Pineapple Chicken

 Pineapple chicken

 Pineapple chicken stir fry is an easy recipe that can be made in a jiffy. This is an adaption of Thai pineapple chicken but with no gravy. It tasted wonderful with bite sized chicken pieces, sweet pineapples and bell peppers. This was not the authentic Thai dinner. For me it was a side dish for fried rice.

Boneless chicken pieces - 1 lb
Pineapple cubes- 3/4 cup
Corn starch- 2 tbs
Bell pepper- 1 ( or a combo of different colors)
white onion- 1 medium
Garlic 3 -4cloves
Oyster sauce- 11/2 tsp
Soya sauce- 2 tbs
Vinegar- 1 tsp
Garlic-chilly pepper sauce- 1 1/2tsp
sugar- 1tsp
Honey - 1tsp
Oil- 3 tsp

Cut chicken pieces into bite size chunks. Mix with corn starch and salt and set aside.Drain out the water from pineapple and keep aside( I used canned ones)
Heat oil in a wok or a heavy pan and add minced garlic and saute it for about 30 to 40 seconds and add in the chicken pieces and fry for about four minutes till chicken is browned up and crunchy. Remove from heat and keep aside. In the same pan toss in onions and bell peppers and stir fry them till soft and add pineapple pieces and saute for another minute. Take 1/3 cup of pineapple juice reserved ( or you can use chicken stock) mix in the sauces and sugar and vinegar.Drop in the fried chicken and pour the sauce mixture. Allow it to boil and get a bit dried up.
( If you wish to serve this over cooked jasmine rice increase the amount of stock and add in 1/2 tsp of corn starch and bring to boil and immediately take off from flame)

Try this..

Hope you will all enjoy..
