My original recipe with some of these ingredients was for a sandwich; this time I wanted to make it the main dish so served it over rice.

Hubby isn't a rice person but he did eat this...it was supper, so take it or not!

It's really quick and easy, hope you will give it a shot & that it becomes one of your go-to meals!

How to Make Chicken, Peppers & Pineapple over Rice

Step-by-Step

  1. In large skillet, melt butter. Add in minced shallot and diced peppers; cook over medium heat until peppers are starting to get a little soft.
  2. Add in the brown sugar and pineapple juice, stirring to dissolve and vegetables are a little glazed. Stir occasionally.
  3. Add pineapple chunks and drained chicken. Turn heat up on high, and use a spatula to stir gently so you don't break chicken up too much. The mixture will thicken slightly; when it does, it's ready.
  4. Spoon over hot cooked rice on plate and serve. Enjoy!
