      Place the chicken broth, soy sauce, ketchup, rice vinegar, cornstarch, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.

    • 2

      Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the canola oil and the chicken. Cook the chicken, turning the pieces once or twice, until they are browned on the outside, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.

    • 3

      Add the remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil to the skillet along with the bell peppers, onion, carrots, and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until the peppers and onions start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.

    • 4

      Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet, and reduce the heat to low. Stir the chicken broth mixture and add it to the skillet. Cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes or until a thick sauce forms and the chicken is cooked through. Top with the pineapple or stir the pineapple in. Sprinkle with the scallions and serve immediately with the rice.
