2. In large skillet or wok, heat oil. Remove chicken from marinade with a slotted spoon and stir-fry until browned remove from pan.
3. Stir Fry veggies and then return chicken to pan.
4. Combine seasoning and 1tbsp of cornstarch, sugar,catsup, and 1/2 cup of water blend well. Add to Chicken mixture.Simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened.
5. Add pineapple chunks and heat.
serve over rice.
Review: This is a simple recipe with just the right amount of flavor, the recipe can be completed for either pork or chicken. I have tried it with both and personally prefer the chicken! I usually complete step 1 in the morning before going to work or the night before and let it marinate. I will also cut the vegetables in advance, this way when I get home I just get to throw it together!
