Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 6
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 medium sized boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 ripe pineapple, cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup tomato paste (or low sugar ketchup)
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, chopped fairly small
  • 1 red pepper
  • ½ cup pineapple or apple juice if needed
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder/flour
  • 2 tsp water
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  1. In a large skillet heat oil over medium heat and saute onion until softened. Add chicken and stir until halfway cooked. Add chopped cauliflower over the chicken - do not stir. Put the lid on your skillet and let the cauliflower steam while the chicken cooks through. When the cauliflower is still a little firm, but not raw, add pineapple, red pepper, tomato paste and stir through. Cook until cauliflower is done to your liking. At this point, judge your juices - if the dish is dry add ½ cup pineapple juice, apple juice or water.
  2. In a small bowl, mix arrowroot and water to form a slurry. Add slowly, while stirring to the skillet to thicken the sauce.
