Chicken with Pineapples

It's been so long since I last made a post for Yummy Sunday, and since I have finally created the line up of what to post for each day here in my blog, it's time for me to go back to Yummy Sunday again. From here on out, this is where I am going to post dishes I cooked - either based on recipes handed down to me, or recipes I took from different media, or dishes created in my kitchen.

151/365 c2 - A Chicken Dish

One time last month, I decided to cook the chicken just like what I did with the pork belly dish I created last December. My curiosity of adding pineapples (which was supposedly my dessert) gave birth to a new dish, and here was how I did it...

Chicken with Pineapples
{serves 2}

  • 4 pieces chicken thigh fillets
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • juice from 1 medium lemon
  • chopped garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • oil for pan frying
  • 1 small pack pineapple tidbits (with syrup)
  • a dash of Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
  • chili flakes (optional)
  • Marinade chicken in milk, garlic, salt and pepper for about an hour.
  • Pan fry the chicken pieces until golden brown, set aside.
  • Heat a small pan and pour the marinade then add the pineapples with syrup. As it simmer, sprinkle a dash of Italian seasoning, then add the cheese and the cornstarch diluted in water and wait until it gets to the consistency that you want. Season according to your preference.
  • Top the sauce in the chicken and sprinkle with chili flakes, if desired.
Personal Notes:
  • You can also sprinkle cornstarch with minimal seasoning in the chicken pieces before frying.
  • This dish can be served with rice or garlic bread, or can be eaten as is.
  • Use white pepper for this dish. I used black pepper and the speckles of pepper can really be seen. :D
The addition of Italian seasoning was something that came out to me as I cooked the sauce. When I tasted it, it sure tasted okay, but somehow I felt it lacked something. At first I hoped that me sprinkling Italian seasoning won't ruin the dish, but as I eat it, the dish somewhat tasted like pizza - without the crust. I certainly had a great time eating it, and I was proud of this little kitchen experiment.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
