  • Season the chicken with the black pepper, white pepper and salt. Marinate at least 3 hours or at best overnight.
  • Place a pot over medium heat and add the pineapple chunks, ketchup, pepper flakes and water. Bring to a boil (about 10 to 12 minutes) and then add the cornstarch mixture to thicken the sauce. Set aside.
