  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup soy suace
  • 16 oz pineapple tidbits (we use frozen tidbits but canned works great too!)
  • ¼ cup honey (or 3 tablespoons of brown sugar)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp cloves and ginger (or cloves and cinnamon, or cinnamon and of those combos)
  • 3 tablespoons flour (if needed, use a gluten-free substitute)


  • Melt your butter in a large skillet. Add chicken and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the pineapple, soy sauce, honey, sugar, and spices to the pan scraping the bottom a bit to bring up the browned bits. Let come to a boil.
  • Turn the heat down a bit. Push aside the pineapple and add the flour to the liquid, slowly...whisking with a fork as you add it.
  • Add enough flour to bring the sauce to the thickness you prefer.
  • Remove from heat.

Serve the chicken with sauce on rice...for the best possible gluten-free meal (in our opinion!). Of course, minute rice makes this easy!

UPDATE: This is a simple dish that anyone can prepare! Recently, my husband made it (he used crushed pineapple versus pineapple chunks because he wanted it more saucy) and I grabbed photos. Truly this is simple, delicious, and easy...

    I believe a fabulous meal deserves to exploit its theme -- therefore I have my grass skirt, lei and coconuts all ready to go -- I think my hubby will be very happy to see the outfit I've picked out for him Heh! heh! heh! The recipe is definitely a keeper.
