• 2 Carrots
• 1 tbsp sesame oil
• 3 boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes
• 1 tin of pineapple chunks
• 3 cups white rice (if desired)

3. Cut the red pepper, green pepper, onion and carrots and set aside in a bowl with the pineapple chunks.

My thoughts
I love this dish and I forgot how much I like pulling out my wok and making Asian food.

*** I also tried a sweet & sour shrimp with a cherry sauces as an alternative protein option.
