Ginger Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry


This is such a wonderful dinner. I make it extra saucey because for me that makes it extra delicious. My husband loves it as does my toddler (though he opts for the tender bits of chicken and ripe pineapple slices in sauce).

Ginger Pineapple Chicken Stir Fry

4 Servings

2 tablespoons fish sauce
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons minced ginger
2 tablespoons hoison
2 teaspoons sambal

½ teaspoon cornstarch

2 tablespoons canola/veg oil
1 ½ lb. chicken breast, cut into thin strips
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 green pepper, diced small
½ cup small diced sweet onion
1 can baby corn, drained
1 cup diced fresh pineapple
1 bunch scallions, cleaned and sliced into 2 inch pieces

Jasmine rice for serving

In a medium bowl combine ingredients of the sauce and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Set your sauce to the side of your large frying pan/wok.

Set your frying pan on high heat and add your oil. Wait until it is sizzling hot then add your chicken. Cook chicken about 2 minutes until it is mostly white and only a little pink remains. Add in your garlic, peppers and onion and then cook a minute more. Next stir in your sauce and add your baby corn and pineapple. Bring sauce to a simmering boil and then add in scallion. Cook in lightly bubbling sauce for 4-5 minutes until sauce thickens, onions and peppers soften and chicken is cooked fully.

Serve with jasmine rice.

    Thanks for the Dinspiration!

    For my vegetarian family, I substituted extra firm tofu for the chicken & sautéed it a little crispy first, and my 3 yr old’s current favorite vegetable (broccoli) and it was a hit. I think seitan would also be delicious in this dish. Who doesn’t need more pineapple in their world!
