Loved this combination of chicken, green peppers and pineapple. I almost hesitated when it came to the 3/4 cup cider vinegar but found the addition of the pineapple and sugar worked well and made for great tasting Pineapple Chicken which I am sure will become a favorite at our house too. Thank you mabers!
