Bring to a boil, stirring. Add the chicken broth and return to a boil. Cut the carrot into 2-inch lengths. Cut the pieces into thin slices. Cut the scallion into thin slices. Add the carrot, scallion, green pepper and pineapple chunks to the sauce. Bring to a boil and set aside. Heat the oil for deep frying. Dip the chicken pieces into the water chestnut powder and shake off any excess.
