Aloha Chicken

This dish was created on a whim, when I decided I was in a rut and I needed something easy. I like the blend of flavors and is excellent served with rice. Serves 4.

4 chicken breasts, cubed
1 bell pepper, chopped, any color
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp minced ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 can pineapple chunks in its own juice
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less, depending on your taste)

Spray a pot with nonstick spray and set on high heat. Saute the bell pepper, onion, garlic and ginger will veggies are just a bit tender, then add the chicken. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes, making sure chicken is coated with the mixture. Add the red pepper flakes and mix well. Add the soy sauce and undrained can of pineapple chunks. Stir and wait for it to boil. Set on medium heat, cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes. Uncover, give it a good stir, and turn up to high heat to cook off some of the liquid. Let boil for about 10-15 minutes till liquid is reduced to half.

Serve! Only 3 points per serving. REALLY!

My family now wants it to be a regular at our house. It is that good!
