No Fry Sweet & Sour Chicken

Submitted by: SANDRA_92083

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 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, diced into bite sized pieces
    1 20-oz can pineapple chunks in juice, juice reserved
    1/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup Splenda
    1/2 cup vinegar
    4 TBS cornstarch
    4 TBS reduced sodium soy sauce
    1 tsp chicken bouillon
    1 tsp vegetable bouillon
    2 TBS olive oil
    3 medium carrots, bias sliced
    3/4 green bell pepper, in 1/2" pieces
    1/2 red bell pepper, in 1/2" pieces
    2 large celery stalks, bias sliced
    1/2 large white onion, in 1/2" pieces
    4-oz canned mushrooms (weight when drained)
    1 TBS minced garlic
    3 cups hot cooked brown rice

Directions

Create sauce by draining pineapple, reserving juice - will equal about 1 cup. 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 10-15 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 (should have about 2 cups pineapple reserved), depending on your taste preference (I usually add half).
