Ginger Pear Chicken

Two non-vegan dinner posts in a row.  Sorry friends!  Still gluten free though and still cooking dinner for the meat eaters at my house.

1 lb chicken breasts
2 tablespoons Peanut oil
Garlic powder
Ground ginger
3 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Amino's plus a little more for the pears
1/2 cup water
1 can sliced pears, reserving 1/4 cup of the can liquid
1/4 cup cold water mixed with one tablespoon potato or tapioca starch
A little sugar for the pears

Cut your chicken into bite sized pieces.  Brown in peanut oil in a skillet with a lid.  Add 1/2 cup water, 3 tablespoons Bragg's, the 1/4 cup pear juice, and the spices.  Reduce heat to low.

Cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through and tender (at least 30 minutes.  The longer you simmer, the more tender the chicken.). 

Add the 1/4 cup water, starch combo.  Increase heat to high and cook until bubbly and slightly thickened.

Completely drain the pears.  Arrange them on a baking sheet.  Sprinkle with more Bragg's and a little sugar.  Broil until carmelized.  Keep a close watch on them so they don't burn.

Serve chicken over rice and add the carmelized pears to the top.  Pretty.  Yummy.  Pretty yummy.
