  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 carrot, cut into 2-inch julienne strips
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, julienned
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, julienned
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 cups frozen sugar snap peas, thawed
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-1/2-inch strips

  1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cornstarch. Stir in the water, soy sauce and reserved pineapple juice until smooth; set aside. In a large nonstick skillet or wok, stir-fry carrot in 1 tablespoon hot oil for 1 minute. Stir in the celery, sweet peppers and onion; stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add sugar snap peas; stir-fry about 1 minute longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, stir-fry chicken in remaining oil for 3-4 minutes or until no longer pink. Stir soy sauce mixture; gradually stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in vegetable mixture and pineapple chunks; heat through. Serve over rice if desired.
