2 Tbsp brown sugar replacement
1/2c Herb Ox chicken broth low sodium
2 Tbsp ketchup (I use the no-salt added kind)

Spray a pan with cooking spray and cook the pepper and ontion until crisp tender , remove and set aside

Add chicken to the pan (pre cut meat into strips or chunks) and cook through. Mix vinegar, broth, ketchup, sugar and cornstarch, then add to the meat in the pan and cook until thickened. You can always thin with water or broth but I found it to be JUST right. Put the veggies back in and add pineapple, cook about 2 minutes, serve.

No problem Angie. I know that when you start off, it is really hard to get a routine set up. I originally wrote the first one at the request of my little sister, who works at a hospital. She is very busy during the day, and has to really make an effort to have her snacks. She also really struggles with getting her water in, so that is why I scheduled the water as well. I will post another one tomorrow after I finish it.
