We show by computer simulation that chaos can occur in a sinusoidally driven second-order circuit made of 3 linear elements and a Chua's diode. Unlike other non-autonomous second-order chaotic circuits whose nonlinear element is a nonlinear capacitor, the Chua's diode is a nonlinear resistor, and is therefore simpler from a circuit-theoretic point of view.
