This is one my personal favorite dinners to make at home. I love that it tastes a lot like Chinese take out, but at a fraction of the cost. Also, most Chinese restaurants would deep fry the chicken, so this version is definitely a lot healthier. You could certainly add steamed broccoli to make the dish go even farther.
Chicken with Pineapple Sauce
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon EVOO
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
6 oz crushed pineapple in juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon cornstarchsteamed white rice
In a deep skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook chicken in olive oil until cooked through, remove from pan and set aside. Combine brown sugar, pineapple in juice, soy sauce, garlic salt, and ginger in skillet on low heat. Stir in cornstarch and simmer about 5 minutes until starting to thicken.
Add chicken back to skillet and cook an additional 10 minutes until sauce thickens more and chicken is heated through. Serve over white rice.
