Barbecue Pineapple Chicken


When we were taking inventory of our pantry recently I realized I had quite a few extra bottles of barbecue sauce on hand. I am trying to keep the grocery budget down so I decided that using some of the extra barbecue sauce was a must. A can on pineapple, an orange pepper, chicken breasts, and egg noodles and we are on our way to a delicious simple dinner!

Verdict:

This was super yummy AND super simple! This dish can be on the table in about 30-40 minutes. The barbecue sauce that I used adds a hint of heat with the sweetness from the pineapple that makes a super tasty dish.

I served this over egg noodles but rice would also be great. Add whatever vegetables you like to the dish. We served it with a side of green beans to complete the meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, pounded down to 3/4″ to 1″ thickness
  • olive oil
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1 (18 oz) bottle barbecue sauce, I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue (it’s my favorite)
  • 1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 orange or red pepper, seeded and chopped
  • egg noodles or rice for serving, if desired

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat warm olive oil. Season chicken with salt and black pepper on both sides. Add chicken to pan and cook 2-4 minutes until golden brown. Chicken does not need to be cooked all the way through as you will be baking it.
  3. Once chicken is golden on both sides remove from pan and but into 1″ cubes.  Add cubes to a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Add barbecue sauce, pineapple chunks, and pepper to the dish and stir well.
  4. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through and dish is hot.
  5. Serve hot over egg noodles or rice as desired.
