Recipes Fruity Chicken

Fruity Chicken with Peppers

We love how beautifully the flavors of our Smokey sauce marry with the freshness of the pineapple. We used canned pineapple titbits with the juice and it was great. This meal cooked very quickly – 10 to 15 min. Prep time was quick too – 10 min. We served this with brown long grain rice – the nutty flavor of the rice paired well with the bright, sultry flavor of the Smokey chicken. The rice cooked about 35 – 40 min so start that first. Dinner could be on the table in 40 min – yeah!

Makes: 4 – 6 servings


4 – 5 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or 3 breasts) cut into strips
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion cut chunky
6 cloves garlic minced
1 green (or red) pepper seeded and cut chunky
1 tin (20oz) pineapple tidbits (we will use liquid and fruit)
2/3 cup Jim’s Own Sauce Smokey
2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives (optional)
Brown rice for serving


Heat oil in Dutch oven or pot on the stove on medium heat and add onion. Sauté the onion until it starts to soften.

Add chicken thighs and cook on medium high for 5 min while stirring.

Add garlic and pepper to pot and cook for 2 – 3 min while stirring to prevent garlic from burning.

Drain the canned pineapple juice into a cup and mix with the Jim’s Own Sauce. Add sauce blend over chicken.

Add half of the can of pineapple tidbits to the pot.

Cook for 5 – 7 minutes until chicken is cooked and juices have thickened.

Add optional chopped chives to chicken and serve over brown rice. ENJOY!
