    Ingredients

    • Low calorie cooking spray
    • 800g skinless and boneless chicken thighs, sliced thinly
    • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
    • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced, plus extra to garnish
    • 1 green pepper and 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
    • 200g fresh pineapple, cut into bite-sized pieces
    • Salt
    • For the sauce
    • 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
    • 6 tbsp light soy sauce
    • 4 tbsp tomato purée
    • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
    • 6 tbsp unsweetened orange juice
    • 100ml chicken stock
    • 1-2 tsp sweetener
    • 1 level tbsp cornflour

    Method

    • Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl until the cornflour is thoroughly blended. Set aside.

    • Spray a wok or deep frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. When it is very hot, add the chicken and stir-fry for 6-7 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

    • Add the garlic, spring onions and peppers and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

    • Pour the sauce into the pan and stir continuously for 1 minute until it thickens. The chicken and vegetables should be well coated with the sauce.

    • Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the pineapple, season with salt and garnish with spring onions. Serve with lots of noodles.
