  1. Combine de-seeded peppers, red onion, garlic, lemon juice, water, smoked paprika, oregano, 1 tablespoon kosher salt, and black pepper in blender. Blend on high until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl or container and add raw chicken breasts. Toss chicken in sauce to fully coat and marinate. Refrigerate covered for a minimum of 1 hour. 
  3. Place 1/2 cup of pineapple cubes in a blender and blend until smooth. 
  4. Whisk together blended pineapple puree, lime juice, apple cider vinegar and remaining 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in vegetable oil until fully incorporated. Set dressing aside until needed.

Chicken breast should reach an internal temperature of 165° F before being removed from the grill. Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes on cutting board or resting rack prior to slicing. Slice cooked chicken in 1” thick slices.
