With only a handful of ingredients, this sweet and sour version of Asian Chicken Tenders is definitely among our favorite easy diabetic dinner recipes. Plus, it boasts lighter versions of flavorful teriyaki sauce and pineapple tidbits, but still packs full taste.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1 can (8-ounce) pineapple tidbits with reduced-sugar juice, juice reserved

What to Do

  1. Place chicken and 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce in resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes. Remove chicken and discard marinade. 
  2. Coat a nonstick wok or skillet with cooking spray. Preheat over high heat.
  3. Add about half the chicken to wok. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat as needed. Remove first batch to a serving platter and repeat with remaining chicken. Remove second batch. 
  4. Add green onion, pineapple, 1 tablespoon reserved pineapple juice, and remaining teriyaki sauce to wok. Cook about 1 minute. Spoon over chicken tenders and serve immediately.

Chicken needs more time than 2 minutes to cook. I also added half a green bell pepper, cut in chunks. My husband loved it.

Thank you for your comment! We're glad to hear you and your husband loved it. We've also adjusted the cooking time on the chicken.
