8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 4-5 chicken breasts(1 1/4 pounds) ( I would cut up each chicken breasts into 2-4 pieces)
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 T olive oil
1 T minced garlic
2 tsp sugar
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup snow peas
1 cup diced fresh or canned pineapple
1 cup long grain rice, cooked
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1. Combine the chicken, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, garlic, sugar, bay leaf, and pepper in a 3 quart saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring occasionally, over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer stirring occasionally for 12 minutes. With a slotted spoon transfer chicken to a platter, keep warm.

2. Discard bay leaf. Increase heat to high cook sauce until syrupy, about 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, place the snow peas in a microwave safe dish. Sprinkle with 1 T water, cover, and microwave on high for 50 seconds. Drain snow peas and toss with chicken on a serving platter.

4. Arrange the pineapple around chicken on platter; pour the sauce over. Stir the cilantro into the rice and serve on chicken.

Makes 4 servings.
