Sweet and salty flavors go perfectly together and how easy it is to pair ham and pineapple with flavors of ginger and basil. At the center of the dish, Free Range Chicken will pair very well with this taste explosion.
2 lbs chicken breast pounded 1/2 thick
salt and pepper to taste
3 cloves garlic chopped
1 medium pineapple diced
6 ounces smoked ham diced
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 tbs fresh basil chopped
2 whole green onion sliced
3 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs ginger chopped
1 tbs brown sugar
1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Sauté them in olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat for about 5 minutes on each side.
2. Remove the chicken and allow them to rest. In the same pan sauté the shallots, ginger and garlic and cook for about 2 minutes while stirring on medium high.
3. Now add the brown sugar, ham, pineapple, green onion, chicken stock and soy.
4. Cook the sauce for about five minutes, add basil, and place the chicken back in to the sauce. Season to taste and serve.
