Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

Friday, November 10, 2017

So let me first start by saying that there is no chinese food that my kids will not eat. From General Tso's Chicken to Beef and Broccoli to this Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken, they all clean their plates. There are weeks when I experiment with new recipes every night of the week. And some of those recipes are duds. We have been known to resort to pitching whole meals and making soup and sandwiches. Such is the life of a foodie . So when the kids have had enough of weird recipes , I make it up to them with homemade chinese. With lots of rice. And chop sticks. And fortune cookies ;) This chicken dish is a tried and true dish that is easy to make and brings smiles and clean plates. Double the sauce ingredients if you like sauce on your rice (like me).

Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

1 1/2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 T olive oil
kosher salt, to taste
fresh black pepper, to taste

  1. I do love a good chinese and this sounds wonderful, I would probably have to find a recipe for the sauce as we don't have a local chinese supermarket. Thanks for sharing
