Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken
Pinterest is a wonderful resource for finding everything from fashion trends and hair styles to interior design and recipes. I was looking for something new to cook for the family last week, when I came across this recipe for Brown Sugar Pineapple Chicken. The photos on pinterest were beautiful and the recipe sounded pretty easy, so I decided to give it a try.
Unlike a lot of the failed pinterest attempts I see floating around, this one was a success! The sauce is definitely a little spicy so I made the kiddies a basic grilled chicken and only served the glazed chicken to the adults.
Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try:
2 pounds chicken tenderloins OR skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup CANNED pineapple juice
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon) packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1-2 teaspoons Asian chili sauce (like Sambal Oelek)
1 tsp EACH salt, garlic pwdr, ginger pwdr
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
chopped green onions
additional Asian chili sauce to taste
