"This recipe combines the flavors of teriyaki sauce, pineapple, sweet onion, red pepper, cashews and a little garlic with tender chicken and swiss cheese (it's a wonderful addition!). It is easy to prepare; just requires a little simmer-time. Serve over your favorite rice."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir chicken, salt, and pepper in hot oil until chicken is almost cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil in a small skillet over medium heat; cook and stir bell pepper and onion squares until edges of peppers are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Mix teriyaki sauce, chicken broth, chopped sweet onion, and garlic powder with chicken; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is reduced by half and chicken is cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Stir bell pepper-onion mixture, cashew pieces, and hot sauce into chicken mixture and simmer until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat. Stir pineapple into chicken mixture. Arrange Swiss cheese slices over chicken mixture.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Olive oil can be substituted for the sesame oil.
  • The flavor of this sauce will vary a great deal with your choice of teriyaki sauce. I use Trader Joe's(R) Teriyaki and Wasabi sauce.

Excellent! This will be my go-to stir-fry recipe. I did make some changes to make this real-food friendly: I used frozen organic bell pepper slices, home made teriyaki sauce, fresh cut pineappl...

Liked this very much but even though I simmered it well over 20 minutes, the sauce seemed a little thin. I also did not put swiss cheese on it at the end. Sorry. Couldn't do it. It was delicious...

I tried this recipe last night and would give it 5 stars except that I need to modify the next time. I added a lot more veggies since we love them and I had left over from the previous night - s...
