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!
