This has got to be one of my favourite ways to make chicken. The sauce is amazing and it just bursts with flavour on your tongue. My mom used to make this, but alas, I cannot remember from whence this recipe came.
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp cold water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white vinegar
garlic to taste
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 small can (4.5oz) pineapple chunks or tidbits
4 - 6 chicken breasts, bone in or boneless skinless
Combine starch and water in saucepan. Add sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic & spices. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the mixture thickens and is bubbling. Place chicken in greased pan, pour sauce over top and bake until chicken is cooked through. Add the pineapple at the end and return to the oven just for a minute to heat it through. Serve with rice and a steamed vegetable.
