1/2 cup finely chopped pineapple
1/2 ts grated ginger
1 TBL lime juice
2 TBL soy sauce
1 TBL sherry

1 tsp flour
1tsp softened butter

Chicken breasts cut in to strips
Butter for cooking
Chopped peanuts

Mix the first 5 ingredients. If you’re feeling brave, you can marinate the chicken in a bit of the sauce, but limit it to about 15 minutes. If you over do it, the acid in the sauce will start cooking the chicken and make it tough.

Heat the sauce and finish it by stirring in the flour and softened butter. Cook until thickened.

Place the chicken on skewers and cook in hot butter until browned on all sides. Place on a bed of rice and top with sauce. Top with chopped peanuts. Serve with condiments below.
