Ingredients

    6 or 8 oz. boneless/skinless chicken breast
    5 green onions
    1/2 green pepper cut into 3/4 inch squares
    2 tbsp. red wine vinegar (I used regular, didn't have the red wine on hand)
    1 tbsp. cornstarch
    1/4 c. fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
    2 tbsp. Sugar Twin brown sugar (I couldn't find Sugar Twin so I used Splenda Brown sugar blend)
    2 tbsp. ketchup
    1 tomato, diced
    1/2 c. very low sodium/fat chicken broth

Directions

1. Cut chicken into strips or 1-inch squares.
2. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Add green onion and green pepper and stir-fry over medium heat until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove and set aside.
3. Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Add chicken and stir-fry until no longer pink.
4. Mix vinegar, cornstarch, chicken broth, brown sugar, and ketchup together. Add to skillet. Cook, stirring constantly until sauce thick\ens.
5. Return onion and green pepper to skillet. Stir in pineapple chunks. Cover and cook for 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in tomato.
This is one serving from the LA Weight Loss Cooking light naturally cookbook. All of the recipes assumes you are only cooking for the person in the program. When I prepared this last night, I just did everything times 3 (ie. 1 1/2 green pepper instead of 1/2 pepper). It makes alot.
This provides you with 1 serving of protein, 2 vegetables & 1 fruit.
