I thought this was really good - and even my husband, who complained that he "doesn't like fruit in his food," cleaned his plate!! I browned the chicken first with some veggies (zuchinni, green peppers and onions), cut it up in strips and baked it in the sauce for 30 minutes. Yummy!
This dish was delicious! The changes I made were to use chicken tenders that I cut into chunks, stir fried with red pepper, sliced mushroom, snow pea pods & garlic(omitted garlic salt), added the rest of the ingredients (omitting the cornstarch/using half of soy as suggested) Topped with sliced scallions & served over brown rice.... so yummy. Thanks for posting, Redsie!
This is a great recipe!! I used low sodium soy sauce, & cut it down to 1/8 cup as others had recommended. I used splenda brown sugar & added 1/2 diced green pepper in with the pineapple just because it sounded good. My hubby was scooping up all the sauce so the 2 left over pieces of chicken are a bit bare. Next time I am going to double the sauce. We had this over brown rice. I will add this to my monthly rotation. I plugged this in to the Weight Watcher recipe builder with the changes I made & came up with 3 points per serving. This is very Yummy, thanks so much for posting this Redsie!! Always nice to find a low fat treat.
