Before we discuss this tasty Pineapple Chicken, I wanted to remind you to enter the Sucre King Cake Giveaway (entry below)!
Now, back to the chicken. This is one of the simplest, tasty, dishes around!
We eat a lot of Asian food in my house, and we also have a couple of great Asian restaurants around town to eat at when I don’t want to cook.
I always order this chicken when I go out to eat because it’s sweet and spicy! It’s called Boo Loo Gai, pronounced BOLOGI…if you’re like me, and can’t speak Chinese.
All I did was thinly slice some boneless, skinless, chicken breast. Then I quick marinated it in sesame oil, white wine vinegar, sriracha, and soy sauce.
Lastly, I added some of my favorite spices and that was it!
Two cups of crushed pineapple and a little chicken broth was all we needed to make a rich sauce.
Don’t forget to cook up a big batch of hot rice and garnish with a little green onions.
Time to eat people…!
