Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 can pineapple chunks
cup chopped onion
1 tbsp. Oil
1 cups water (I use the pineapple juice)
2 cups carrots, cut in thin julienne strips
3 chicken oxo cubes
2 cups cooked chicken or turkey
1 cup green pepper strips
2 tbsp. Cornstarch
tsp. Ginger
cup ketchup
2 tbsp. Vinegar
1 tbsp. Soy sauce

Directions:
Directions:
Grab the cooked chicken out of the freezer to thaw. If youre clever, its already in bite-sized chunks which break apart and thaw faster. Gently (!?!) fry the chopped onion in a large fry pan while you get the rice ready or started. When the onion is soft, add the pineapple juice/water, cubes, and carrots (and chicken if it needs thawing yet). When that mixture has cooked for a few minutes, add the cornstarch/ginger/ketchup/vinegar/soy sauce that has been mixed together and stir while this thickens in your pan. Add the pineapple and green pepper. When this looks so good you can hardly stop digging into it, its ready. You may have to add a little water to keep the sauce the right consistency. You can even turn this off for a while and let the flavours go through, just warming it when the rice, a salad if you like, the family and the candlelight are ready.

Preparation & cooking time: 30 minutes, less if youre a whirlwind .

When the kids are starting to gather around for supper and youre out of ideas and desperate, this meal will save the day. It looks like a million, satisfies everyone, and restores your self-respect.
