Recipe of the Week: Pineapple Chicken

Written by:
Recipe of the Week: Pineapple Chicken

You can never have enough good chicken recipes, and pineapple chicken dishes are definitely in my top 10 favorite types.

This recipe is from my bestselling cookbook The Shredded Chef and it’s really tasty. It’s pretty low-calorie as well, which means you can fit it into just about any type of meal plan.

If you have room for more calories and want to make this dish even better, add 1/2 of a cup of coconut milk. Delicious! Enjoy!

1/4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped

pinch of ground black pepper

1 tablespoon orange juice

1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks

1 banana, sliced

Put the oil in a pan and cook the onion on medium-high heat. Add the dash of pepper and cook for 1 minute, until the onion is slightly translucent.

Put the chicken, orange juice, and pineapple with juice into the pan. Bring to a boil and reduce to medium heat.

Add the banana and syrup and cook for 1 – 2 minutes.

Stir it up and reduce the heat to low. Cover it and let it simmer for about 5 – 7 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

What You Get to Eat


What did you think of this week’s recipe? Let me know in the comments below!

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

If you like what I have to say, sign up for my free newsletter and every week I'll send you awesome, science-based health and fitness tips, delicious "diet-friendly" recipes, motivational musings, and more.


What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
