Simple Pineapple Chicken

Chinese pineapple chicken is one of my all time favorite take outs. I used to go to Chinese restaurants to get it until I decided to make it at home, and it was so much better than the take out. In my humble opinion, it is a must try. Your family and friends will love it. 

I use boneless, skinless chicken breast as they are my favorite, but you can use the cut of chicken of your choice. I use a wok for frying but a frying pan will suffice. The temperature of the oil should be about 350 degrees F or 177 C. This recipe uses canned pineapple but fresh can be used as well. The veggies can be varied to some extent.
