  1. Blend the pineapple, jalapeño and garlic in the blender until you get a uniform cream. Pour it on a baking dish. Add the orange juice, lime juice, soya sauce, chopped coriander, chopped basil, black pepper, and grated lime rind.

  2. Stir it all. Then add the chicken breasts. Make sure they are completely covered with the mix, cover and place in the fridge.

  3. Keep them in the fridge for 4 hours to marinate properly, and turn the chicken breasts around every now and then.

  4. Take the chicken breasts out of the baking dish and slightly remove the extra sauce from the breasts using a rubber spatula.
