My plan was to make something fast…quick….wiki...on this Friday night so I could enjoy the sunset on the water with my skipper instead of spending my time in the galley. This meal can be made in 8 minutes flat. Even in a galley!
We eat a lot of chicken, so I wanted to make something different. I thought I could easily make this recipe with pork. But then I started thinking about cute pigs. And cows. And big brown eyes and soft noses. I occasionally get this wave of vegetarianism that comes over me. I want to want to eat less meat, like my friend Torie, who turned me on to Gardein.
Wiki Hawaiian Chicken (or Chick’n)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 lb. chicken breast chunks (or 1 bag of Chicken Gardein)
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
1/2 cup chopped scallions
Sauté the chick’n in the vegetable oil. For real chicken, sauté until cooked through, about 6 minutes. For fake chicken (and I still can’t believe I’m cooking with fake anything, let alone a fake animal) it just needs to be heated through.
Add pineapple chucks, pineapple juice, soy sauce and brown sugar. Stir into the chick’n chunks and heat through. Add chopped scallions and serve! Fast, delicious and meat-free.
But to all you carnivore gourmands out there, don’t you worry. This Galley Pirate will be back on track with some luscious pork medallions and pressure cooker roast beef in the near future!
Now, blow out the galley candle and out to the cockpit with my skipper. Happy Friday!
