Tasty Tuesday: Soy/Pineapple Marinated Chicken


     This is a very flavorful chicken breast recipe, which I am always on the lookout for! Marinated in soy sauce and pineapple juice, this makes a sweetly savory dish that is sure to please. It almost tastes like the bourbon chicken or terriaki chicken you get at the Chinese buffet and would probably taste awesome with fried rice!
     So let’s go to it! What you’re going to need is: 
     1/2 cup soy sauce (low sodium would so well, as this was just short of being too salty.)
     1/4 cup brown sugar
     3/4 tsp garlic powder
     1/4 cup pineapple juice (or juice from 8 oz can of pineapple tidbits)
     2 tsp vanilla extract
     2-3 chicken breasts 

     Marinate the chicken breast in all the other ingredients about 30 minutes. Place marinated breasts in lightly oiled skillet on med-hi and cook about 5-7 minutes. Flip the chicken breasts and cook for another 5-7 minutes. If using the pineapple tidbits, add them in for the last minute or two of cooking and serve with the chicken.

  1. This sounds so good! Not sure about the vanilla but it is worth a try!!

      I know it sounds weird, but it doesn’t give it a “vanilla” taste or anything. The other flavors are stronger.

  2. this is something different and in a good way! What a great combination of flavors, and so easy! I can hardly wait to try this, I’m sure it will be a big hit!

  3. This chicken recipe sounds really delicious! I have never used pineapple with chicken before, so this is a must try.

    This sounds like a great recipe, I get so tired of the same old foods as my hubby is not very venturesome, but I see nothing in here that he does not like and I will try it this week thank you for sharing…
