MrsDrPoe: Asian Chicken

One of our favorite favorite Asian dishes that I make is a little something I like to call Asain Chicken. (How original...) I got the original idea from a recipe for a shrimp dish somewhere in my mother-in-law's kitchen. One note - I never measure the ingredients in this dish, so precision is not important for a tasty result (3-4 servings).

First the ingredients: 2 Tbs butter (not shown), 2 Tbs flour (not shown), 1 can pineapple chunks (with juice), 1/2 cup vinegar, 1/2 green bell pepper (cut into approx 1" chunks), 8 oz chicken breast (cut into approx 1" chunks), 2 tsp garlic powder, 1 Tbs chili powder, 1/4 cup ketchup, 1 1/2 Tbs soy sauce, 5 Tbs sugar (not shown), 1 tsp salt (not shown), 1 tsp pepper (not shown), and cooked rice (not shown).

Melt the butter in a 10" skillet on med-high heat. Add flour and whisk together to form a roux. After cooking the roux for 1-2 minutes, add pineapple juice and vinegar. Whisk these ingredients together until smooth.

Add remaining ingredients (except peppers, pineapples and chicken), and whisk to thoroughly combine. Allow to thicken for 1-2 minutes, whisking occasionally.

Add in peppers, pineapples and chicken. Stir with a heat-resistant spoon.

Cook 15-20 minutes until chicken is cooked and peppers are softened.

Serve over cooked rice. Yum yum!
