    Melting Pot Chicken

    62 1/2 lbs. chicken pieces
    1/3 C. cornstarch
    2 tsp. paprika
    1/4 C. cooking oil
    1 (16 oz.) can pineapple chunks
    1 C. celery, cut into 1 inch pieces
    1 green bell pepper cut into 1/2 rings
    2 Tbsp. brown sugar
    2 Tbsp. soy sauce
    1/3 C. broken English Walnuts
    1/4 C. seedless grapes

    Methods/steps

    Place cornstarch and paprika in a plastic bag. Shake a few pieces of chicken at a time in bag with cornstarch and paprika. Save left over cornstarch for sauce mixture. Brown chicken slowly in a moderately hot skillet, turning as necessary. When lightly browned 15 to 20 minutes, reduce heat, cover tightly, and cook slowly until almost tender 10 to 20 minutes. Drain pineapple, saving liquid. Add pineapple, celery, and green pepper and add to pan, and place chicken pieces over the top of the vegetables. Cover and cook for five minutes. Combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with the remaining of the cornstarch mixture that was used to coat the chicken, and add brown sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, and 1/4 C. pineapple liquid. Pour over chicken. Cover and continue to cook for 10 minutes. Stir walnuts and raisins into mixture and serve with cooked rice.

    I'm going to hazard a guess that it is a typo. Given the amount of the other ingredients I'd think that they meant 2 and 1/2 pounds of chicken, total. If you cut that up into 62 pieces they would be pretty small bits!

    Yes you are probably right.
