SWEET & SOUR CHICKEN WITH BROWN RICE

This is a bit healthier than the restaurant version and much tastier.

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cubed
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup carrot strips
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup naturally brewed soy sauce
  • 8 ounce can pineapple chunks, juice reserved
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup toasted almonds
Directions:

Brown chicken in oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add red bell pepper, carrot, sugar snap peas and garlic.  Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and soy sauce; pour mixture into the skillet, along with the pineapple (including liquid), vinegar, sugar and ginger. Stir together and bring to a full boil.

Serve over your favorite brown rice and sprinkle with almonds.
