This dish was very flavorful! Like other readers, I did cut down the sugar significantly but otherwise it was easy and loved by all of us!

This was very good, not to sweet. Kids aren't big fans of pineapple but they did enjoy this very much.

This recipe is very good, we all loved it, I made a few changes as per the reviews & my own taste experience. I wanted to try & make it a one pot meal on the stovetop. I cut the chicken into smaller strips & chunks, diced the vegetables & bought crushed pineapple. I halved the sugar and added a red pepper & a few green onions. The sauce is really good, enough to coat even if you bulk the recipe up a bit. I added some garlic powder & spice to the flour mixture and shook it & the chicken in a paper bag to coat. I sautéed the chicken in fresh crushed garlic & oil then removed to a dish while I sautéed the vegetables in the same pan. When the veggies were done, I added in all the pineapple at once to warm & blend. Made the sauce, then added all the ingredients back to the same skillet. Tossed to coat & reheat. Was amazing over rice, can't wait for leftovers.
