  • Heat 2-3 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and garlic. Stir-fry until the chicken is cooked and no longer pink. Remove the chicken from the pan and cover to keep warm.
  • Add the remaining oil to the pan. Add the broccoli, bell pepper and onion. Stir-fry over medium-high heat until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the broccoli is bright green. Return the chicken to the pan. Add the pineapple chunks and sauce mixture. Bring to a slow boil and cook until everything is heated through and the sauce has thickened.
  • Serve over the cooked rice or mix in with the stir fry.
