Thai Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry



A Thai inspired stir fry dish with a wonderful savory, sweet and spicy flavor combination made with colorful bell peppers, fresh pineapple and chicken.

A few months ago I was invited to a Thai Kitchen event where their chef demonstrated a few recipes using their new Thai Kitchen sauces and this was one of the dishes they made. They kindly shared the recipe with me which I slightly modified to give it more kick. If you don't like your food too spicy you can leave out the chili pepper. Serve this over jasmine rice for a complete meal, also great with shrimp!

    Think I'll try to make this soon!
    Thanks :D

  4. This look amazing! I love Thai food, and I love healthy versions of it! I just found your site the other day, and I am a huge fan already!

  5. When you say 1.25 cups is 186 calories, does that mean rice AND chicken mixture? This looks wonderful, by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Have you ever used canned pineapple for this?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love adding pineapple to stir frys! This sounds awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  8. You could use soy sauce in place of the fish sauce. The rice would be extra, I served this over 1/2 cup of rice.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I didn't use canned pineapple, but I'm sure it would be fine. Use pineapple in juice, not syrup.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yum, yum, yum! I totally want to come over and eat with you the next time you make this! :)

  11. I love dishes with pineapple. especially in the summer! Combine that with the fact that I love stir fries.. I think I found myself a new meal!

  12. Mmmmm, we LOVE Thai food. Will def try this after vacation. Thanks!!!

  13. another new reader to your site and now i am obsessed -- i think i already clicked back through all the way to the beginning!
    would oyster sauce be a replacement for fish sauce? also, could any sweet-n-sour or similar type sauce be a suitable replacement for the Thai Kitchen brand?

    ReplyDelete
  14. This looks amazing! I had planned to make your bruschetta chicken tomorrow but now I can't decide! Your recipes save me :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Do you think you could substitute sweet chilli sauce if you don't have Thai Kitchen Pineapple Chilli Sauce?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Anytime Danica!

    Sweet chili sauce may work but the taste will be altered a bit. Same with any sweet and sour sauce.. without tasting it I can't be sure how it is. If you make this with changes, let us all know!

    1. I made this with shrimp, substituted canned pineapple in juice and sweet chili sauce (because I couldn't find the kind you listed), and it came out delicious! Would absolutely make it again!

    2. I could not the find the chili dipping sauce she metioned either! so I took what i read from your comment about the sweet chili sauce and now I am super excited to make it!!! <3

  17. Eva, don't use Oyster sauce, it's not the same. Soy sauce would probably be the closest thing but if you like Thai food, I suggest you buy Thai fish sauce, I use it a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow that looks SO good! Can't wait to taste it :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. How many OZ's of chicken breast did you use???

    ReplyDelete
  20. Scratch that last comment...apparently I can't read :)

  21. Looks and sounds DElicious!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Gina, this looks so good! The calories are SO low ~ that's perfect! I think I may add in a little red pepper flakes for some heat...this is making me so hungry!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Red pepper flakes or shriracha would even work!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I cant find the pinespple chilli sauce anywhere. Where w ok uld you suggest I look?

    ReplyDelete
  25. pineapple chili sauce is available on the thai kitchen website

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just wanted to tell you that for the last two weeks I've cooked dinner using recipes from your website and every single one has been amazing!!! I am so glad I found your website

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sara, look in the Asian section where they sell Thai ingredients. I know it's available everywhere, they told me it's even sold in Target and Walmart.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My grocery store didn't have the Pineapple Chili Sauce so I bought an Orange Chili Sauce and it was yummy. I think I might try this with pork at some point too.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This looks AMAZING! I will def. have to try this and the mountain of other recipes you have! It is very hard to cook good healthy food sometimes your recipes are awesome and easy! Cannot WAIT to try some of these!

    We just started following your blog! We Saw you on Food Gawker! Look forward to more recipes to come!

