0 Pineapple Sweet and Sour Chicken

I love Chinese food and really never make it at home! This is a great and easy recipe that is wonderful!
(side note, Nate DOES NOT like Chinese food (it is too much of a variance from his steak and potatoes) and REALLY doesn't like pineapples next to his meat (he is thinking "there are pineapples where my potatoes should go")! SOOO if you husband or significant other is TRULY a steak and potatoes man, you might want to steer clear of this dish! To all others. . . Enjoy!)

2 cups Minute White Rice, uncooked
1 can (20 oz) Dole Pineapple Chunks
2 Tbsps vegetable oil
1 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into chunks
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup sweet and sour sauce
2 Tbsps less sodium soy sauce

Prepare rice according to package directions
Drain pineapple; reserve 2 Tbsps juice
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add peppers, onions and mushrooms; cook until vegetables are tender crisp. Remove vegetables from skillet; set aside.
Cook chicken in same skillet until chicken is browned and cooked through. Add vegetables back to skillet with sweet and sour sauce, pineapple chunks and reserved juice. Heat through.. Serve with hot cooked rice.
Serves 6.

Pin It!
