So this morning I told K-toast that I was going to make a meal he really enjoyed. He glared at me and made a nasty face. That kinda sorta frustrated me, so I decided I wasn’t going to make something he loved that everyone else only felt so-so about. SO I went out on a limb and attempted a chinese-ish dish. (I made the kiddos home made chicken strips haha.)
Katie’s Ginger-Pineapple Chicken
What you’ll need:
1 package of chicken breast tenders, washed and cut into bite sized pieces
5-6 tablespoons of pineapple juice (I bought ours at Uwajimaya)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2-3 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger root (Safeway produce section, you will have to grate on your own) – DO NOT USE GROUND GINGER
2 tablespoons of honey
4 tablespoons soy sauce (I used Organic soy sauce from Uwajimaya)
Mix together all of the ingredients and put in a bowl. Toss in bite sized chicken pieces and let marinate for 2-3 hours (or overnight, 1 hour works too.)
Once you’ve let the chicken marinate toss a tiny TINY bit of peanut, canola, or the oil of your choice in a skillet. Once it’s warmed then toss in the entire mixture. Cook until sauce changes color and chicken is cooked all the way through.
Serve over rice, with some wine & you have a delicious quick easy meal! Feel like maybe something should be added? Changed? Try it out and let me know!!
