Friday Food: Pineapple Curry Chicken

Pineapple Curry Chicken

Jam-packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals, pineapples are low in fat and sodium with no cholesterol, and provide the enzyme bromelain, which aids muscle recovery.

Makes Three Servings
>> 20 oz. canned unsweetened pineapple chunks
>> 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
>> 1 Tbsp. curry powder
>> 8 oz. chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
>> 3 Tbsp. flour
>> 2 bell peppers, cut into strips

Start: Drain pineapple chunks and save 1⁄4 cup of the juice. Set pineapple chunks aside. Combine juice with cornstarch and curry powder in a small saucepan.

Cook: Bring curry mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 3-4 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Set aside. Dust chicken in flour, and coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add chicken to skillet and cook four minutes per side or until lightly browned.

Serve: Add sliced peppers and sauté for two minutes. Add pineapple chunks and curry mixture to skillet. Cook over medium heat until thoroughly heated.
