Baked Pineapple Chicken

Baked Pineapple Chicken

For some reason, Sunday’s has turned into “Stir-Fry” days at our house. It’s a meal that can quickly be whipped together and I love that for the most part (other than the rice) it is a one pot dish.

A couple Sunday’s ago I stayed home from church because my little guy wasn’t feeling well. The house was still a bit chilly and I wanted to put something in the oven to help warm it up. So I decided to bake our stir fry instead. My husband loved it and we will definitely be making it again.

Baked Pineapple Chicken

2 pieces boneless skinless chicken (about 1 – 1 1/2 lbs)

3 cups fresh broccoli, chopped

2 cups carrots, chopped or julienned

1 can Pineapple chunks

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup soy sauce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Lightly steam broccoli and carrots. (I just steamed them for 2 1/2 – 3 minutes until they were slightly cooked but still had a bite to them)
  3. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces, about 1 inch.
  4. Drain the juice from the pineapple chunks into a small bowl (it will be about 1 cup).  Stir in the brown sugar and soy sauce.
  5. Toss vegetables, pineapple, chicken and sauce together in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Bake for 30-35 minutes until chicken is no longer pink. Serve over rice.

To freeze: Cut up vegetables and chicken as directed. Toss all ingredients together in a freezer bag. Don’t pre-cook the chicken, as it will just dry out when you have to cook it again. When ready to make, simply thaw and cook as directed.

    I make a sweet and sour chicken that our family loves. It is breaded though and this is a healthy alternative. Stir fry is one of my favs! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe with SYC. I’m sure it’s not intentional, but I am not seeing a link back to the party.
    hugs,
