Chicken with Pineapple Sauce Recipe

Chicken with Pineapple Sauce Recipe

Here's a sweet thick glaze that really dresses up plain chicken. We think it also tastes good over ham.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • Minced chives, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the pineapple, soy sauce, garlic salt and ginger. Cook and stir over low heat until thickened.
  • 2. Place chicken in a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Pour half of the sauce over chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 1 70°, basting several times with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with chives if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
