I crushed pineapple leftover from another recipe. Since I had 2 lbs of chicken thighs, I cut everything else back. However, I further reduced the liquids from what would have been 1 1/2 cups to 1 of only soy sauce and chicken stock combined. I left out the sugar and used fresh garlic and ginger. I reduced cooking time to 15 minutes because I was short of time and it seemed that would be long enough to assure the chicken would be done. I ended up with tons of sauce which 2 tbls of cornstarch barely thickened, and if I'd added the sugar, the sauce would have been way too sweet. The thighs were also a little dry. I like the idea of this recipe--quick and easy--so will likely try it again further reducing the starting liquids, increasing the garlic and ginger and cutting a few more minutes off the cooking time.
