1. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, agave, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic. Place chicken in a shallow dish and cover with half of the marinade. Cover and let sit for 20-30 minutes.
2. While chicken is marinating, prepare salsa. Gently mix all ingredients together until combined. Cover and place in refrigerator to allow flavors to blend while chicken is grilling.
3. Bring grill to medium to medium-high heat. Brush grate with oil. Remove chicken from marinade and place on grill. Grill for 6-7 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Halfway through cooking time, brush with remaining marinade. Remove chicken from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before cooking into slices.
4. Serve chicken by itself or over a bed of rice. Top with a generous helping of pineapple salsa.
