Get ready to indulge into a sweet but savory chicken that will be sure to satisfy the crowd sitting at your table. One of the reasons I love this chicken is because of the pineapple undertone flavors. I’m one of those that do not mind Hawaiian pizza, in fact it’s a top choice whenever I order. Even if you are not a huge fan of sweet chicken, this meal is the perfect amount of sweet and savory ratio ensuring satisfaction.
At Kathey Jo’s Kitchen, we like to simmer the chicken in water with bouillon cubes for ultimate taste, preferably chicken bouillon cubes. It’s very similar to broth, only it’s a dehydrated broth in powder form. This means you could substitute one for the other—use the broth rather than the cubes or vice versa. Either will work.
As you are cooking the chicken, you’ll want to get the veggies ready. Here you will want to melt the margarine in either a frying pan or wok. Work to sauté the radishes, green peppers, and the pineapple. Cook them until they are crisp and tender. To prevent losing flavor, avoid letting them get brown. You are now ready to combine the chicken and veggies. Enjoy this recipe over rice, or chow mein!
