Chicken with pineapples

   A friend of mine gave me this idea a few years ago, and I fell in love with the combination of soy sauce and pineapple. I knew I always liked grilled warm pineapples at restaurants on skewer dishes and all, but this dish surprised me. It's very simple to make but has great flavors, sure to please.


Chicken breasts or tenders
Canned chopped pineapple chunks with the juice
Soy sauce (gluten-free)
White wine (optional)
olive oil
1 or 2 garlic cloves
½-1 onion, chopped
Peas (canned, frozen or snowpeas) or other vegetable of your choice. (Spinach works too)

Chop up chicken and brown in a frying pan with olive oil. Add in chopped garlic and onions. Simmer for a few minutes. Meanwhile, pour in some soy sauce and white wine. (enough to coat/flavor the chicken-depending on how many breasts you use) Add the pineapple chunks and some of the pineapple juice from can. Add peas. Stir and simmer until the chicken and peas are cooked.
