Maui chicken is a festive dish featuring succulent chicken breast, sweet red and orange peppers and mushrooms. This colorful dish is then simmered in a spicy ginger, garlic, and pineapple sauce. The combination is as delightful as the Maui sunset. Serve over white or brown rice.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, mushrooms, garlic, and ginger. Cook and stir the vegetable mixture until the garlic is fragrant and the peppers begin to soften. Stir in the chicken and cook until the juices from the chicken run clear, about 15 minutes.

I have not tried this recipe yet. I just want to add a thought to the ingredient list. Instead of using 1 can of pineapple tidbits for the marinade I would use a small can of pineapple juice instead and not wast the tidbits from the marinade. Read More

I didn't follow the recipe entirely. When I saw "Maui Chicken" I looked over the ingredients and thought that perhaps shrimp and scallops would be a better fit than chicken. So I left out the chicken and added 1/2lb scallops and a total of 16 medium shrimp. Everything else I followed. I thought the sauce was to thin so I added some cornstarch to thicken it up - I served this over rice. I think adding the shrimp and scallops made it more "Island fare" than chicken would have. It is a great starter recipe. Read More

Made the recipe as written ( gasp! ). Very good =) The mushrooms were a bit underwhelming I think. In the future I will try out the addition of other vegetables. Quick easy filling reheats well.... it's a darn good recipe. Read More

I thought this recipe was great. I modified a few ingredients based on what I had on hand. I used ground ginger instead or fresh and served it over rice. The only complaint I have is that it was much hotter than I was expecting. The spiciness was okay for me but was too spicy for my dinner guests. Next time I will use less red pepper flakes. Read More

This was really good but I did make a few changes: increased ginger to 3T used 2T sriracha instead of the red pepper flakes (we like it hot) and replaced the mushrooms with fresh broccoli. I also added a little corn starch to thicken the sauce. I will try this again with a sprinkle of brown sugar next time! (It only took 45 mins to make - not 1.25 hours) Read More
