Stir Fried Chicken with Pineapple and Peppers

This is a quick and easy to prepare recipe that I found on The only deviation that I made from the recipe is that I used regular vinegar instead of white wine vinegar and I did not put any almonds in.

This turned out so good and so easy to prepare that I have made this dish twice in the past two weeks already.

1/4 cup reduced-salt soy sauce
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons mirin (sweetened Asian wine)
1 teaspoon grated ginger root
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons oil, preferably sesame oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut in 1-inch pieces
6 large green onions, cut in 1-inch pieces
2 cups fresh or frozen pepper strips
1 (20 ounce) can chunk pineapple in juice
1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)

Combine first six ingredients; stir well.
Heat oil in a large skillet and stir-fry chicken until brown and done, about 5 minutes. Remove. Add green onions, peppers and pineapple to the skillet; heat through. Pour in sauce and stir until thickened. Return chicken to skillet; heat through. Serve with brown rice; top with optional almonds.
