Aloha Chicken

This recipe was found in the Taste of Home cookbook. There is no particular reason why I chose it, it just sounded very good. It was originally supposed to be made in the microwave and on the stove, but I just did it all on the stove.

Aloha Chicken-Taste of Home 2010
1 lb chicken
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
juice and zest of one lemon
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1 cup pineapple(I used tidbits)
1 15 oz can sliced peaches, drained
salt and pepper

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Pour oil into pan and brown chicken until cooked through. Remove and let it rest. Drop onion in pan and saute about 5 mins until tender. Mix together juices, zest, soy sauce, and corn starch until smooth. Add into pan and bring to a boil, then let it thicken. Add in thyme. Slice chicken and add it back to the pan, add in fruit and cook until heated through. I garnished it with some flaked coconut.

*You can serve this with plain rice, but if you want more sauce you may want to double it. We had it with coconut rice and sweet potatoes. We really liked the flavor!
