Chicken with Pineapple Sauce

August 23, 2011

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 cornstarch
steamed 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.

  1. YUM! What a GREAT recipe! Cast Party Wednesday starts tonight at 12:00 midnight. I would love it if you came over tomorrow and shared some recipes with us.
    I hope to see you there!

  2. I am so excited to try this tonight! There were so many recipes that needed a slow cooker and I was really hoping I'd find a recipe that could be made in a couple of minutes. Thanks for sharing! <3
