Pineapple Chicken Recipe

This Pineapple Chicken was one of the meals we had when we were in Enterprise, AL. Denise sent the recipe to me back in March. It is her friend Julie's recipe. It is very good and I decided to make it one night last week.

Here's the recipe:
5 lbs of chicken thighs
1 can of pineapple chunks in 100% juice
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup of shoyu (soy sauce)
1/2 cup of vinegar
4 T of cornstarch
1/2 tsp powdered ginger

Put all ingredients except the chicken in a saucepan, stir and bring to a boil. Place chicken in a large pan, pour sauce over chicken. Bake at 350 deg for 1 1/2 hours.

* I used a family pak of boneless/skinless chicken thighs. There were 8 pieces in the package. Be sure to watch the sauce because as soon as it comes to a full boil, the sauce will thicken. Also stir occasionally as the sugar will burn and stick on the bottom of the pan. I baked it for about an hour and 15 minutes and used a 9x13 inch baking dish.

When we had this in Enterprise, we had the combination thigh and leg pieces. Those probably would have to be cooked the 1 1/2 hours.

Serve it with rice. It is very good, we had 2 meals out of it. I forgot to take a picture so you could see what it looks like. Let me know if you decide to make it.


  1. Awesome. Even the leftovers were good.

  2. Sounds so ono!! But NO picture?? Awwwww . . . I hate it when I only think of taking a picture when it's too late.

  3. LOL!! I hate those "senior moments" when I forget to do things, like take pictures!! I'm sure I'll be fixing it again, so I will try to remember next time. :))
