Cyndi's Spicy Sweet n' Sour Chicken

Submitted by: CYNDIDAVISUSA

Introduction

This is made with Brown Sugar Spenda Blend, because my DH is diabetic. If you choose to make it with plain brown sugar, just adjust the amount up to taste [brown sugar Splenda is way sweeter than regular], probably about 4 packed tsp, which only adds about 10 calories per serving. And I used red and yellow peppers, only because we don't like green here. So, again, you pick. This is made with Brown Sugar Spenda Blend, because my DH is diabetic.

Directions

Cut peppers into thin strips and cook in sprayed nonstick pan until just tender [I like mine a tad browned, so I cook them FAST and hot]. Sprinkle a little garlic powder to taste. Set aside.

Cook chicken in a sprayed nonstick pan until white through. Add brown sugar and spices and cook over med low heat til all chicken is coated. Add pineapple tidbits and vinegar and stir. Allow to simmer, adding a few drops of pineapple juice and cook down to bring sauce to preferred thickness.

Remove from heat and toss peppers together with chicken mixture. Serve over rice.
