Chicken with Pineapple Chunks

As a trying hard cook (and I still consider my self a newbie in the kitchen world), I often get ideas in my cooking from recipe books or from food blogs.  I really spend time online exploring different recipes posted by foodies.  Also, I buy cook books or food magazines every now and then.

In my post today, I would like to share to you our dinner the other night which hubby loved.  It’s chicken with sweet pineapple chunks.  I got the idea from my online cooking idol, Pinoy Cook.  Here’s how I did it:

Ingredients (good for 2 persons):

  • 4 pieces medium-cut chicken meat (I used the drumstick and wing parts)
  • pineapple chunks, drained (small can)
  • pineapple syrup (from the syrup of the can of pineapple chunk)
  • 2 teaspoons of cornstarch
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. of chili flakes
  • about 1 tablespoon of Knorr seasoning (since I don’t have fish sauce or patis)
  • 2 tbsps. of cooking oil
  • salt to taste


  1.  First, I boiled the chicken (until tender).  Then, I prepared the rest of the ingredients.

2.  Second, I heated the cooking oil on a pan (I used Canola oil) then put in the chicken (note: stir it).  After few minutes, I put the garlic, onion and chili flakes.

3. Third, I mixed the cornstarch in the pineapple syrup then pour it on the chicken mixture.  Then I added the pineapple chunks.  (Note: Cook over high heat for about three minutes or until the sauce is thick and clear).

Here’s a portion of the cooked chicken with pineapple chunks.  I’m happy that hubby find it delicious.  The chicken was tender, the pineapples were yummy and it had a sweet and spicy taste…just perfect! 🙂
