    I’ve made this recipe for many years without coating chicken and frying. I heat a tablespoon of oil, add chicken cut into chunks, drizzling with soy sauce as it cooks in a wok or large pan. I very lightly sauté peppers and onions (want to keep slightly crisp) in pan when chicken is almost finished cooking. I then make the sauce mixture as in this recipe using pineapple juice, add pineapple to warm, thicken and serve over rice. Serve with additional soy sauce at table optional.

    Catsup is nasty in sweet and sour. Add a squeeze of tomato paste if you must, but I don't need hamburger tasting chicken!

    I did just a tablespoon of catsup and 2 tablespoons of sugar because it looked really sweet to me. Also, the recipe didn't say anything about adding the pineapple chunks, so I did that when I added the chicken and peppers to the sauce.
