Hawaiian chicken with pineapple — the details,

I love this chicken recipe because it is so simple to prepare. First, you brown the chicken and place the chicken pieces in a baking dish. Using the same pan you browned the chicken in, add onions, bell pepper, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry for 1 minute over medium heat.

For the sauce, combine maple syrup, tamari sauce and tapioca starch until smooth. Add sauce and pineapples to the wok with the vegetables and briefly cook until the sauce starts to thicken. Pour the pineapple sauce over the chicken and bake until the chicken is tender. Nothing to it…right? Bringing some tropical flavours to everyday cooking is always a bit hit at our home. However, this stunning chicken dish is impressive enough for when the company is coming!

Pineapple is surprisingly tasty in savoury dishes such as this baked chicken dinner. The tropical fruit gives this Hawaiian dish a zesty fresh flavour rather than sweet, setting this chicken recipe apart from most. This chicken with pineapple dish goes beautifully with our saffron rice with mint and caramelized onions
