Szechuan Chicken Boats 🍚

This recipe is inspired by “Rick and Morty” πŸ’πŸ»

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup low sodium chicken stock
  • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup roasted cashews 
  • Rice for serving

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the pineapple juice, soy sauce, chicken stock, hoisin sauce, brown sugar, garlic and cornstarch. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the mixture has reduced to about 1 cup and is the consistency of thick syrup. Set the sauce aside.

Add the olive oil to a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and season it with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken, stirring, until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off any liquids then add the sauce to the pan and stir until combined. Add the pineapple and cashews and cook, stirring, for an additional 1 minute.
Serve with rice. For additional flare use a whole pineapple. Cut in half, and use the insides for your 1 cup of diced pineapple. Then use it as a bowl! 🍚
