- 1 pound chicken breasts cut into bite-sized cubes
- ½ red pepper cut into bite-sized strips
- ½ yellow pepper cut into bite-sized strips
- 1 small yellow onion diced
- olive oil to saute chicken and vegetables
- ¾ cup pineapple chunks
For the Sauce
- ¼ cup sugar
- ⅛ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 clove garlic minced
- ¼ cup ketchup
- salt and pepper to taste
- hot pepper flakes optional
Prepare the Sauce
Combine the sugar, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and ketchup in a medium sized bowl and whisk until well mixed.
Heat a wok over medium-high heat until hot, add enough oil to coat the pan. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and saute for 3 -4 minutes.
Push the chicken to the side of the wok and add the onions and saute for 3 minutes.
Add the pepper and continue cooking for another 3 minutes. If you need a little more oil, add some.
Add the prepared sauce to the pan and stir to combine.
Add the pineapple chunks and stir again to combine. Let this cook for a couple of minutes.
Taste and season with salt and pepper. If you want to spice it up, add a little hot pepper flakes but this optional.
If you don't have a wok, a frying pan will work fine.
We served this dish over white rice and it was delicious.
