Sweet & Sour Chicken
“This 20-minute meal delivers a faster, lighter and more flavorful takeout alternative. It's chock-full of fresh, crispy veggies and juicy chicken pieces, and it reheats well for meal-prep lunches. If you like heat, sub Sriracha for some of the ketchup.”
¼ cup no-salt-added ketchup
¼ cup pineapple juice
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, divided
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
8 ounces small broccoli florets
2 cups chopped red bell pepper
1 cup diagonally sliced scallions (1-inch)
3 cups cooked brown rice
1Whisk ketchup, pineapple juice, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
2Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
3Wipe the pan clean; return to high heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add broccoli and bell pepper; cook until charred, about 5 minutes. Add scallions and cook for 1 minute. Return the chicken to the pan and add the ketchup mixture. Cook until bubbly and the sauce coats the chicken. Serve in shallow bowls over rice.
