Sweet and Sour Tropical Stir Fry Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Stephanie Z.

My mother brought a bunch of grapefruits last weekend, and, honestly, I'm not a big fan of grapefruit unless it's loaded with sugar. I scoured the internet and my cookbooks for ideas of how to incorporate grapefruit into a main dish and came up with this recipe. You can sub your favorite sweet and sour sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine jucies, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, ginger, and black pepper.
  2. Cook over medium heat. Add cornstarch; stir until sauce thickens. You may want to use more or less cornstarch to get the desired consistency. Set aside to let sauce cool.
  3. Remove all visible fat from chicken breasts, and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Once sauce is cool, add chicken, fruit, and green pepper. Place marinade and chicken in plastic storage bag or container; refrigerate at least an hour or overnight.
  5. Saute onion in olive oil over moderate heat for about 5 minutes. Add broccoli, water chestnuts and snow peas. Saute an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Add chicken and marinade. Cook about 15 minutes over moderate heat until chicken is no longer pink.
  7. Serve over 1/2 cup rice or couscous. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
