Juicy chicken and tender veggies are coated in a sweet and tangy sauce! Easy enough for a weeknight!
In a medium saucepan combine the water, pineapple juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic, and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium heat then reduce to a simmer and allow to reduce by half.
While the sauce reduces, heat half of the vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken chunks and cook until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F and the chicken is lightly browned. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
Add the remaining oil and once it shimmers add the bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Cook until they are just tender, about three minutes. Add the pineapple and cook until the pineapple is hot and tender, another three minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan and heat through.
Once the sauce has reduced mix the cornstarch and water to form a slurry. Bring the sauce back to a boil and whisk in the slurry. Cook for thirty seconds then turn off the heat. Pour half the sauce over the chicken mixture and toss to coat.
Serve immediately over steamed rice with the extra sauce on the side.
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
