    6 chicken breast halves(skin and bones)
    1/2 cup vegetable oil or canola oil
    1 large onion, cut in half and sliced very thin
    4 stalks celery, sliced thin on an angle
    1 tablespoon mild curry powder
    1(20ounce)can crushed pineapple
    sea salt, to taste
    freshly cracked pepper, to taste
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1(14 1/2ounce)can chicken broth

    Fry chicken breasts in a large pan with oil until cooked, about 30 minutes.

    Remove from pan and remove all but 2 tablespoons of the oil.

    Add the curry powder to the oil and cook for 1 minute on medium heat.

    Add onions and celery, cooking until the celery is soft.

    Add pineapple, broth and a small amount of salt and pepper, if desired.

    Simmer for 2 minutes and add chicken back into the pan.

    Cook, simmering for 35-45 minutes with pan covered.

    Remove chicken.

    Make a loose paste with cornstarch and a small amount of water.

    Add to ingredients in pan, simmering on high for a few minutes until sauce is a bit thick.

    Pour over chicken.

    Serve with rice or couscous.

    HOW RETRO! I love it! I haven't heard or even seen polynesian chicken in AGES. If you want to get ultra retro you can serve it in a scooped out Pineapple skin LOL!
