Easy Pineapple Chicken Recipe with liquid amino/soy sauce, garlic, ginger, orange pineapple juice! Quick and easy chicken recipe, perfect for your busy weeknights.
Here’s a delicious, Sweet, Tangy Asian Pineapple Chicken Recipe with simple ingredients. The trademark taste is the stir-fry pineapple chicken, which some may tag as an Asian recipe while others see it more as a true Hawaiian taste. Either way, it’s juicy and mixes perfectly well with the crunch of the bell peppers. I love whipping this up on a busy night, ready within 30 minutes. When I prepare this I often try to make my easy pineapple chicken recipe in a big batch, the flavor holds and may even taste better the next day. Serve it with white jasmine rice.
To marinate, let the chicken breasts sit in a sauce mixture to increase the flavor of the food. Foods usually sit in marinades for at least one hour, or overnight, but for this pineapple chicken recipe, you only need 5-10 minutes. It can be left out at room temperature; otherwise keep in the refrigerator.
