A flavorful sweet and sour pineapple barbecue sauce jazzes up this great tasting chicken. Serve the chicken with its sauce over rice or noodles.
The dish is a quick preparation and takes only about 15 minutes to cook. Have hot cooked rice ready, or make Asian style noodles.

- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Cut the chicken into strips or 2-inch chunks. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken, bell pepper, and onion. Cook, constantly stirring, until the chicken is browned.
