This easy chicken and pineapple Chinese style recipe serves one person. You can use canned pineapple, or fresh slices of pineapple, whichever you prefer. Fresh pineapple is often just as cheap to buy as canned pineapple, and you can tell the difference in this dish.
Pineapple is rich in the enzyme bromelain, a fabulous meat tenderiser, and popular in folk medicine down through the ages.
Use a good quality soy sauce and serve your chicken in pineapple with boiled or fried rice.
Recipe from The Art of Chinese Cooking, where it is also known as Po Lo Chi.
Beef or pork can be substituted for the chicken.
The veg should be cooked crisp, not soggy.
