Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • A few tablespoons of flour
  • ⅓ cup corn oil for cooking the chicken
  • 250 gr. /9 oz. pineapple cut into bite size pieces
  • ½ cup the juice of the pineapple
For the Sauce
  • 4 tbsp corn oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • 1 red pepper, julienned
  • 1 ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 300 ml/ 10 fl oz chicken stock
  • 400 ml/14 fl oz. orange juice
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 4 tsp sugar
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Cut the chicken in strips.
  2. Take a bowl throw the flour and the chicken strips and mix to cover them with a thin layer of flour.
  3. In a wok or in a skillet heat the oil to become hot but not smoking and fry slightly the chicken strips in batches.
  4. Remove the skillet from the stove and set aside the chicken pieces.
For the Sauce
  1. Either at the same wok or in a big pot, as I did, pour the 4 tbsp of corn oil.
  2. Add the onion, carrots and pepper and stir fry for about five minutes or until somewhat tender.
  3. Pour the stock, the orange juice, the lemon juice and the ginger and increase the heat to high.
  4. When it starts to boil pour the soy sauce, the vinegar and the sugar.
  5. Stir to mix and lower heat to medium.
  6. Add the chicken and cook for about 10 minutes.
  7. Add the pineapple chunks.
  8. In the pineapple juice I dissolved 1 tbsp of corn flour and added it to the pot, to make the sauce thicker. If your sauce is already thick just add the pineapple juice plain and cook for another couple of minutes.
  9. I served it over rice noodles and it was finger-licking.
