A flavorful sweet and sour pineapple barbecue sauce jazzes up this great tasting chicken. Serve the chicken with its sauce over rice or noodles.

The dish is a very quick preparation and takes only about 15 minutes to cook. Have hot cooked rice ready, or make Asian style noodles.

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 bell pepper, coarsely chopped or cut into strips
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped or cut into strips
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless chicken breast halves or tenders
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, any brand you like, or homemade
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • salt and pepper, to taste

How to Make It

Cut the chicken into strips or 2-inch chunks. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken, bell pepper, and onion. Cook, constantly stirring, until the chicken is browned.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl; pour over the chicken and vegetables and then stir to combine. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 8 to 12 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Serve the chicken with hot cooked rice or noodles.

Serves 4 to 6.
