To save time and make this healthy sweet and sour chicken recipe even simpler than it already is, pre-chop your vegetables and let your chicken marinate in the fridge up to eight hours ahead of time. Then, when you and your loved ones are ready to eat, it'll take just 10 minutes to get your Asian-inspired dinner on the table!
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes. Place chicken in a large shallow dish. Pour soy sauce mixture over chicken, tossing gently. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and marinade and sauté for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add bell peppers and onion and cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables are slightly tender. Add pineapple and cook for 2 more minutes. Sprinkle the sweet & sour chicken with cilantro and serve immediately over rice for a complete meal, if desired.
No need to stop for Asian takeout tonight. This dish hits all the sweet, salty and tart notes you’d expect from a decadent stir-fry – you’d never know it came out of your slow cooker! Serve over brown rice.
