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.
Very good. We cut chicken into chunks and simmered in the sauce. I would make it again.
I love this recipe!!! I do modify it though. Instead of brown sugar I add a couple packets of Splenda and instead of soy sauce I use liquid amino braggs, as its much healthier. My hubby is a huge fan of pineapple so I double the pineapple and I usually add much more chicken! I also don't use any cornstarch, i just throw all the ingredients in the dish and throw in the oven! It's so delicious!!
We enjoyed this dish; DH said 4 stars, until I told him 5 WW points. He doesn't 'understand' the points system, but does get the significance. :) I had some pineapple chunks to use, which I whirred with my hand blender, to more closely resemble crushed pineapple. I did use a little cornstarch, to aid in thickening, and I may have used a touch too much soy sauce, as I was eye-balling it. After reading some of the other reviews, I included crushed red pepper, for a little heat and some chopped peanuts, for crunch. This was served over white rice - Pretty tasty dish! Thanks for sharing, Redsie.
great! I used 1 can chunk pineapple and 3 Tbl. brown sugar and light soy sauce. Next time I'll cut back to about an 1/8 c. of the light soy sauce. My kids loved it! It was great with wild rice and asparagas. I'll definitely make this again!
Made this a few weeks ago, but forgot to rate it. Sorry! This was really tasty, although I think next time I'll add some crushed red pepper for some heat. Will be making again!
This was very tasty! I followed the recipe except used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Will make again. Thanks!
I have an almost identical recipe from Taste of Home. Differences--6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (I used thighs, instead) and two 8 oz. cans crushed pineapple. Finished by sprinkling minced chives on top. Makes 6 servings. Everything else was the same. This was a very easy, tasty weeknight dinner. Thanks
