Recipe: Hawaiian Chicken with Pineapple.

April 20, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! This past week I've been trying to look for new delicious recipes to spice up this paleo lifestyle. Sometimes it can get kind of boring. Life gets busy and I find myself cooking plain chicken and veggies too many nights in a row. If you've never been to Lexi's Clean Kitchen, you must go and dig through her recipes. They're delicious and fairly easy to make! I knew I wanted to make this one when I read pineapple in the title. I love it, Adam loves it, it's fresh and so delish. Enjoy! 

  • 1 pound chicken breasts
  • 20 ounce can crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
How to Make
  1. In a pot, heat ingredients (minus chicken) 
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. 
  3. Remove from heat and let marinade cool. 
  4. Cut chicken into desired cubes or strips. Place chicken into a bowl and cover with the marinade. Let marinade for up to 24 hours, as few as 2. 
  5. Preheat oven to 350. 
  6. Place entire contents, chicken and marinade into a baking dish. 
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken is entirely cook. 
  8. While the chicken was cooking, I made cauliflower rice. 
  9. Once done, serve together and enjoy! 
I let the chicken marinade for about 2 hours, next time I'm going for 24. 
the finished product fresh out of the love, try not to eat it all right now... 
Topping it with fresh pineapple made it even better.

  4. Thank you for sharing! I'm a vegetarian but I prepare chicken sometimes for my children and husband.

  5. This looks/sounds so good. I have only ever used pineapple with ham, not chicken, but I bet this tastes just as good. Plus it seems like it would be really easy to whip up on a weeknight. Great recipe!

  10. Didn't even know there was thing such as coconut sugar! I made a Hawaiian chicken last night, too!! Lots of pineapple juice, agave, and garlic :)

  13. This looks awesome! One question how can you be sure the chicken is fully cooked?
