Hawaiian Chicken & Pineapple Gravy

I made this recipe up about four years ago. It is so yummy!! A blend of smoky bacon, juicy pineapple, and grilled chicken. It's perfectly light for a warm summer day and the flavors are from another world!

Hawaiian Chicken & Pineapple Gravy

  • 5-6 large chicken breasts
  • 4 strips of smoked bacon
  • 1 can chicken stock
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • dash of salt
optional tip* (For a stronger flavor try adding 1 Tbsp of Teryaki Marinade to gravy or use it as a dip for chicken)

Place chicken and bacon in a 13 X 9 inch baking dish. Add all ingredients together except for the cornstarch and pour over chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Drain liquid and set aside. Heat up charcoal grill. Cut chicken lengthwise into strips. Grill about 3 minutes on each side. Mix cornstarch with cooled liquid and then bring to a boil in saucepan. Remove from heat and stir for 1 minute. Sauce should now be a thick gravy. Arrange chicken strips and bacon on large platter. Pour gravy on top.
