Pineapple Sweet and Sour Chicken...

I am not a sweet and sour fan, in fact I tend to never eat it if I can get away with it. My Mom brought this recipe to me, and I can not tell her no!! never!! cause well she is finally trying all these new things, I never would have thought she would bring them to me!! So I had to buck up and be willing to try it too! and what was my thought, oh hell yea it was grub!!! of course we said we will make it again, and its been like 3 mnths since we made it ( haha for updating my blog SUPER later) but we keep trying other new things instead haha.
2 cups Minute white Rice, Uncooked
1 can (20oz) pineapple chunks
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into chunks ( I HATE green bell peppers, I went with color! )
1 medium onion, cut into chunks
1/2 c mushrooms, sliced
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup sweet and sour sauce ( yea I know... didn't make my own.. but it was her recipe :P)
2 Tbsp less sodium soy sauce

Prepare rice according to package directions.
Drain pineapple, reserve 2 Tbsp of Juice.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add peppers, onions and mushrooms, cook until vegetables are tender crisp. remove vegetables from skillet, set aside.
Cook chicken in same skillet until chicken is browned and cooked through. Add vegetables back to skillet with sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce, pineapple chunks and reserved juice. Heat through. Serve with hot cooked rice.
Serves 6.

SO very good!
