Pineapple sticky Chicken By Noreen

We eat a lot of Asian style dishes in my home. I went in to the kitchen experimenting. I came up with this dish out of ingredients in my home. My family loved it. My husband had 3 pieces! It is a semi sweet yet savory dish. It is also on the lower fat side. I used boneless chicken thighs. You could also make this dish with pounded chicken tenders. That would make it really low fat. I hope you all enjoy my creation! :-)