  30. I think I've made something very similar from Cook's Illustrated The Best Light Recipe and it was fantastic. I really love the sweet and spicy combo... and yes, heavy on the spicy ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was always under the impression that sweet and sour dishes had to be loaded with sugar, but it seems like this one isn't at all. It looks amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'll look at Target, but it hasn't been well stocked. I might have to look at the new asian grocery that opened up not too far away. I miss the bay area in cali, I could find everything there.

    ReplyDelete
  33. this looks amazing! Thanks so much for posting your recipes Gina! I've made a whole bunch, and have gone back and adapted a few w/additions/subtractions to make it sort of something "new" again. These recipes have really helped me stay on plan.. thank you!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Mmmm, this is going to be yummy with fresh DR pineapple! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Gina, you are so awesome!! I can't tell you how many of your recipes I have made. Tonite I'm trying the Manicotti for the first time! I made the stirfry last night and it was so yummy :) I couldn't find the pineapple sauce, so I used the thai sweet red chili sauce and added about a 1/2 tbl. of shriracha to the chili sauce, oh yes, it was so good!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great recipe, yet again, Gina! I couldn't find the sauce, but I did find a pineapple cooking sauce in the Asian food section, so I used that and added some chili pepper paste. I also used canned pineapple chunks with the juice drained. It was delicious, and my hubby loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My family and I have been trying to eat more natural/organic. Do you know if the Thai sauces are pretty natural and if not would you suggest any alternatives? :) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Is this a recipe I can sub shrimp for the chicken? I have a strong dislike for chicken....lol. Thank you in Advance for the help.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Just made this for lunch and both Lar and I loved it.

    I couldn't find the Thai Kitchen Pineapple & Chili dipping sauce in the store even though they had other Thai Kitchen items. I got another Sweet Chili dipping sauce.

    I also added chopped onion as I love it in all savory dishes.

    This will be a regular menu item for us.

  40. I also could not find the Thai Chili Pineapple Sauce. I think I might use some Trader Joe's Island Soyaki and some sweet chili sauce to achieve the right flavor. I've checked our Shoprite and Target, neither carry the sauce. (And I live right across the river from Manhattan, in Hoboken!) Very disappointing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I left out the chili pepper and subbed 1/4c Thai Kitchen Sweet Red Chili and 1/4c TyLing Naturals Sweet & Sour sauce instead of the Pineapple & Chili sauce since I didn't have that on hand. We loved it! It came out on the sweeter side - which I loved - but my husband probably would have appreciated it with more of a kick, so next time I'll probably add sriracha sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Loved this!!! We subbed sweet and sour + sriracha for the dipping sauce (couldn't find it at Target). It was delicious!

    We also really loved the Asian Turkey Meatballs, which we served the other night with Asian Winter Slaw: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Asian-Winter-Slaw-363692

    ReplyDelete
  43. I cooked this last night. I also couldn't find the pineapple sauce, so I bought the Thai Kitchen Spicy Thai Mango sauce, and it was really delicious. I added 1/2 of cooked rice to it, and it was one of my favorite "diet" dinners ever. FYI, I ate two servings of it, for about 600 calories for dinner. Which is about perfect for my 1900/day goal.

    My only complaint is that it's just really high in sodium. I know that this is a constant issue for asian foods. But I wondered if maybe there's a way to exclude the fish sauce and replace it with something with low or no sodium. I really think I could eat this meal once a twice a month if the sodium were a bit more manageable.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Just had this for dinner - yummmm. Sub sauce for 1/4 hot chili and 1/4 sweet chili sauce. Would add onion next time. Had it with spaghetti squash to lower the carbs. You are saving me with all these healthy dishes. Thanks once again Gina.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Whoops! I accidentally omitted the fish sauce, but this was very good. Another keeper.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Gina, I am so excited to make this tonight! Just wanted to let you know, I plugged this into my recipe builder online. Using Thai sweet chili sauce (for some reason even in Singapore I can't seem to find Pineapple and Chili Sauce), the Points+ comes to 7 per serving, rather than 5. Perhaps this sauce is the cause?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Gina....OH you've done it again!! I couldn't find the pineapple and chili dipping sauce, so I improvised with Sweet Chili Sauce and it came out LOVELY!!! A little spicy...but just the right amount!! Keep them coming...you are my favorite!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I made this tonight and it was delicious. I went to three stores before finding the Pineapple dipping sauce. Thank you so much! Becky

