Sweet and Sour Chicken

This is not really sweet and sour. It has the elements-- the chicken, the peppers, the pineapple-- but it's missing the sauce. It is still really good and good for you. So maybe it just needs a different name.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

1/3 cup soy sauce
2 T raw honey (or regular)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1/4 tsp crushed pepper flake
1&1/4 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
12 sprigs cilantro
1&1/2 cups cooked brown rice

In small bowl whisk together soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes. Place chicken in a large shallow dish. Pour mixture over chicken, toss. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes up to 8 hours.

Heat a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add chicken and marinade and saute' for 5 minutes or until vegetables are slightly tender. Add pineapple and cook 2 more minutes. Sprinkle with cilatro and serve over rice.
