      Simple and easy with loads of flavor. I mixed some cornstarch in with the pineapple juice to make a thicker sauce. I also add a little crushed red pepper flakes. I used a green pepper because that was what I had on hand. Made for Aus/NZ Make My Recipe Summer Tag Game.

      This GREAT TASTING CHICKEN & easy-to-make recipe is a definite keeper! Served it over a brown rice & sweet pea combo & it was very, very satisfying! Yet another nice way to vary my chicken breast dinners! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in I Recommend Tag]

      Very easy to prepare! A quick and delicious supper for any time of the week! Happily, I had everything except the snowpeas, so I rummaged for green vegetables and found three small zucchini. DH sliced them into rings instead of batons, so I stuck with the 'theme', and asked him to dice the red pepper and cube the chicken. I prepared as directed, except that I didn't take the chicken out of the pan, I continued to add the other ingredients to it... in that we had cubed rather than sliced the chicken, I think it benefitted from cooking through. I served this over steamed white rice, garnished with spring onions, and we loved it - not as tart as a sweet'n'sour can sometimes be, a well-balanced dish for flavour, texture and colour. Thank you Tisme!!! made for Edition 9, make My Recipe, Aus/NZ Forum
