Sweet Sour Microwave Chicken

My week has been sweet and sour... so today I am cooking the sweet sour chicken to 'celebrate' it.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 11 minutes

Serving: 4 servings


* 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* 8 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained, reserving juice
* 2 Tbsp. water
* 2 Tbsp. orange marmalade
* 1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cornstarch
* 1/4 cup ketchup
* 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
* 3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
* 2 Tbsp. sugar
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1/8 tsp. pepper
* 1/2 cup halved green grapes


Cut chicken into 1" pieces and combine with pineapple chunks in 9" square glass baking dish.

Combine pineapple juice, water, marmalade, cornstarch, ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper in 2 cup microwave safe glass measuring cup and mix well to blend.

Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or until mixture thickens, stirring once during cooking.

Pour over chicken and pineapple in baking dish.

Cover with microwave safe waxed paper.

Microwave on high for 4-8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, turning dish once during cooking time.

Sprinkle grapes over chicken and microwave on high for 1 more minute. Let stand, covered, for 3 minutes before serving.
