Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into strips or chunks
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups chopped bell peppers (I used a combination of red, yellow, and green)
  • 20 ounces crushed pineapple (or pineapple chunks), undrained
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • optional: rice, sesame seeds, sliced green onions, fresh chopped pineapple

Instructions

  • Preheat a large pan or skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Season chopped chicken with salt and pepper. When pan is hot add chicken and cook 5-10 minutes turning pieces over throughout to cook evenly. When chicken is cooked, place in a bowl and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together crushed pineapple (with liquid), soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, garlic salt, onion salt, and chili powder. Add liquid to pan with chopped peppers, cover and simmer 5-8 minutes until peppers are slightly tender. 
  • Whisk together cold water and corn starch until dissolved, then add to cooking sauce. Stir a and allow to thicken a bit. Stir in cooked chicken and cook 1-2 minutes longer until chicken is heated. Serve hot with sliced green onions and sesame seeds over rice if desired.
