One of my very first dishes I ever made many years ago and was very successful! Serve it with corn fritters for a nice alternative. I can post the recipe for the fritters later.

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

4
chicken pieces (boneless)
1
clove garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/3 c
canola oil for frying
(1) 16 oz
canned pineapple chunks (reserve juice for sauce)
few
red and green grapes
few
slices preserved ginger (optional)

FOR THE SAUCE

2 tsp
cornstarch
1 Tbsp
soy sauce, low sodium
3 Tbsp
vinegar (white or cider)
1/4 c
granulated sugar or honey
2/3 c
chicken stock
2/3 c
pineapple syrup or juice

TO GARNISH

little finely chopped canned pineapple and (optional) preserved ginger

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the oil, and sauté the crushed garlic. Coat the chicken with the flour and seasoning, and fry until browed on all sides. If preferred, the chicken may be cut into neat cubes before cooking.
2
Lower the heat, add pineapple pieces, grapes and ginger. Continue cooking over low heat for 15-20 minutes, or until tender.
3
For the sauce, blend all ingredients together, put into a pan, and boil for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Garnish the chicken with pineapple and ginger and serve with the sauce (or you can pour the sauce over the chicken so that it absorbs all that goodness!)
