Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

I tried a new chicken recipe tonight. I made it up. This is usually a coin toss for me. Either it’s really good, or it just goes straight in the trash. And, usually before it’s even eaten, it’s met with cries of disgust from the natives in the other rooms.

Tonight it was a win. It doesn’t have a name, so feel free to name it what you want.

1 pkg Chicken Tenderloins (or breasts cut up)
1/4 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp soy sauce
4 tbsp rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (more to your taste- this was plenty spicy for us)
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1tsp ground ginger


In a hot pan combine rice wine vinegar, oil, soy sauce, and oil. Stir well and add onion, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes. Allow to cook on med-high heat until onions and garlic start to brown (about 3 mins).

Add the juice of 1 can of pineapple. Cook another 3 mins, then add chicken and cook covered for 3-4 mins, turn chicken, and cook an additional 3-4 mins.

Uncover and continue to cook until chicken is done (about 3 more mins depending on the thickness of your chicken).

Serve with rice!!
