Following the advice of others I changed the following: Cut 3 breasts into thin cutlets (6 total) used 1 pkg of onion soup mix pineapple juice and enough water to make 1 1/2 cups (instead of the 2 cups of water) 1 T brown sugar 1 T soy sauce and 2 cloves minced garlic. I brought the liquid mix to a boil once in the skillet then simmered on medium for 30 minutes. I also didn't add the pineapple until the final 15 minutes. Sauce thickened nicely and the whole family loved it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This recipe was so easy and tasty! As I was only making this for my husband and me I just used 2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts but I used a whole packet of onion soup mix and a whole can of crushed pineapple with the juice. I added about 1 cup of water. Also about 5 minutes before the chicken was done simmering I removed the chicken sliced it and returned it to the mixture to simmer for a few more minutes. Then I served it all over rice. We loved it! Read More

My husband and I literally licked our plates this was so good! I only used two chicken breasts sliced into long 1/4" thick pieces. I also changed the recipe according to previous notes in the following way: Dust chicken in black pepper and garlic before browning. Use no water but use 1 1/4 cup pineapple juice. Add 1/2-3/4 tbsp soy sauce 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar with one full packet of onion soup. Add pineapple chunks/rings 2 heaping tbsp flour 1 1/2 tbsp garlic in last 5 minutes to thicken and flavor. I only let this simmer for approximately 15-20 minutes. Served over white rice with a small amount of butter with green salad with ranch on the side. Read More

This recipe got full marks from both myself and my husband. (He ate 4 pieces!) I used skinless boneless thighs and added the full amount of water called for PLUS all the pineapple juice and TWO full packets of onion soup mix rather than 1 1/2 because we like a stronger flavor. It was great. As my husband pointed out it tasted vaguely oriental - kind of dark and sweet but not very sweet. This one is an instant family favorite! Read More
