  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a wok. Add bell pepper and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add scallions and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove chicken from marinade and add to the wok; discard marinade. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the centre, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Combine pineapple juice and cornstarch in a bowl; mix together. Add pineapple chunks to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in pineapple juice mixture and bring to a boil. Simmer until sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can also use a large skillet instead of a wok.

Delicious! No wok - still turned out great. I browned the chicken in batches then the peppers and added green onions when combined. I doubled everything so I would have leftovers. Served over white rice. Quick & easy - great for a weeknight dinner. Read More

This is a very simple and easy recipe that tastes great! I like to add peppers mushrooms and water chestnuts or swap out the green onion for red or sweet... whatever I have on-hand. It's always turned out great. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and was surprised to read so many positive reviews. My wife and I found it to be bland and without much flavor. We had to add a lot of seasonings at the table to give it any flavor at all. Very disappointed. Won't make it again. Read More

I used a 20 oz can of pineapple chunks and it was delicious! Next time I will use a can of pineapple tidbits instead of chunks just so the pieces are smaller. GREAT simple delicious weeknight meal! Read More
