Waikiki Beach Chicken and Pineapple

Waikiki Beach Chicken and Pineapple created by Tinkerbell

The sauce for this dish is somewhat like a sweet and sour sauce, but has a brighter flavor and is easier to make. I have made this many times and always gets rave reviews. Rumor has it this dish was once on the menu at a popular restaurant on Waikiki Beach.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and spray a 9x13 baking pan or dish with cooking spray.
  • Set aside.
  • Trim any visible fat from chicken breasts and dry thoroughly with paper towels.
  • Coat chicken with flour, shaking off any excess.
  • Place chicken in prepared dish and place in oven while preparing sauce.
  • Drain juice from pineapple into a medium saucepan and set pineapple chunks aside.
  • Add the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, and bouillon cube to saucepan.
  • Combine cornstarch and water and blend until smooth.
  • Add to saucepan and bring to boil over medium-high heat, whisking slowly to dissolve sugar.
  • Boil for two minutes, whisking vigorously.
  • The sauce should thicken and turn clear after boiling for about 1 minute or so.
  • Pour sauce over chicken and lower oven temperature to 350°F.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, remove stem and seeds from green pepper and remove white veins.
  • Slice into rings and set aside.
  • Distribute pineapple chunks and pepper rings evenly over chicken and bake 20 more minutes.
  • To serve, place about 2/3 cup rice on plate and top with a chicken breast.
  • Top with plenty of the pineapple and pepper rings and drizzle a generous amount of the sauce over all.
  • Serve at once.
  • NOTE: Be sure to use Heinz apple cider vinegar, not a store brand in the sauce.
  • Using any other brand will make the sauce foam up and boil over in addition to having a poor flavor.

    I love this recipe but found out that I am allergic to pineapple. Is there a substitution that could be made for the pineapple?
