Directions

Preparation:

Toss chicken chunks in salted cornstarch until lightly coated. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add oil and garlic and stir gently. Add chicken chunks and cook quickly until chicken browns. Remove chicken and set aside. In the same skillet, stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Stir until the brown sugar dissolves. Add chicken back in, reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is cooked throughout and sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.

Serve over simple white or brown rice, garnished with scallions.

  • Delicious recipe, but I agree with others that it is a tad bit orangey...thinking about using a smaller mix of pineapple juice and orange juice next time - 3/23/11

  • Easy to make and has a good taste. Didn't have cornstarch on hand so used flour instead will make again! - 2/22/11

  • This was pretty good! I ended up adding about a cap-full of bourbon to give it an extra kick. I think next time I'd cut back on the OJ (it was a bit too strong for the other flavors) and thicken the sauce a little bit. We like heat so I might add more crushed pepper. I will definitely make it again! - 10/11/10
