No Fry Sweet & Sour Chicken



Introduction

Took a sweet & sour recipe we enjoyed and tried to make it a little quicker to fix and better for you by taking out the frying! It makes plenty of delicious sauce, and you can add more vegetables to it depending on your family's preference!

Ingredients

    1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, diced into bite sized pieces
    1 16-oz can pineapple chunks in juice, juice reserved
    2/3 cup sugar
    1/2 cup vinegar
    4 TBS cornstarch
    4 TBS soy sauce
    2 tsp chicken bouillon
    2 TBS cooking oil
    1 cup bias sliced carrot (2 medium)
    2 tsp minced garlic
    1/2 green bell pepper, in 1/2" pieces
    1/2 red bell pepper, in 1/2" pieces
    1 large celery stalk, bias sliced
    1/2 medium white onion, in 1/2" pieces
    3 cups hot cooked brown rice

Directions

Create sauce by draining pineapple, reserving juice (set pineapple aside). Add enough water to the juice to equal 3 cups. Add sugar, vinegar, cornstarch, soy sauce and bouillon. Set aside.

Pour 1 TBS oil in wok or large skillet (add more if necessary during cooking), heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 5-10 minutes or until no longer pink and cooked through, remove from skillet and set aside. Add more oil to skillet (enough to equal about 1 TBS total). Stir-fry carrots and garlic in hot oil for 1 minute, add remaining vegetables and stir fry for 3-5 minutes or until desired crisp-tenderness. Add chicken back to wok and push mixture out from the center.

Stir sauce and make sure ingredients are evenly combined. Pour sauce into center of mixture and cook and stir until thickened and bubbly (you will see the color start to darken as it thickens). Continue cooking and stirring for one more minute after it begins to bubble. Add in at about half of the reserved pineapple, or all of it if desired, depending on your taste preference (I usually add half).
