Caramelised chicken in pineapple sauce
Chicken makes for perfect dinner on busy weekends, but its not fun if you were to eat the same type of chicken everyday. So here is another variety, which again is extremely simple and yummy.
I had some boneless chicken and some pineapple and that's how it all started.. Shredded chicken was marinated in some sauces and finally fried and caramelised in pineapple sauce. It was yummmmmmmmm Enjoy sweet, spicy and juicy chicken with sautéed vegetables.
250 gms boneless chicken shredded
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4 tbsp pineapple juice
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 cup each of red pepper, yellow pepper
1/2 cup sweet corn
1 cup broccoli pieces
5 garlic cloves
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp sugar
3 tsp olive oil (for chicken)
3 tsp olive oil (for vegetables)
Salt to taste
In a bowl, add shredded chicken, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, crushed garlic cloves, pepper, salt, sugar and mix well. Leave the chicken to marinate for 30 mins
Meanwhile, stir fry all the vegetables in 3 tsp oil. After the veggies cool down, add salt and 1/2 tsp pepper.
In the same pan, add 2 tsp oil and fry chicken for 5 minutes on high flame, by continuously stirring. When chicken turns brown, add pineapple juice and stir on high flame till water evaporates.
Serve chicken on bed of vegetables.
