1 cup
pineapple juice
1/2 cup
chicken broth
1/4 cup
soy sauce
3 tbsp
brown sugar
2 tbsp
1 tbsp
1 lb
boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups
diced pineapple
red bell peppers, diced
red onion, diced
garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp
grated fresh ginger
green onions, sliced
1 tsp
sesame seeds
Salt and pepper to taste


In a medium bowl, whisk together the pineapple juice, chicken broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Set it aside.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken to the pan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook the chicken, stirring occasionally, until it begins to brown, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the pineapple, red bell pepper, and red onion. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the pineapple and peppers begin to soften, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook until they become fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the sauce into the skillet and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve immediately topped with the green onions and sesame seeds or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
