Pineapple Sweet and Sour Chicken (print recipe)

What you need:
1/4 cup olive oil
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin slices
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup celery, finely sliced
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1- 8 oz can pineapple chunks, chopped and reserve juice for the sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
salt and pepper, as desired
cooked white rice

Place chicken, salt, pepper, flour and cornstarch in a ziploc bag, and shake until chicken is evenly coated.

Combine pineapple juice, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce and ketchup and stir until mixed. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add coated chicken, and cook until it starts turning brown and is almost cooked through. Add celery, carrot, onion, garlic and pineapple. Saute for about 5 minutes or until veggies start to soften. Reduce heat to medium. Add the sauce to the chicken and veggie mixture and continue to cook until it thickens, about 2-3 minutes. Serve over white rice.
