Hawaiian-style chicken is a great dish to serve with white rice or even pasta. The preparation of the chicken is simple, but the taste makes this dish outstanding. The sweet pineapple ring adds a nice flavor to this dish. I have used turkey cutlets with great results too! Make this Hawaiian-style chicken for dinner tonight.


  • 1.5 lb boneless skinless chicken cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 bell pepper cut into chunks (red will give the sweetest taste)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 3/4 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 TBSP soy sauce
  • 3 TBSP brown sugar
  • 2 Cups pineapple chunks (measured without juice)
  • 2/3 Cups pineapple juice
  • 1-1/4 Cups chicken broth
  • 2 TBSP cornstarch


  1. Set cooker on saute function and add olive oil, give it a minute to heat up. Add onions to oil and saute until soft and transparent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add chicken pieces and continue to saute mixture until outside of chicken is not pink
  3. Toss in the garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute. Next, add ginger powder, red pepper flakes, salt, black pepper and stir well
  4. Mix in a bowl these ingredients: brown sugar, soy sauce, broth and pineapple juice. Mix and pour into pot.
  5. Fold gently into this mixture the pineapple pieces and bell pepper. Stir until well mixed and then turn off the pot.

  7. Set the pot temperature to saute again. In a cup combine 2 TBSP cornstarch with 3 TBSP cold water, stirring briskly til there are no lumps. Stir this into the pot.
  8. Once it bubbles and thickens you are ready to serve over a large serving of rice
