#563 "Chinese" Chicken & Pineapple

This is a recipe that we have been using for the last 40+ years.
It came from the Len Deighton's Action Cook Book.

Some cooked chicken
Small tin of Pineapple chunks
Any type of Onion roughly chopped
Finely cut or minced fresh Ginger, Garlic, Chilli

Sauce (in tablespoons):
2 heaped Dark Brown Sugar
2 Sarson's Malt Vinegar (or other)
1 Kikkoman Soya Sauce (or other)
Half tablespoon Maize Starch.
Liquid from the tin of Pineapple

Oil for frying, preferably Coconut Oil.

Fry onions till transparent, add Ginger, Garlic and Chilli and fry 2 minutes more.
Add sauce and cook on low heat, keep stirring until the starch is properly cooked and the sauce has become thick.

Add cooked Chicken bring up to temperature then add Pineapple.
If the sauce is too thick for your liking add some water or juice.

Can be served with noodles or rice.
Can be garnished with Coriander or Mint.
That's it.
