family beach vacation!

  6. I made this for the first time and was blown away by the different flavours all mixed into one salsa! This has been added to the “definitely make again” list. Paired it with homemade baked sweet potato fries and a salad. I’m always happy with any recipes I get from your website!
