Fruits and pea pods provide a simple addition to this hearty stir-fried chicken that's ready in 30 minutes. Perfect if you love Asian cuisine.

Ingredients

2
tablespoons rice vinegar
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1
tablespoon honey
1
tablespoon cornstarch
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1
can (11 ounces) mandarin orange segments, drained and 2 tablespoons syrup reserved
1
can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained and juice reserved
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
1
package (6 ounces) frozen snow (Chinese) pea pods, thawed and drained
2
medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
Hot cooked Chinese noodles or rice, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Mix vinegar, soy sauce, honey, cornstarch, red pepper, reserved orange syrup and pineapple juice in small bowl; set aside.
  • 2 Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, gingerroot and garlic; stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Stir in soy sauce mixture. Heat to boiling. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • 3 Stir in pea pods, onions and pineapple; heat through. Fold in orange segments. Serve over noodles.
Tips  

One pound of boneless pork loin, shoulder or tenderloin can be substituted for the chicken.

Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice and has a slightly sweet, mild flavor. Look for it with the other vinegars or with the Asian ingredients. Don't confuse rice vinegar with seasoned rice vinegar. Rice vinegar is plain, and seasoned rice vinegar contains other ingredients, as its name suggests.
