How to Make Pineapple Ginger Chicken


  1. In a processor, place pineapple juice, ginger, coriander, parsley & lime juice. Pulse several times to purée. Strain out the solids & discard, reserving the juice.
  2. Add bacon fat in a pan, or fry bacon to render fat, then remove bacon pieces from pan. (NOTE: you will not necessarily need the bacon for this recipe, but you can sprinkle over the chicken as a garnish).
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour, cayenne & chili powder. Tenderize the chicken (you can use half breasts pounded into patties). Season with salt & pepper. Then lightly dredge the chicken in the dry flour mixture.
  4. Fry the chicken in bacon fat to brown on both sides.
  5. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add butter & juices. Top each piece of chicken with a pineapple slice. Simmer until chicken is cooked through.
