Sweet Fire Chicken




I've never been a big fan of Chinese food. My husband on the other hand absolutely loves it. Given Sweet Fire Chicken isn't a traditional Chinese dish, it's as close to Asian as I get! Sweet and Spicy and packed with flavor!


Sweet Fire Chicken
Serves 4
WW PP=11
Cal 428, Carbs 69.5, Fat 4, Fiber 2, Protein 28

Ingredients
16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp oil, divided
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cups pineapple chunks
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup spicy pineapple sauce (I used Archer Farms)
4 cups cooked rice

Toss chicken in corn starch and flour and set aside. 

Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and saute for about one minute. Add red pepper and pineapple and stir fry for about 3-4 minutes. Add sauce and cook until heated through. Remove from skillet.

Heat remaining oil in the skillet. Add chicken; stir fry 5-10 minutes or until cooked through. Return pepper mixture to skillet; stir fry until well blended. Garnish with green onion and additional red pepper flakes if desired. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
