A sweet and savory pineapple sauce is combined with chicken and rice in this simple and delicious recipe.  


  • 1 can (20 ounces) chunk pineapple, drained with liquid reserved
  • 1 medium onion, sliced and separated into rings,
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cut in large pieces
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 2-1/2 cups hot cooked rice


  1. Place the ketchup and reserved pineapple liquid into a measuring cup and add enough water to make 2-1/2 cups total.
  2. In a separate bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the soy sauce and set aside.
  3. Put the olive oil into a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once it begins to shimmer, add the onion and celery and sauté for 4 minutes. Stir in the chicken and then pour in the ketchup mixture. Add a few pinches of salt and pepper and then bring the mixture to a simmer.
  4. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes before adding the soy sauce mixture to the pan. Cover the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes before adding the rice, stirring to combine and serving.
