Sweet & Sour Spicy Chicken

Ditch the take-out and prepare it in your kitchen instead! Today I served up a bowl of Sweet & Sour Spicy Chicken right in my own home. It’s a lighter and much healthier option that is ready to eat in less than 30 minutes — the longest part is cooking the rice… can you believe it?

I allowed my chicken to roast in the oven while the rice was cooking. In the meantime, I unloaded the dishwasher and got my other ingredients ready. Seriously, you’ll be eating in no time!

This recipe can technically serve four — I made this as a dinner for two with just enough for lunch the next day for the both of us!

Here is what you’ll need:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup pineapples
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less to your liking)
  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
  • 1.5 cups brown rice + 3 cups water
