  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a small skillet over medium heat; cook and stir bell pepper and onion squares until edges of peppers are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.

  • Mix teriyaki sauce, chicken broth, chopped sweet onion, and garlic powder with chicken; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is reduced by half and chicken is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Stir bell pepper-onion mixture, cashew pieces, and hot sauce into chicken mixture and simmer until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Stir pineapple into chicken mixture. Arrange Swiss cheese slices over chicken mixture.

Cook's Note:

Olive oil can be substituted for the sesame oil.

The flavor of this sauce will vary a great deal with your choice of teriyaki sauce. I use Trader Joe's(R) Teriyaki and Wasabi sauce.

This was a pretty and tasty supper. I didn't have frozen pineapple so I used canned. I also left out the nuts and the cheese. There seemed to be too much liquid. I used half the teriyaki sauce and half the broth called for and that was perfect. Great over rice. Read More

I thought this was tasty but it was way too high in sodium. I read the earlier reviews before making this and adapted after hearing their comments. I only added 3/4 cup of teriyaki sauce and 1/4 cup of chicken broth. I added more veggies such as fresh green beans for added color. I used fresh pineapple not the suggested frozen pineapple. Lastly I mixed 1 1/2 teaspoons of corn starch with a little cold water and blended it into the sauce so it wasn't so runny. Read More

This is a five star all the way. (and I don't give them out willy-nilly.) Two small changes tho...since I didn't have frozen pineapple I used canned chunks. Also since the sauce seemed a little thin for my taste I made an easy fix with a little corn starch and cold water. No big deal there. Without a doubt we will be having this again. Read More

Excellent! This will be my go-to stir-fry recipe. I did make some changes to make this real-food friendly: I used frozen organic bell pepper slices home made teriyaki sauce fresh cut pineapple and raw cashews. When it came time to add the liquid I did not use chicken broth as I saw no need for it. I would recommend not using it at all. I let the teriyaki reduce slightly and it was perfect. I did not add the cheese as I found it unnecessary. The Sriracha really kicks it up a bit. We served over a bed of brown rice. Very good will make again! Read More

Liked this very much but even though I simmered it well over 20 minutes the sauce seemed a little thin. I also did not put swiss cheese on it at the end. Sorry. Couldn't do it. It was delicious without.I also used boneless skinless chicken thighs. Read More

I tried this recipe last night and would give it 5 stars except that I need to modify the next time. I added a lot more veggies since we love them and I had left over from the previous night - so besides the peppers and onions we had yellow squash and asparagus. Yum! I felt the sauce was too salty for my taste so next time I will drop the chicken stock and use water - and make sure the temperature stays high enough to reduce in 15-20 minutes. Read More
