Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken

Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken


Yamnuska Backcountry Kitchen’s Hawaiian Chicken dehydrated dinner entrée is a pleasing blend of western and asian influences. Our recipe for this dinner takes it’s flavour cues from traditional pineapple chicken recipes commonly found in north american cookbooks.

Plus we add a hint of asian flavourings and the sharpness of savoury coconut to produce a tasty chicken dish with a pleasing balance of tangy and sweet. Unlike many versions of this dish, our recipe is not overly sweet and no extra sugar is added during cooking.

The combination of red & green bell peppers simmering together slowly with pieces of pineapple in a lite coconut sauce produces a rich and flavourful chicken dish that is a consistent crowd pleaser.

Best served over rice, we always bring extra portions on our trips for the inevitable request from our guests “….please, may I have some more?”
