Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 orange bell pepper cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup Dole Fridge Pack Pineapple Chunks (juice reserved for sauce)

FOR SAUCE

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (optional)
  • 2 green onions chopped for garnish
  • 2 cups cooked rice for serving
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Instructions

  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, and then add the chicken. Cook until chicken is no longer pink on the outside, about five minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in the chopped bell peppers. Sauté until tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • While the peppers are cooking, whisk together the soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and chili paste. Then whisk in the corn starch.
  • Stir in the pineapple and the sauce. Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 3 minutes until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions and serve over rice.
