Ingredients
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup lite (or less sodium) soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 1 cup diced onion (I use frozen diced onion for a shortcut)
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple tidbits in juice, NOT drained
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins diced into bite-sized pieces
  • 6 slices cooked bacon chopped
  • Garnish: sliced green onions
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F (220C). Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. In the prepared dish (or in a separate bowl) whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, and chicken broth. Add uncooked rice, onion, bell pepper, pineapple (with its juice), and raw chicken.
  3. Cover dish tightly with foil. Bake for 55 minutes. Uncover and give it all a stir.

  4. Sprinkle with cooked, chopped bacon.

  5. Return the dish to the oven, uncovered, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until bacon is crispy and sauce has thickened.

  6. Let stand 5 minutes before serving (the sauce will continue to thicken as it sits). Garnish with chopped green onions.
