Pineapple Ginger Chicken

Pineapple Ginger Chicken

  • Pineapple ginger chicken

Wow – I first made this dish when my eldest son had a stomach ache. I wanted to use  ginger and I had some to use up in the fridge.

Extremely easy, super tasty, and I modified it to be gluten and dairy free. The kids actually eat it too.


  • 1  1/8 cup gluten free all-purpose flour (add 2tbsp xanthan gum if necessary)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4-5 chicken breasts, pounded flat, cut to bite-sized pieces, don’t dry off
  • 1/2 tsp avocado oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2/3 cup pineapple, blended (can keep some diced for show)
  • 1/4 soy sauce (or coconut amines)
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 1/4 cup honey, or other sweetener
  • 2 tsp rice flour (or other GF flours/starches on hand)
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar


  • Combine flour, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder, ground ginger, salt and pepper in a large ziploc bag or bowl. Add chicken, tossing to thoroughly coat.
  • Place a cooking rack on a cookie sheet and evenly spread chicken over the rack. Bake at 375oF for 10 minutes, then broil for 8-10 minutes.
  • *You can flip the chicken and broil a little more if you choose, watch for burning
  • Using the avocado oil in a saucepan, sauté garlic and ginger for 30 seconds, then add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for a few minutes until sauce thickens.
  • Toss chicken in the sauce. Serve with rice or rice noodles, and garnish with sesame seeds and green onion (and you favourite veggie sides)
