    Tropical Chicken and Pasta
    4 to 6 servings

    3/4 cup soy sauce
    3 tablespoons dark sesame oil, divided
    3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
    1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot
    1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks in juice, drained with 1/3 cup juice reserved
    1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
    4 medium bell peppers (2 red and 2 yellow), cut into 1-inch chunks
    2 medium onions, cut into 1-inch chunks
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 pound linguine, cooked according to package directions
    1/4 cup toasted chopped macadamia nuts

    In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sesame oil, the brown sugar, gingerroot, and reserved pineapple juice; mix well. Add the chicken, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
    In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil over high heat. Add the bell peppers and onions, and cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    Add the chicken and marinade, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until no pink remains in the chicken. Remove 1/4 cup sauce to a small bowl; add the cornstarch, mix well then return the sauce to the skillet. Stir in the pineapple and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until heated through and the sauce is thickened.
    Toss with the cooked linguine, sprinkle with macadamia nuts, and serve.
