I've made this recipe many times but tried something new this time I thought I would share. Instead of the raw chicken, I used breaded chicken tenders. I cooked them as directed and made the pineapple sauce in a saucepan. Used it as a dipping sauce for the tenders!

This recipe is an Excellent addition to our family meals! My Husband followed the recipe to the letter with exception of fresh pineapple instead of can pineapple. Very tasty and our two year old loved it! We may also try it the way other reviewers tried it as well

I am amazed! This is by far the most flavorful, savory, and perfectly tender & moist chicken dish I've made in a long time. I had friends over and some leftover pineapple, so I decided to try it out on them. They loved it, and I'm glad to have made it.

The soy sauce combined well with pineapple and vinegar...I used apple cider vinegar instead of the usual white. It thickened nicely.

I actually added pineapple juice during the earlier step when I was sauteing the chicken...I figured any opportunity to get more pineapple flavor would be a good one, and this added extra moisture to the chicken.

By the way, I also used free-range chicken, because some of my guests are uncomfortable with eating frozen chicken from the large conglomerates, given what we know about their factory practices. Go free-range if you can!

Will DEFINITELY be bookmarking this recipe to make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Thought this was so simple and great. I did thicken the sauce up at the end, was a bit thin for me. I also used chicken tenders. This is a keeper.

A really great recipe. I used half of a fresh pineapple, cut in little tidbits, and 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs. I also added a half teaspoon of curry powder. I served it on rice. Yum! This recipe is a definite keeper; thanks!

Great easy recipe! I was able to adapt it to the ingredients I had on hand- chicken thighs and pineapple tidbits. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and increased the soy sauce to 1 TBSP. Plus I added about 1/4 tsp of ginger powder. Yummy! Thanks for a family pleasing recipe!

This reminds me so much of a recipe mom made when I was a kid that she called hawaiian chicken. The only difference was she garnished each serving with a maraschino cherry! Thanks for bringing back the memory. It was fun to make this again.
