Sweet and Sour Chicken PictureSweet and Sour Chicken (Adapted from CL)

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" chunks
3/4 cup chopped onion

1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped cashews

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add garlic, ginger, red pepper and chicken - sauté until the chicken is cooked - about 5 to 7 minutes. Scoop the chicken mixture out and place on a place - set aside.

Stir in onion and celery to the pan and place it back over the heat - sauté until crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Add the pineapple chunks - cook 30 seconds.

In a small bowl, whisk together pineapple juice, soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch and sugar.

Place the chicken mixture back into the pan - stir in the juice mixture and bring to boil. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with the cashews to serve.

Makes 4 servings.
