Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breast cubed into 2" pieces
  • 3 bell peppers, any color diced into 2" pieces
  • 1 red onion diced into 2" pieces
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt, pepper, and garlic powder for seasoning
  • cooked rice or noodles, for serving
  • scallions, for garnish

Pinapple Jalapeño Sauce

  • 20 oz can diced pineapple in 100% pineapple juice
  • 1 clove minced garlic or ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos*
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • 1-2 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ small jalapeño pepper sliced thin
  • ½ tsp chili flakes optional
  • 1 tbsp each, cornstarch mixed with cold water

Instructions

  • Dice chicken, peppers, and onion into even 2" pieces and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Split mixture in half and place onto two sheet pans lined with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat.
  • Drain and reserve pineapple juice; add ½ of the diced pineapple pieces to sheet pans and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is done and vegetables are tender. NOTE: if you prefer veggies without any crispness, bake for 10 minutes prior to adding chicken and pineapple pieces.

Pineapple Jalapeño Sauce

  • To a saucepan, add remaining pineapple and juice and remaining sauce ingredients (minus the cornstarch slurry). Bring to a light simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved and peppers are tender. Whisk in cornstarch and continuously stir for another 1-2 minutes until sauce thickens.

Notes

*If using coconut aminos is place of soy sauce, you may wish to decrease the brown sugar and add a pinch or two of salt. Coconut aminos is much sweeter in flavor than soy sauce and lacks that classic saltiness.
