Method

 
Cut chicken into small chunks and season.

Heat a little oil in a pan and fry chicken until browned and just cooked. Remove and set aside.

Lightly fry onion, ginger, pineapple and green pepper. Vegetables should still be crunchy.

Add remaining ingredients, mix and simmer until sauce thickens. Season. Toss chicken in sauce to reheat.
   
Serve with steamed rice.

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
