2bonelessskinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1green bell pepper
1orange or yellow bell pepper
20-ouncecan Dole pineapple chunks
2green onionsthinly sliced
2teaspoonssesame seedsoptional, for garnish
1cupbasic barbecue sauceor your favorite
1/2 cuppineapple juice
Cut chicken and vegetables into large, bite-sized chunks. Place into a large zip-top bag.
Drain pineapple, reserving 1/2 cup of the juice, and add to the vegetables and chicken in the zip-top bag.
Whisk together marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Reserve about 1 cup of the marinade and pour the rest over the chicken and vegetables.
Seal the bag and shake to even coat and massage into the meat. Set in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove chicken and vegetables from the bag and arrange in a single layer on a large sheet pan, discarding any remaining marinade. (Use tongs or a slotted spoon for this; do not pour onto the tray. You want as little liquid as possible because there will be more liquid created as it cooks).
Roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade (not from the bag) into a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce is thickened and reduced by about half.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven and turn on the broiler. Move the top rack up. (*There will be quite a bit of liquid in the pan from the pineapple and the marinade. I just used paper towels to soak up most of it, then stirred everything together).
Pour the thickened sauce evenly over the top of the chicken and vegetables. Slide back into the oven under the preheated broiler for about 5-7 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and meat and veggies are browned.
Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds, if desired, and serve with rice or noodles.
