Chinese Pineapple Chicken Recipes


DSC_0051I call this dish Pineapple chicken. It’s similar to lemon chicken, or sweet and sour chicken sans red food coloring. Once you make it you’ll be surprised how easy it is to mimic Chinese take-out food. Except I think it tastes fresher and a bit healthier than take-out. Serve it with a side of steamed white rice and some veggies. Be sure to marinate the chicken beforehand like I mention in the recipe; it makes the chicken tastier and more tender.

Pineapple Chicken

(makes 4 servings)

Ingredients for Chicken:

2 chicken breasts
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 egg
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 Tbsp. flour

DSC_0009Ingredients for Sauce:

1 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch + 1 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. soy sauce

1) In a bowl, cut 2 chicken breasts into chunks. Add soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper and egg. Cover and let marinate in fridge for at least 2 hours.

DSC_00102) Add flour and cornstarch to chicken to create a thick batter. Heat oil in large frying pan on medium high heat. Add chicken and fry until chicken is browned, turning if necessary. Remove chicken from oil onto plate lined with paper towels.

3) In a medium saucepan, combine pineapples and pineapple juice. Bring to a boil then add brown sugar and soy sauce, and simmer for 5 minutes.

4) In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water into a paste. Pour into sauce and stir until thick enough to coat a spoon. Pour chicken pieces into saucepan and mix until thoroughly coated. Serve with steamed white rice.
