Another of the UK's favourites. Here chicken is served with peppers, pineapple and water chestnuts in a lovely sweet and sour sauce. Serve with plain white rice or fried rice.

Easy and delicious. I included the pineapple and added some large chunks of white onion with the peppers. I served over white rice. Thanks for sharing!
