Chicken, Vegetable, & Pineapple Skillet Meal

chicken, veggie & pineapple skillet
This meal is delicious as is, but if you eat soy, you might enjoy soy sauce added to it.  I am on a soy free diet, and my family doesn’t particularly like soy sauce so I didn’t use any.  My husband is not a big fan of fruit such as pineapple with his meat (poultry), but I sneak it in occasionally.  He didn’t mind it too much in this dish and the kids really enjoyed it.  It surprised me how much flavor a little canned pineapple added.  It was definitely nice for a change.

This recipe is perfect for using leftover chicken.  You can use white or dark meat or a combination of both.  I used thighs for the recipe in the photo.  I served this over a mix of rice and quinoa.  It wasn’t the best combination with red quinoa, and next time I will serve it with brown rice or pasta.

Chicken, Vegetable, & Pineapple Skillet Meal

In a large skillet, heat the oil and add the onion, pepper and garlic.  Sauté until tender.  Add the chicken and heat through.  Add the tomatoes and pineapple and heat.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Dissolve the corn starch in the cold water and slowly pour it into the skillet, stirring constantly.  Cook a couple of minutes until hot and slightly thickened.

You're so right about pineapple and chicken together -- they complement each other well. I almost always like the combination, although my hubby doesn't at all :-(
I make a pork dish with a little pineapple. Too much is, well, too much, but a smaller amount is often just right. Looks great, Linda!

Hi Linda,

Anything with chicken and pineapple makes to stop and take a second look, I can't wait to try this! I added the recipe to my favorite recipes from last week post. Thanks!

Scrumptious! This is a great, unique recipe! For the Corn Starch, Kinnikinnick Foods has a GF/DF 1oz bag for $3.34! I look forward to reading your future posts:)
It looks great. I guess you can adjust the amount of cornstarch to vary the consistency.
I finally got around to making this. It was absolutely delicious and so easy and quick to make! Thanks for sharing.
Newly discovered the issue with gluten and I have really enjoyed your site for ideas to help me cope. Thank you so much!
