Directions
1.
Drain the pineapple, reserving the juice. Stir the cornstarch, sugar, ginger, soy, picante sauce and reserved pineapple juice in a small bowl until it's smooth. Set the mixture aside.
2.
Spray a 10-inch skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the peppers and stir-fry until they're tender-crisp. Set them aside.
3.
Remove the pan from the heat. Spray it with cooking spray and increase the heat to medium-high. Add the chicken in 2 batches and cook until it's well browned and cooked through, stirring often. Set the chicken aside.
4.
Stir the cornstarch mixture and add it to the skillet. Cook until the mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Stir the pineapple in the skillet. Return the chicken and the peppers to the skillet and heat through. Serve over the rice. Garnish with the parsley.