    ReplyDelete
  49. I made this tonight with the sweet chili sauce and tofu instead of chicken. So yummmy!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm sorry you are all having a hard time finding the sauce!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I tried four stores here (Northern Virginia) and could find lots of Thai Kitchen but not that sauce. I Googled for pineapple chili sauce and found a couple of recipes, so I think I'll try to make something myself.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I made this and couldn't find the sauce either : ( Thai Kitchen products are hit and miss in Spokane. They sell the brand at every store but not the particular item. I am going to keep looking for it. I subbed w/ another stir-fry sauce and was not that impressed. I do love Thai food so I think this Pineapple sauce must be some kind of magic that hopefully I can find. It would probably even be good with red curry paste. So many options...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Couldnt find the sauce, so I did a sweet chili sauce and used soy instead of fish sauce. It was awesome, loved it! I served with brown rice. I added water chestnuts too. Another great meal, Ive not been let down once (ive made tons of stuff from here) so far!! Did the blt lettuce wraps last week for lunch, loved 'em!

    My husband and I just prepared this tonight. One word...DELICIOUS! It is now going to be a part of our regular menu! This is the 2nd recipe from Gina I have tried, the first were the Pina Colada Cupcakes which were HEAVENLY, now I just need to find the time to scour the blog for more goodies!!! Thanks Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Glad you all liked it, I would think sweet chili sauce would be the best option if you can't find the sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Food lion carries the pineapple and chilli sauce! Just found it today! Can't wait to cook this tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Two words......Freakin yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I used sweet chili sauce and it tasted amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  59. We had this for dinner tonight and thought it was terrific! My husband said he didn't think much of it when I first told him what we were having for dinner, but once he tried it, he kept raving about how great it was. I accidentally forgot the cornstarch coating on the chicken- not sure how I did that! But it was still delicious. I also couldn't find the pineapple chili sauce, so I used half Thai sweet chili sauce and half pineapple sweet and sour sauce, and added in some sriracha. Can't wait for the leftovers tonight!

  60. Hi Gina,
    I'm glad I found your site again after losing my bookmarks! I hope you remember me (my previous blog: Thismakesmyday), now I use this site: niceartlife.
    I was browsing through old emails and fortunately found your site again!
    I enjoy your recipes and this Thai Chicken stir is so great!
    Wish you a great new week and happy cooking!

  61. I made this tonight. Delicious! I couldn't find the Pineapple sauce here in Canada but I did get the Thai Kitchen Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce and it worked perfectly! I also added some water chestnuts and about a 1/3 cup of onion. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I made this the other night and it was completely fabulous!! My husband said it was one of his all time favorite meals I've ever made!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love this! Like a lot of other people, I couldn't find the Thai Kitchen Chili and Pineapple sauce anywhere in my area, so I improvised a bit. I used my stick blender to blend some pineapple with a bit of bottled sweet and sour sauce and a bit of the Thai Kitchen sweet chili dipping sauce. I don't know if it tastes like yours, but it was delicious. I'll keep looking for that Chili and Pineapple sauce, though, because it sounds really good.

  65. Fish sauce is considered the "secret sauce" of thai food!

  67. Gina I was able to find this sauce no problem in my grocery store and I am SO excited to make this tonight. It was exactly what I was looking for. I have been a HUGE follower for the past 6 months and I have to say you and your recipes are amazing. I look forward to new ones every day and thank you for doing this!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I made this the other night. Turned out very good. I had trouble finding the sauce too. Out of all places I found it at food lion

    ReplyDelete
  69. This was amazing!!! I found the sauce at Sunflower Farmer's Market here in Dallas.

