Pineapple Chicken

"This is so good!" That was about the only thing that was said during this entire meal! We were all loving it so much that there was not a lot of talking, just a lot of eating! :) I am not a big fan of frying chicken and the mess it makes, but this recipe was so worth it that I will definitely make it again!

Pineapple Chicken
(recipe found at
Serves: 4 (I doubled this recipe and had 6 people eating, we didn't have a lot left!)

2 chicken breasts
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoon cornstarch
corn or canola oil for frying

1 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstartch + 1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon soy sauce

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. 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.

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. 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.
