Dip the corn starch coated chicken chunk into the egg, then into the flour. Fry in the oil for 2 -3 minutes until cooked through and crispy. Remove to a plate and continue frying until all the chicken chunks are cooked.

Pour 1 tablespoon of the oil into a frying pan and cook the red pepper, onion and pineapple pieces for 2 minutes, until crisp-tender.

To make the sauce, whisk together ¼ cup of pineapple juice, the sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and garlic. Add the sauce to the pan and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the fried chicken pieces and stir until the sauce has thickened and is bubbling.
Remove from the heat and stir in the peas.
