Island Glazed Chicken Tenderloins

Ingredients:


  • 1¼ lb boneless-skinless chicken tenderloins
  • 1 Tbl olive oil
  • 1-15oz can pineapple tidbits or chunks (drain, reserve juice)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tbl soy sauce
  • 1 Tbl cornstarch
  • 1 Tbl water
  • 2 cups prepared quick-cook rice

Cooking Directions:


Cook rice per package instructions; set aside. Combine garlic powder, cayenne, brown sugar, salt, nutmeg, and ginger in a small mixing bowl.  Mix until blended.

Preheat oil in skillet. Sauté chicken over medium-high heat.

When done, remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Chicken is done when punctured with a fork and juices run clear.  Internal temperature must reach 165°F. Reduce heat on skillet to medium-low.

Combine the seasoning with the honey, soy sauce and pineapple juice. Whisk so that seasonings do not clump. Add liquid to the skillet and bring to a low boil.

Mix cornstarch and water until you have a smooth paste.  Slowly add to the simmering juice mixture, whisking to prevent lumping.  Simmer for 2 minutes or until thickened and clear. Add the pineapple and return chicken to the skillet with the sauce.  Serve over rice.
