METHOD:

  1. In a large bowl, add pineapple juice, dark soy sauce, rice vinegar, and light brown sugar; whisk until the sugar dissolves, then add Thai chilis, ginger, and your chicken; mix to combine, cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge overnight.

  2. Strain your chicken through a large mesh strainer, and reserve the liquid. Heat a large wok over high heat, and add enough oil; once hot, add half of your marinated chicken and sear, tossing occasionally until the chicken gets some color and cooked through. Remove and repeat with the rest.

  3. Add half of the marinade, bring it to a boil, and reduce for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Separately whisk together cornstarch and water; whisk until homogenous, and add half of your slurry to the sauce to thicken. Add more if necessary.

  4. Once sauce reaches desired thickness, add in raw chopped garlic, and toss to evenly coat the chicken.

  5. Serve with rice and garnish with thinly chopped green onion.
