Coconut Pineapple Chicken

Soak 4 to 5 chicken breasts in 1/2 cup pineapple juice. (I used skinless chicken thighs.) Put one or 2 tablespoons oil in skillet. (I used coconut oil) Add 1/3 red onion and 1 or 2 tablespoons garlic, lightly saute. Add 1 can chopped pineapple and chicken. Cook chicken, then add 1 can coconut milk. Cook but don't boil. Get it thick on medium

I found this recipe to have lots of potential. It is still a bit flat and could use some perfecting in seasoning. It needs salt, pepper, and probably more pineapple juice. You could use curry, lemon grass, or other Thia spices. I also thought the addition of crystalized ginger would be excellent.