    ReplyDelete
  70. You are my hero. I've used lots of your recipes and have yet to find one I didn't like. I just made this one and I am debating using some of my weekday points so I can have more, even though I'm full.

    On the downside my husband now thinks I can cook because I've been using your recipes so he expects me to cook all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  71. That is funny! Well at least you both know you are eating good!

    ReplyDelete
  72. i couldn't find the Thai Kitchen pineapple sauce but used a Mango/chili dipping sauce and it's wonderful. This is my new favorite recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Gina, I have made this twice. It tastes and looks delicious. Thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Glad I signed on to look at comments, my grocery store didn't have the dipping sauce either, I am going to try a couple of the stores that cater to food that is more of import, but now at least I have good alternatives if I can't find it. Thanks for your help all!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I made this last night with brown rice and it was amazing. I also couldn't find the pineapple chili sauce so I just used extra pineapple and the leftover sweet chili sauce from your bang bang shrimp recipe (also an amazing meal!)
    My husband lived it and went back for seconds. Sweet and spicy, a real crowd pleaser!

    A skinny egg roll recipe would be perfect for this dish.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Made this for my family the other night....they LOVED it. I had the leftovers for lunch today. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I JUST made this (eating as i type) and i used a generic brand sweet and sour sauce instead of the thai kitchen sauce, as i i could not find it... i added a few dashes of sriracha and reduced sodium soy sauce, and its AMAZING :) thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Can anyone tell me the calories on the Pineapple chilli sauce? I can't find it and had to use something a little different. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I was a little nervous about making it because of the multi-steps, but this ended up being a new favorite recipe! I'm going to try this with shrimp soon! Thanks Gina!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I have made this twice. The first time I could not find the Pineapple sauce, so I used the sweet chili sauce. It was okay, my hubby liked it, but it was way too sweet for me. When I made it with the pineapple sauce that I ended up finding, it was sssoooo good. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Had this for dinner tonight and loved it! We used sweet chili sauce as we could not get a pineapple one but it was still lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Made this last night (served over brown rice) and it was awesome! We didn't have # 1/2 cup Thai Kitchen Pineapple & Chili dipping sauce, so I threw in some soy sauce and it was delicious. I will DEF. be making (and recommending) this recipe again!

    ReplyDelete
  83. SO good. I usually either buy the frozen orange chicken type chinese food from costco or use a packet to try to make it. This is so much better! I also couldn't find the Thai Chicken sauce so I substituted sweet chili sauce mixed with pineapple juice.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I made this last night and it was a HUGE hit. I couldn't find the Thai Kitchen sauce, so I used a sweet thai chili sauce instead. Thanks, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I was craving this all day and thought i had everything i needed to make it when i got home.. but oops.. no green, red, yellow peppers... BUT i did have a habanero (which i always put in here).. so instead i tried it with some brussel sprouts and peas, and it was just as yummy! This is one of my favorites. Thanks so much for a healthy and delicious recipe! The scale thanks you too!

    ReplyDelete
  86. this looks soo good! does the fish sauce taste like fish ? i am asking this because i hate fish.

  87. I just love happy accidents!!

    no this does not taste like fish.

