"This recipe deserves 5 stars and I'd give more if I could. My pickiest son even loved this. I took others suggestions and doubled the sauce and got a 20 ounce can crushed pineapple and kept the soy ..." See moresauce the same at 1/4 cup. I also added a heaping tablespoon of ketchup to give it that reddish color you see at restaurants. This was restaurant caliber and I'm adding it to my recipe box to make again and again in the future!"

"With some changes this was a very tasty dish. First of all, I followed advice gleaned from a long-ago Chinese room-mate: always stir-fry boneless chicken cubes first (and quickly over high heat), a..." See moredding them back to the stir-fry once the vegetables are tender crisp. Chicken breast can be very easily overcooked. Here are the other changes I made: I minced up 2 garlic and about a one-inch piece of fresh ginger. I used half of it to stir-fry the chicken and the other half to stir fry the vegetables. Speaking of the vegetables, I added broccoli and green onion (which I had on hand)to the mix. For the sauce, I followed the advice of many reviewers and doubled the vinegar and brown sugar, also adding the juice from a larger tin of pineapple cubes. Given the extra liquid, I decided to increase the amount of cornstarch from 1 to 2 Tbsp, which was perfect. With the extra sauce, I could have added more vegetables. Next time I would increase the peppers. I served it with brown rice. A very satisfying dinner."
