4 cups cooked rice (2 cups uncooked)
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper – taste
1 green bell pepper – roughy chopped into big chunks
1 20-ounce can pineapple chunks – with juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar – any kind is fine
1/2 cup chicken broth
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/8 cup water

1)  Start rice (2 cups uncooked) and slice 2 boneless chicken breasts into thin strips.

2)  In a large non-stick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium heat.  Season chicken strips with salt and pepper and add to skillet.  Brown chicken until no longer pink and move to a plate.  Add bell pepper to skillet and cook for 1 minute.  Stir in pineapple chunks with juice, brown sugar, vinegar, and chicken broth. Simmer for 5 minutes.