    I tried this for dinner tonight and it was A.MAZE.ING!!! My local grocery store didn't have the Thai Kitchen Pineapple and Chili sauce. But I did get a sweet and sour sauce that was pineapple and chili based (two top ingredients). I imagine it was just as good. Instead of the chili pepper i used some crushed red pepper flakes. Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe. I served mine over brown rice!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I've made this twice so far and absolutely love it! I add a habanero since I love spice. The first time I couldn't find the Pineapple & Chili sauce, so I used a combination of duck sauce and sweet chili sauce. Then I found the Pineapple & Chili sauce in a newly opened grocery store and made it that way the second time. Both were delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Gina, your recipes are amazing! I have been following your site and using your recipes for over a year now and I love all the recipes I've made! Even more importantly my husband loves the recipes too :) Thanks for all your hard work. Tonight I'm entertaining my brother and his girlfriend and will be making some of your Thai recipes. I'm off to buy some fish sauce to use in the recipes - you've finally convinced me to take the plunge!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Can't wait to make this. Sounds delicious with shrimp. How would that change the points? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  92. Made this and it was awesome! I went to 4 different stores, and a "global foods", and could not find the sauce! I just did 1/3 cup of sweet chili sauce, and filled it up with pineapple juice to 1/2 cup. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Me and my family loved it, great recipe indeed. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Before I go looking for the sauce, I have a stupid question. Is the sauce spicy? I would be feeding this to a 1 and 2 year old and not sure how they would react to a spicy dish. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  95. Looks like another great recipe. I've been following your recipes for 4 ask now & the weight is coming off & it all taste really good. Thank you so much!

  98. This was great! Prepped the night before it's a fast weeknight meal. For those who don't want to use or can't use fish sauce a great alternative is 2 parts soy sauce and 1 part lime juice.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Where do you buy the pineapple dipping sauce? I went to WinCo and SaveMart and I couldn't find the sauce =(

    ReplyDelete
  100. Albertsons has both fish sauce and the pineapple sauce, plus a bunch of other Thai Kitchen sauces, if people are still looking... I think it's called Kroger in some states.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I made this for my husband and I a week ago. This was absolutely spectacular! This will be put into our regular rotation of meals. My husband isn't really a "fruit in his meal" kind of guy, but he can't stop talking about it. I have passed your website with this recipe onto 4 other friends of mine so far. Thanks for the great recipes!

  102. Just getting ready to sit down and enjoy this meal now! And I've snuck a small bite and cannot WAIT! Thanks for posting this and running this site! I'm new to WW and your site made my grocery planning a bit easier than it would've been w/o it!

  103. Made this for dinner last night and it was delish!! Thank you so much for these yummy and healthy recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  104. This is the best recipe I have tried yet from your site! (Well, minus the oatmeal chip cookies, but I am trying not to eat sweets.) Thank you thank you for sharing. Even my 5 & 8 year old ate it -- including the vegetables! Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Just made this tonight! Awesome! Thanks for recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  106. This has become a FAVE in my house. I cannot find the Thai Kitchen Pineapple Chili sauce but I mix fresh pineapple juice, thai sweet chili sauce, sweet and sour sauce and Sriracha (thai hot sauce) together as a substitute and darn ... it is DELISH (and low in points too)!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I made this tonight and my husband's comment was, "this is probably the best thing you ever cooked, restaurant quality". Substituted Sweet Red Chili sauce for the Pineapple & Chili sauce, and used soy sauce instead of fish sauce - it was so delicious and easy to make! My kids loved it too.

    ReplyDelete
  108. This has become my most favorite dish EVER!!! Very very delicious! I am such a fan of your site! Thank you for making healthy taste really really delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Gina, your site is wonderful and I have made LOTS of your recipes but this one was AWWWWWWSOME! I did have a hard time finding the Pineapple Chili sauce. Had to go to 3 grocery stores and finally found it at Albertsons. It was well worth the search though. I did use the hot pepper in it and loved the sweet/hot flavor in it. Thank you for all your recipes that you share with us. Keep up the great work. Now I need to go and find another recipe to try. LOL

  110. Just made this delicious dish and was received with lots of hmmms and ahhhhs, thank you! :-)

  111. Is there a replacement for Thai Kitchen Pineapple & Chili dipping sauce? I live in Australia and won't be able to get it. This dish looks absolutely AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  112. This is my absoloute favorite...I couldn't find the pineapple & Chili dipping sauce so I used pineapple juice and sweet chili sauce...tasted wonderful. The taste on this site is out of this world. I very rarely cook from anything other than this site!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I made this for dinner last night. I used a habanero and the heat level was perfectly balanced against the sweet. I used quinoa for my grain and that gave it a nutty balance that was well suited to my taste.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I absolutely LOVED this dish. It was so simple and yummy. I used Newman's Own Pineapple Salsa in place of the Thai Kitchen Pineapple Chili Sauce and it worked out wonderfully. I referred to this recipe on my casual blog and I linked/gave credit to you. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Made this for dinner this evening after the family absolutely loving the broiled tilapia w/thai curry sauce last night. The only words I have is OMG!!!

