video instructions available below 👇 


– 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 red bell pepper, sliced
– 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
– 1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or canned)
– 1 cup sliced mushrooms
– 1 small onion, thinly sliced
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– ½ cup teriyaki sauce
– 2 tablespoons soy sauce
– 1 tablespoon brown sugar
– 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Cooked rice or quinoa for serving
– Chopped green onions and sesame seeds for garnish


1. Begin by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
3. In the same skillet, add a bit more olive oil if needed, then add the sliced bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, and minced garlic. Sauté for 4-5 minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
4. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, along with the pineapple chunks.
5. In a small bowl, whisk together the teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, and grated ginger. Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables in the skillet.
6. Allow the mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and the sauce to slightly thicken.
7. Serve the Hawaiian Chicken Skillet over cooked rice or quinoa, garnished with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
