"Everyone loves this meal, particularly our grandchildren," says Arlene Best of East Ridge, Tennessee. Frozen breaded chicken and canned pineapple make this dish a snap to prepare, and its sweet tangy taste keeps them asking for more.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup pancake syrup
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 20 pieces breaded chicken nuggets, thawed
  • Hot cooked rice

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute green pepper and onion in oil until crisp-tender; remove and keep warm. Add the broth, syrup, vinegar and soy sauce to the skillet; bring to a boil.
  2. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. Combine cornstarch and juice until smooth; gradually add to broth mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Add chicken nuggets; cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the pineapple and sauteed vegetables; heat through. Serve over rice.
