Having only used this pan a couple of times in the past week, I can already tell I am in LOVE with it and can't wait to purchase a few more pans from this set. Not only is it pretty, it's useful, easy to clean, and durable! Be sure to go check out OXO's new line of Stainless Steel Pro Cookware!
Pineapple Coconut Chicken
For the chicken:
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into chunks (thighs also work well)
2 tbs melted coconut oil
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 1/2 tbs low sodium soy sauce
2 tbs coconut milk (unsweetened)
For the sauce:
2 tsp freshley grated ginger root
4 cloves minced garlic
1 1/4 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tsp sriracha hot sauce (optional)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbs sake (optional)
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 pineapple, cored peeled and cut into small chunks ( I use my OXO pineapple slicer for this)
Additional 2 tbs coconut oil for frying chicken
Scallions and unsweetened coconut flakes for garnish
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small mixing bowl, combine all of the chicken ingredients together, evenly coating the chicken. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
When ready to prepare, heat 2 tbs of coconut oil in a wok over medium high heat. Once the pan is hot, add chicken and all the contents of the bowl.
Give a few quick tosses and evenly brown the chicken.
Remove chicken from the pan and place a plate. It is ok if the chicken has not cooked through yet!
Into the same wok add, all of the sauce ingredients and simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally getting any of the chicken bits off the bottom.
Once the sauce starts to thicken a bit and the pineapple is breaking down, add the chicken back in.
Toss everything in the pan a couple of times evenly coating the chicken in the pineapple sauce.
Once the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat, salt and pepper to taste and serve with rice or noodles. Garnish with green onions and coconut flakes.
