Sweet & Sour Chicken


Another wonderful recipe from Clean Eating

To save time & make this Asian-inspired meal even simpler than it already is, pre-chop your vegetables and let your chicken marinate in the fridge for up to 8 hours ahead of time. Then, when you’re ready to eat, it’ll just take 10 minutes to get dinner on the table.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ging, grated
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch chunks (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1 inch chunks (about 1 cup)
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, cut into 1 inch cubes (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 12 sprigs fresh cilantro, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice (optional)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes.
  2. Place chicken in a large shallow dish and pour soy sauce mixture over chicken, tossing gently.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add chicken and marinade, saute for 5 minute or until vegetables are slightly tender.
