  • 3 chicken breasts, chopped into bite-size chunks

Step 1

Put the bite-size chunks of chicken in a bowl, then add 2 tbsp cornstarch and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix with your hands and thoroughly coat the chicken with the cornstarch. Now, heat 3 tbsp oil in a wok or pan over high heat, then add the chicken. Fry while stirring them occasionally until they’re golden brown. While the chicken is cooking, go ahead and make the sticky pineapple sauce. In a mixing jug, combine juice of a 15 oz can of chopped pineapple, 2 tbsp light brown sugar, 3 tbsp dark soy sauce, and 1 tbsp tomato paste. Mix well.
