Pineapple Ginger Chicken

This Pineapple Ginger Chicken is tangy and sweet. No sugar. No junk. Just big bright flavors like pineapple, medjool dates, and fresh ginger. So good I bet you'll lick your plate.

2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
4 chicken breasts
1 tbsp dried parsley
salt & pepper
Pineapple Ginger Sauce
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup coconut aminos
1 cup fresh pineapple diced
5 medjool dates pitted
1 to 1 1/4 inch knob of ginger
To Finish
1 cup fresh pineapple diced
fresh parsley for topping chopped

Add olive oil to saute pan or cast iron skillet. Heat pan to medium high heat.
Add chicken to hot pan. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and dried parsley on top of each breast. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Flip. Cook other side until browned, about 5 minutes. Turn chicken over so your herbed side is facing up. Turn off heat.
Pineapple Ginger Sauce
Peel your ginger knob. (You don't need to dice it as it will blend just fine once peeled.)
Add all sauce ingredients to blender. Blend until smooth.
To Finish
Pour blended sauce into the pan with your chicken. Add cup of chopped pineapple around chicken. Reduce heat to medium low or low. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Sauce will reduce a bit.
Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve!
