Equipment

  • Skillet
  • 9x13-inch Baking Pan

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups corn starch
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • ¼ cup canola oil

Hawaiian Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 20 ounces pineapple tidbits drained

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place cornstarch and eggs in small separate bowls. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture (I know it seems backwards to dip it in cornstarch first, but trust me on this!).
  • Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned.
  • Place the chicken in a 9 x 13 greased baking dish sprayed lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together pineapple juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, minced garlic, and cornstarch.
  • Add the red bell pepper, green bell pepper, green onions and pineapple tidbits.
  • Pour over chicken and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes.

Notes

Serve over cooked rice or quinoa.
