Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk soy sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cumin together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add chicken medallions and toss to evenly coat. Set aside to marinate.

  • Combine pineapple chunks, syrup, and sugar in a medium pot over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Boil until sugar has dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the stove, transfer pineapple chunks to a bowl, and leave syrup in the pot.

  • Place potato starch in a bowl. Dredge marinated chicken medallions in potato starch; shake off excess.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, working in batches and adding more oil if necessary, and fry until golden brown and crunchy, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Heat remaining 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a wok. Add tomato paste; cook and stir until paste darkens, being careful it does not burn. Add bell pepper and cook until slightly softened but still crispy, 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in chicken medallions and pineapple chunks. Slowly mix in some of the syrup until mixture is lightly glazed; reserve remaining syrup for another use. Sprinkle with green onions.

Cook's Note:

Corn starch can be used in place of potato starch, if preferred.

Delicious! I do think the skillet needed a bit more oil before cooking the chicken, and I decided to mix in some of the syrup into the tomato paste and pepper mixture before adding the chicken and pineapple chunks. I think this helped blend the sauce before the big chunks were added. Read More

I’m not a big fried food eater anymore- I still thought that this was a really great recipe with fresh ingredients and the pineapple glaze was a big win. Read More

Definitely reduce the sugar. I added some pineapple juice before adding the cooked chicken back to the pan. It was very good and my family says its a keeper. Read More

I didn't use bell peppers as I didn't have any. My husband liked it he wanted more (gravy) sauce. Read More

Awesome recipe - my husband said it's in his top 5. Only thing I did different was add some of the sugar sauce in when the red pepper and pineapple was sautéing as suggested by another user. Will definitely make again. Read More
