Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chutney Chicken

Whether you are looking for an easy weeknight meal or a sunday comfort food classic, this recipe for sweet and sour pineapple chutney chicken hits the spot.  To take most of the work out of this recipe we use our Jamaican Jerk Pineapple Chutney as the base of the sauce along with a little tomato puree to make a savory yet sweet and sour pineapple sauce.   

Sweet and Sour Pineapple Chutney Chicken

Ingredients:

1 pound boneless chicken thighs (skin removed) diced into 1 inch pieces
1 1/2 Tbs Flour
1 Tbs Sesame Oil (vegetable oil or avocado oil is fine as well)
1 Medium Carrot cut into ribbons with a vegetable peeler then cut into 3 even pieces  1 Medium Onion diced 
1 Red Bell Pepper diced
16 oz can Tomato Puree
1 Jar Wozz! Jamaican Jerk Pineapple Chutney
1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar (or whatever vinegar you have on hand)
1 Tbsp Sugar
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp salt
1 cup dry Rice 
Sesame seeds and chopped green onion for garnish if desired.

Method:

Cook your rice according to package directions.  Set aside.

Season diced chicken pieces with salt then toss with flour in a medium sized bowl.  You just need enough flour to lightly coat the chicken.  

In a large skillet on medium high heat, add your sesame oil and sear chicken on all sides until golden brown (no need to cook all the way through)  
Remove from pan and set aside. 

In the same pan, on medium heat add diced onion, peppers and carrot, sautee until the vegetables start to soften - approximately 3 minutes. 

Stir in Wozz! Jamaican Jerk Pineapple Chutney , tomato puree and 1/2 cup water.  (I rinsed the can of tomato puree with 1/2 cup water and used that)
Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

Adjust seasoning of sauce to your liking, I added a tablespoon of sugar and rice vinegar, you may want to add a little more or less depending on your sweetness preference or not at all.

Return browned chicken pieces to the sauce and simmer until cooked through - approximately 7-8 minutes.  *If your sauce seems too thick you can always add a tablespoon or more of water to sauce while cooking for desired consistency

Serve over rice.  Enjoy!
