Sweet and Sour Chicken

  • Sesame oil
  • 1 TB minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium)
  • 1 heaping TB cornstarch
  • 1 TB brown sugar
  • 1 TB vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • dash of red pepper (to taste)
  • two chicken breasts, in smallish chunks
  • 1 can pinapple chunks, with juice
  • handful of dried cherries (I would use fresh, but I didn’t have any.)
  • 1 red pepper (chopped)
  • 1 onion (chopped)

Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet, throw in the garlic and allow it to brown a little. In a separate container mix the soy sauce and cornstarch until completely dissolved, then add the pineapple juice, brown sugar, vinegar, ginger, white pepper and red pepper Add the chicken to the skillet. When the chicken is cooked a little, add the pinapple, cherries, red pepper and onion. After a little, add the soy sauce mixture and bring everything to a boil. Then simmer until everything is cooked to your taste.
Serve over rice or noodles. Delicious – and healthy!
