Pineapple Chicken

I think that almost everyone has prepared chicken with pineapple at least once in a life. But today I offer you a new interesting variant that is not like a traditional recipe in its method of preparation and in taste. The meat turns out very juicy, with a spicy hint of sweetness. The sweetness of pineapples is interspersed with fragrant fried vegetables, making the taste pleasant and balanced. By the way, you can use fresh pineapple. In this case, add a pinch of sugar to achieve the necessary harmony of flavors.







Steps

1. Combine salt and all the spices in a deep dish : dried garlic, paprika, oregano, thyme and black pepper. Pour 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in the spice mixture (we need the rest for roasting) and mix.

2. Wash chicken and dry it with paper napkins from excess moisture. Rub chicken thighs with a mixture of spices and oil on all sides. Leave the meat for 30 minutes to marinate, or even longer if you have time.

3. Pour the remaining vegetable oil without smell into the pan. Put the pan on fire and let oil warm properly. Then put it to the chicken thighs and fry them until golden brown on both sides. I have a small frying pan, so I cook the meat pieces by parts.
