Chinese Pineapple Chicken


It might sound unusual but this Chinese Pineapple Chicken in Sticky Asian Sauce dish is the perfect combination of sweet, sour and salty. I’m having a pineapple moment right now. I love how well it goes in so many savory dishes, giving a huge burst of juicy sweetness whenever you bite into a chunk. I think it matches chicken perfectly, especially when it’s served in the knock-out sauce I’ve added to this dish.

A combination of hoisin, soy, garlic, ginger, and sugar, all cooked down until it becomes thick and coats the ingredients with a beautiful brown sheen. A scattering of scallions and sesame seeds really finish this dish off and give it an authentic Asian look!
