Ready in 30 minutes


  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 8 skinless and boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 435g can pineapple chunks in natural juice, drained, reserving 2 tbsp juice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 level tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • A handful of finely sliced spring onions, to garnish
  • Boiled dried rice, to serve


Place a non-stick wok or deep frying pan over a high heat and spray with low-calorie cooking spray. Add the chicken and cook for 3 minutes, stirring continuously. Transfer the chicken to a plate with a slotted spoon.

Add the onion, pepper and carrots to the wok and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return the chicken to the wok and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Meanwhile, make the sauce by mixing the reserved pineapple juice with the garlic, cornflour, tomato purée, red wine vinegar, soy sauce and 100ml of water. Stir the sauce into the chicken and vegetables, add the pineapple and cook over a low heat for 2 minutes or until thickened. Scatter over the spring onions and serve hot with the rice.
