Spicy-Apple Chicken

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite-sized pieces)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove (minced)
1/4 tsp dried ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp ketchup
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp water

Place olive oil in a large skillet or grill pan.  Heat to medium-high heat.  Add chicken and cook over medium high heat until lightly browned.  Remove chicken from skillet.  Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well mixed and dissolved.  Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.  If you prefer a thicker sauce, combine 1 Tbsp water and 1 Tbsp cornstarch in a separate bowl and add a little at a time to reach desired consistency.

Serve over hot rice.
