I found this recipe in a cook book my dad gave to me recently titled Cooking with the Horse & Buggy People II. I was wondering what to make for dinner and this sounded like a quick and delicious dinner. I happened to have the exact ingredients I needed, so I decided to give it a try.

It turned out amazing! The sauce was a perfect balance of sweet and sour. The pineapple added just that ideal amount of sweet. It is a quick dinner that the entire family will surely enjoy. After a long day at work or school, it is a dinner that is quick to make and tastes great.

  1. Nice! Pineapples have an enzyme that tenderizes meat, meaning your chicken has to be as succulent and juicy as it looks. You may specialize in pastries, sweets and the like, though today’s entry shows your skill at preparing the “dinner” that comes before the dessert, too.

    By the way, isn’t it great being able to re-create your own takeout favorites? About a year ago, I pleasantly surprised myself by successfully rendering kung pao chicken, a personal favorite. Likewise, you’ve inspired imitation with today’s entry!
