Feeds 4- 5
Prep and Cook time: 20 mins
Step One: In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and cook chicken until completely done.
Step Two: In a separate pan, saute bell peppers, onion, and jalapenos with a touch of coconut/olive oil until veggies are tender.
Step Three: In a separate bowl mix the vinegar, arrowroot powder, pineapple juice and honey.
Step Four: Combine the chicken, pineapple and bell peppers into the same pan. Add the chicken stock and let boil.
Step Five: Stir in the vinegar, arrowroot mixture and cook for approx. 3 minutes. Be careful not to cook for too long. When arrowroot is overcooked it gets too runny and the texture of the dish will not turn out correctly. It should be a thicker, gel-like texture.
Step Six: Add some red pepper flakes over top if you'd like and serve hot. Tastes best when freshly made!