  116. I love and use your recipes all the time. I made this tonight and it was delicious. However like most of your recipes I'm finding the calories are wayy off. Myfitnesspal.com has this at 301 per serving. Still not bad at all.

    ReplyDelete
  117. I was plugging this recipe in to calorie count and my fitness pal (since I use both), and I too found that the calories were significantly off. I use 3 bell peppers so when I measured in cups, I was able to bring it up to 5.5 1 1/4 cup servings but the calories are still sitting at 271. Still pretty good but I hope maybe the calories could be updated in recipes!

    1. Thanks for noticing, I'll check it, it may have been a typo. I try to double check every recipe but mistakes happen sometimes.

  118. I just checked the calories and I am not getting such high numbers as you. Are you using raw or cooked chicken in my fitness pal, as that will alter the calories. Send me an email so we can figure this out.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I have tried a few recipes and they have ALL came out really good! This one too was very good!! I used frozen pineapple cuz I can't seem to keep fresh fruits and vegetables or they go bad too quickly. My family loved it! My kids have not rejected a recipe yet!! I am not a very good cook and I don't like to cook, but when I make one of your recipes, I actually get excited and enjoy cooking it. Thank you for the pictures. I also appreciate the comments, cuz I learn alot from them.

    ReplyDelete
  120. This is SO good. I used some kind of frozen chile cubes in the freezer section and I put WAY too many in but I like the spice so it was ok. The color and flavor were amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  121. This was excellent and easy! I left out the chili because I was also serving this to a 4 and 6 year old (they loved it), but I don't think it significantly impacted the overall flavor of the dish. I also used sweet chili dipping sauce because I had it on hand and after searching high and low I still couldn't find the the Thai Kitchen pineapple chili sauce. I'm sure if I had made this according to Gina's exact directions it would have been even better!

  122. This is an awesome recipe. Tastes amazing, but is not really a healthy alternative. The Thai Kitchen sauce (which calls for a 1/2 cup!) is loaded with sugar. Try using unsweetened pineapple juice and soy sauce instead. Keep the ginger, the garlic and the red chile pepper, and it will still be awesome.

  124. I like to cook the chicken first so I don't have to dirty two pans and lose all the sauce from emptying it into another dish.

  129. I will make this again but I will omit the fish sauce next time. It was a bit too salty for my taste.

  130. Did not have enough bell pepper so added green onions. Use pineapple juice and Siracha sauce in place of dipping sauce. Add ginger and garlic to oil before cooking chicken. A touch of soy at end. Canned pineapple worked well, too. Hubby said it was good upon first taste. BTW found recipe after searching for "tasty chicken pineapple recipe". Will definitely make again.

  131. This is delicious! However, I'm getting this to be 8 points+ per serving. The chicken is showing as 12 for one lb. and the sauce at 18 for a 1/2 cup. Am I doing something wrong? I will definitely make this again - just want to make sure I'm counting it correctly!

  132. Has anyone tried substituting rice flour for the cornstarch for gluten free?

  133. DELICIOUS!! I made this dish last night and even my harshest critic (7 yr old) LOVED IT!! @Elizabeth (above), my little one is Celiac and cornstarch IS gluten free so you will be safe. Also, I didn't have the pineapple-chili sauce so I just substituted Thai Kitchen Sweet Red Chili Sauce. It was amazing!

  134. Made this tonight and it was really good. Wegmans didnt have thai kitchen pineapple chilie dipping sauce but wegmans brand had sweet chilie sauce which was just as good. I also added mushrooms Everything else i kept the same. Will def make again. Served over white rice.
