Whenever I think of pineapple I think of paradise! Sitting on a beach drinking Pina Coladas all day long. I decided to bring a fresh Pineapple home and prepare Pineapple Chicken with Rice for my family.
I was recently in the store and I was walking through the produce section and noticed that the pineapples were on sale. I thought to myself I need to make a pineapple dish and I bought a couple to experiment with. I did some research on different types of pineapple dishes and this was my end result. It was so delicious and I even served it to my family that were visiting from out of town. They loved it!
You can also hollow out the pineapple and serve the meal in that! It will be a hit I promise!
Pineapple Chicken with Rice
- 2 pounds Chicken Breast
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil extra virgin
- 1/4 cup Pineapple Juice
- 2 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce may use regular
- 2 tbsp Chicken Broth
- 2 tbsp Hoisin Sauce
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar may use less if you don't want it too sweet
- 1 clove Garlic minced
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1 cup diced pineapple
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the pineapple juice, soy sauce, chicken stock, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, garlic and cornstarch. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the mixture has reduced to about 1 cup and is the consistency of thick syrup. Set the sauce aside.
Add the olive oil to a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and season it with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken, stirring, until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off any liquids then add the sauce to the pan and stir until combined. Add the pineapple and cook, stirring, for an additional 1 minute.
Serve over rice
