Chicken in Pineapple Juice

1 tender chicken (I purchased 1 lb of chicken breast – 4 pieces)
1 onion diced
3 Tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
¼ liter (1 cup) pineapple juice
1/8 (1/2 cup) liter white wine (I used an inexpensive Sauvignon Blanc)
½ kilo (1 lb) potatoes (I used red potatoes, chopped)
salt & pepper

Add wine, pineapple juice, potatoes, salt and pepper.

Add wine, pineapple juice, potatoes, salt and pepper.

  1. Cut chicken into pieces. The chicken came in four pieces, and I cut them into smaller, 1 inch pieces.
  2. Fry onions in oil. I cooked these until soft – about 8 minutes.
  3. Add wine, pineapple juice, potatoes, salt and pepper. After adding these ingredients, I covered the pan and cooked for another 8 minutes.
  4. Add chicken.
  5. Cover pan and simmer on low until chicken is cooked through. Another 10 minutes.
  6. Add water or broth if needed. I did not need any.

I chose this recipe because it looked simple and translated well.

This recipe ended up overall tasty, especially the onions and potatoes, but was overall a bit bland. The chicken was especially bland – I would add some other kind of spice. It’s best served with the white wine you used for cooking!
