Chicken with Pineapple Recipe

"I'm always on the lookout for low-fat recipes that are scrumptious, too, like this one," comments Jenny Reece of Lowry, Minnesota. In her dish, quick-cooking chicken breasts get wonderful sweet flavor from pineapple, honey and teriyaki sauce.

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce or reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

"I really liked this and it was simple and easy to make. I cut my chicken up in pieces instead of leaving the breasts whole. My small children wouldn't touch it -- apparently they don't like teriyaki -- but that is their loss."

"I added mango and thought it was tatsy, but everyone said needs about three times the sauce to accomodate the rice."

"Quick & easy - great for dinner when you're crunched for time. I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and found it needed to cook longer than 3-5 minutes. I will also double the sauce next time. Not bad though!"

"I didn't do any tweaking, I made it just like the recipe said and my family and I weren't impressed. The extra sauce or the other "tweak" ideas might help, though. At least it's healthy! :)"

"I love this dish! I did tweak it though. I cut the chicken into bite size pieces and use pinapple and mandarin oranges and increase the amount of sauce. It is wonderful!!!"
