    Add the cornstarch to a large ziplock bag.Add the chicken pieces to the large ziplock bag and shake until all the pieces are well coated.

    Dip the pieces into the egg, then into the flour before adding to the hot oil. Add chicken in batches so as not to have more than a single layer of it in the oil at a time.

    Cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes, until cooked through and crispy.
    Remove to a cookie sheet (no paper towels!) and continue cooking the remaining batches of chicken pieces.When done cooking remove all but a tablespoon of the oil.
    Add the bell peppers, onion and pineapple and cook for 1-2 minutes, until crisp-tender.Add the sauce back in and stir to coat the pieces and cook for 30 seconds to help the garlic warm through.
