Ingredients

  • 1 pound Chicken breast cubed
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil divided
  • 1 clove Garlic finely minced
  • 1 cup Red bell pepper large dice
  • 1 cup Green bell pepper large dice
  • 1 cup Pineapple chunks

Sauce

  • 1/3 cup Ketchup
  • 1/3 cup Pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic finely minced

Instructions

  • Season the cubed chicken breast with salt, pepper, and onion powder. 
  • In a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the cubed chicken breast. Saute until cooked through, approximately 10 minutes, and set aside. 
  • Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the pan along with the garlic, red and green bell peppers, and pineapple. Saute until peppers have softened, approximately 5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Add the cornstarch to the pineapple juice and stir until fully combined. 
  • Add ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, ground ginger, and garlic to the skillet. Stir together over medium-high heat. Add the pineapple juice and cornstarch mixture stirring together so there are no lumps.
  • Cook sauce until it thickens enough to coat your spoon, approximately 5-10 minutes.
  • Add chicken, peppers, and pineapple to the sauce and stir to coat. 
  • Serve over white rice as a meal or on skewers as an appetizer.
