Ingredients

1tablespoon cornstarchVideo
4tablespoons soy sauce low sodium
1tablespoon peanut oil or vegetable oil
1each onion finely diced
1each sweet red bell pepper julienned
1each green bell pepper julienned
2cloves garlicVideo minced

8ounces pineapple chunks in juice
3tablespoons brown sugarVideo packed
2tablespoons vinegar
1/2teaspoon ginger *
2cups rice, cooked hot

Directions

Do not drain the pineapple.

In a small bowl combine the cornstarch, soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of pineapple juice, set aside.

Heat 1/2 of the oil in a heavy non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

Sauté the onion for 2 or 3 minutes then add the red and green bell peppers and garlic. Continue stir-frying for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and set aside (keep warm).

Add the remaining oil to the skillet and cook chicken cubes until white and just cooked through. This doesn't take long, about 5 minutes, don't overcook or the chicken will dry out.

Add the vegetables into the skillet with the chicken.

Add the pineapple chunks (or tidbits), juice, brown sugar, vinegar and minced ginger.

Heat to boiling, then add the cornstarch mixture.

Stir constantly until sauce is thickened and heated through.

Serve immediately over hot cooked white rice.

Quick and easy, great for a fast weeknight meal. Nice balance of flavors although I made a few modifications. I left out the brown sugar it was sweet enough with the pineapple. I also added a teaspoon of sesame oil when cooking the chicken for a bit more authentic flavor, and we doubled the garlic and ginger. Very nice, light and fragrant, with the rice it made a colorful meal.
