Oil grill grates and preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush onions and pineapple with 1 tablespoon of the oil then season with salt and pepper. Grill, flipping once, until just charred in spots and softened, 6 to 8 minutes total; transfer to a plate. When cool enough to handle, roughly chop onions and pineapple and transfer to a bowl. Add tomatillo salsa, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper and toss gently to combine.

Brush chicken all over with remaining tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill, flipping once, until deep golden brown all over and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total.

Transfer chicken to a platter, spoon grilled pineapple salsa over the top and serve immediately.
