Easy and Wonderful Pineapple chicken
July 23, 2009 6:26pm CST
So tonight I wanted something different, quick, and easy. I had chicken, pineapples, rice, and other basic ingredients in my pantry & refrigerator so I browsed the recipe sites and found a basic recipe for pineapple chicken, and then added my own touches. This recipe feeds a family of 4. Here's what you will need 4 boneless skinless chicken per person 1 20oz can of pineapple (save the juice) 1 packet of Lipton Onion soup mix 1/4 cup Soy Sauce 1/4 cup Brown Sugar 1 tablespoon Minced Garlic 1 cup water Serve over rice (about 1/2 cup per person) First cook the chicken until done all the way through. Next cut it into strips or chunks. Mix your brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic into your pineapple juice, stir well. Then place your chicken back into your skillet and pour pineapple juice mixture over chicken. Let simmer about 5 mins. While that is simmering mix Lipton Onion Soup mix in water, then pour it into the skillet with the chicken. Let simmer about 10 mins then add pineapple. I used pineapple chunks, but I'm sure that you can use whatever you have on hand. Let simmer for about 10 to 15 more mins. While that is simmering cook your rice. Voila! You have a simple & delicious dinner.

I had tried something similar to that in my crock-pot however it was called Hawaiian chicken and no one but me really liked it. I guess I'll have to stick with pineapple either eaten plain, in a fruit salad, or in jello *LOL*
