Can I just tell you how DAMN good this is?  Yes! It is totally worth the naughty word! This dish really isn't that time-consuming and you have a nice colorful & delicious meal on the table.  I have to tell you that my picky nearly-twelve-year-old went back for THIRDS! Yes, i said THIRDS! Crazy huh?  It is THAT good!  The chicken is so tender and of course, the minute rice saves you oodles of time.  I hope you enjoy this enough to add it to your menu board! This recipe is certainly going on my Menu Board!  Oh!... that reminds me-- have you entered the giveaway for your very OWN made-to-your-liking MENU BOARD?  If not, please go here!

Hawaiian Chicken
adapted from Lion House
printable recipe

3 large chicken breasts
cooking oil
1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoon cornstarch
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 chicken bouillon cube
1/2 green pepper, cut into 1 inch chunks
1/2 red pepper, cut into 1 inch chunks
Cooked Rice

First take the chicken breasts and filet them into 2 or 3 thinner pieces.  Then I like to cut them in half so they are nice serving-size pieces.  I think this way they also become more tender during cook-time.  Roll chicken pieces in flour and sprinkle with salt.  Brown in oil.  Drain pineapple, reserving pineapple chunks, and pour juice into measuring cup.  Add water to make 1 1/2 cups.  Add honey, cornstarch, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, and bouillon cube; bring to a boil.  Cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Pour over chicken pieces in 9x13 glass baking dish.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 2o minutes.  Add pineapple chunks and peppers.  bake 5 minutes longer.  Serve with cooked rice. (I use minute rice)...
Makes 4-6 servings
