Who said all Chinese food has to be full of Grease and fried!!! Sometimes I just get a craving for Asian food and their flavors but none of it is really that great for you with everything they cook it in. I decided I could make a healthier version of one of my favorites- Sweet and Sour Chicken! Same great flavors with about 1/4 the fat! And I did not fry the chicken in a batter I just simply sauteed it.
Here’s what you’ll need…
2-3 Large Chicken Breasts-sliced and cubed- 1 inch pieces
1 large green bell pepper- sliced
1 large red bell pepper-sliced
1 medium onion-sliced
1 large can of pineapple pieces
1/2 cup green onion (optional)
1 Tbs of Ginger powder
1 Tsp of fresh Garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1 jar of your favorite sweet and sour sauce
Serve over White or Brown Rice
First, place your onion in the pan with 1 TBS of Olive or vegetable oil and begin took for about 5 minutes.
Then add your peppers and cook for another 5 minutes. I like mine to have a little crisp still but you can cook them longer if you want them to be completely soft.
Take veggies out and set a side.
Next, slice up your chicken into cubes and season them with salt, pepper, & Ginger.
Place in a skillet pan with your Garlic and cook your meat. 8-10 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
While your Chicken cooks go a head and Start your rice!
Now add in your pineapple chunks. Make sure you drain the juice.
Now comes the Bright and colorful veggies! Mix everything together!
Now comes the good stuff! The Sweet and Sour Sauce!!!! Pour over and mix all together to make sure every piece is coded!
Serve over rise and I served it with a garden salad with Ginger dressing! Yummmm Enjoy!
