I love shopping weekly sales and the past few weeks, pineapples have been on sale. I don’t know about you guys, but I have limited use of pineapple.
- Peel and eat pineapple.
End of list.
Unfortunately, that gets old really fast so I’ve started to embrace cooking with it, especially when it’s been sitting in my fridge untouched. I needed something fast that wasn’t a stew (I was craving Chinese take out) and the internet didn’t disappoint. Enter the Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry! It did not take long to put this together and I am thrilled since everyone can use a fast meal during the week.
Jimmy (my adorable black lab) approved whole heartedly.
I made some tweaks to the recipe:
- Added more vegetables, such as carrots, broccoli, and onion.
- Used chicken thigh since that’s what I had cut up in the freezer. Convenience!
- I think you could get away with a little less sauce. It was quite flavorful and I kind of needed more rice.
Speaking of sauce, as a Filipino we ALWAYS have the Thai Sweet Chili Sauce handy for a lumpia (Filipino version of an egg roll) dip. I had no idea it had so much potential to be so much more!
