Polynesian Chicken

This recipe was found from Natalie's Killer Quisine and this is her blog site (which is great btw)
Polynesian Chicken
yield: 4 servings

2 TBS Apple Cider Vinegar
2 TBS Soy Sauce
3 TBS Cornstarch
4 Chicken Breast, boneless and skinless
Salt, Pepper
2 TBS Olive Oil
1 Bell Pepper, thin slices
1 Onion, thin slices
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
1 can Sliced Peaches (I used Sugar free chunks)
Cooked Rice (I prepared Brown Rice)

1. Whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce and cornstarch. Open the peaches and drain the syrup into a separate container. Set aside.
2. Cut the chicken breast in large cubes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Add the 2 TBS olive oil to the pan and add chicken. Cook for at least 6 minutes until all sides of the chicken are browned and chicken is cooked all the way through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
4. Add the pepper and onion slices to the pan and turn heat to medium low. Cook at least 10 minutes, until vegetables are soft and aromatic. Remove vegetables from the pan.
5. Whisk together the soy sauce mixture with the reserved peach juice. The mixture will appear milky due to the cornstarch. Add to the pan and turn on low. Stir until transparent and thick.
6. Add the tomatoes and peaches to the sauce and leave on low heat for at least 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the tomatoes start to look a little wrinkled, add the chicken and vegetables to the pan and gently toss in the sauce. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
7. Serve over white or brown rice.
