- 1 tsp
- kosher salt
- 8 Tbsp

- 4 Tbsp

NOTE: This recipe can be made with fresh chicken, or boiled. These picks show lightly boiled chicken, but starting with raw allows the spices to soak into the chicken much better.
In small bowl, mix ginger, salt, & cayenne pepper together.
Sprinkle over chicken, both sides
(Be sure to add any drippings of honey/butter mixture from bowl) to skillet before browning chicken)
After browning, remove chicken from pan, set aside. Leave drippings in pan.
Place some pineapple on top of the chicken. Add slices of half an orange to top of chicken. Cover & allow to simmer for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
I strain my sauce to remove chicken pieces. (My daughter will not eat the sauce if there is any evidence of chicken in the sauce.)
Garnish with additional slices of fresh orange, paprika, and parsley.
