Pineapple Sweet & Sour Chicken

Pineapple Sweet & Sour Chicken
From a Minute Rice recipe I found on a coupon

2 cups Minute Rice, uncooked (I used brown rice)
1 20oz can Dole Pineapple Chunks
2 TBS canola oil
1 medium green pepper, cut into chunks
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced (omitted b/c I don't like them)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup sweet & sour sauce
2 TBS reduced sodium soy sauce

Prepare rice according to package directions.

Drain pineapple; reserve 2 TBS juice.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add peppers, onions and mushrooms; cook until vegetables are tender crisp. Remove vegetables from skillet; set aside.

Cook chicken in same skillet until chicken is browned and cooked through. Add vegetables back to skillet with sweet & sour sauce, soy sauce, pineapple chunks and reserved juice. Heat through. Serve with cooked rice.

Serves 6.

Another quick and easy recipe that's a great way to get in protein, whole grains, and vegetables. Also good heated up the next day. Who needs to order Chinese when you can just make this?
