Stove or oven method:

Combine 2 tsp cornstarch, 2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce, and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Add chicken; stir well to coat. Set aside.

Combine broth, remaining 2 tsp cornstarch, remaining 1 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce, brown sugar, and next 4 ingredients.

Heat 1/2 tsp canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced onion and next 3 ingredients to pan; saute 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer to a bowl.

Heat remaining 2 1/2 tsp canola oil in pan. Add chicken mixture to pan, and spread in an even layer; cook, without stirring, 1 minute. Saute an additional 3 minutes or until chicken is done.

Return vegetable mixture to pan. Add soy sauce mixture and pineapple, stirring well to combine. Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute or until thickened, stirring constantly.



This oriental favourite can be prepared for the whole family. Simply omit the chilli paste, cut a piece of chicken and a spoonful of vegetables into small pieces for your toddler. Serve on a small serving of rice.​​
