Thai Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry

Years ago, I attended a Thai Kitchen event, where their chef demonstrated a few dishes using their new Thai Kitchen sauces. This Thai Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry was one of the recipes, which they kindly shared with me. I slightly modified it to give it more kick, but you can leave out the chili pepper if you don’t like your food too spicy. More Asian-inspired chicken dishes that are super quick and easy are General Tso’s Chicken and Asian Peanut Noodles with Chicken. I also like Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce and Honey Teriyaki Drumsticks.

How to Make Stir Fry

I love stir fry for quick weeknight dinners because they cook fast on pretty high heat. To make this dish even faster, prep all your ingredients ahead of time. Then when it’s time to cook, you can just throw in everything and have dinner ready in under 20 minutes.

  • Mix the chicken and fish sauce and then toss with corn starch.
  • Stir fry garlic and ginger for 30 seconds.
  • Next, cook the bell peppers, chili pepper, and pineapple for three to five minutes and add the sauce.
  • Take the veggies out of the skillet and cook the chicken. Then put the pepper mixture back in the skillet.

Variations and Tips:

  • Swap chicken for shrimp.
  • If pineapple is out of season, use canned pineapple.
  • Omit the chili pepper for a milder dish.
  • Add snap peas, broccoli, carrots, or onion for extra veggies.
  • I highly recommend using the fish sauce as it doesn’t taste fishy and adds a more complex flavor, but if you prefer not to, sub it with soy sauce.
  • Serve this pineapple chicken stir fry over jasmine rice for a complete meal.
  • Freeze the stir fry in food storage containers for up to three months. To reheat, thaw overnight and microwave for a couple of minutes.

  1. Love this recipe. We do a variation switching the chicken out with tofu. We prep the tofu with cornstarch and cook separately first with oil until it is crispy. Then add it at the end to prevent the tofu from getting soggy. Very good.

  2. Super easy. It was delicious. Left out the chilli pepper.

  3. Thanks Gina for another easy yummy recipe.
    It will definitely be a repeat recipe in my home.
    I love that your recipes are so easy to modify secondary to dietary requirements .
    I made this with G. Hughes sugar free sweet chili sauce instead of Thai sauce. It was excellent.
    I also cooked onions with the peppers and added a can of the water chestnuts at the end.
    My middle aged self learned how to ripen pineapple by turning them upside down in vase.

  4. Saw recipe and HAD to make it. Super simple and delicious. I made basmati rice to go with it. Highly recommend. 😋

  5. Delicious and so easy! The only change I made was to add some zucchini along with the peppers. I think this would be excellent with almost any veggie you have on hand, like broccoli, onion, carrot, spinach, etc. Thanks for a perfect weeknight meal!

  6. delicious and flavorful! i paired it with some rice. i couldn’t find a red chili pepper so i just omitted it.

  7. We love this dish. It’s a regular in our rotation for WW.

  8. I doubled this recipe for a family birthday dinner, and it got rave reviews. I made it just as described, other than using only 1 red chili pepper for the doubled dish. I used 2 yellow, 2 orange and 2 red peppers, and I’ll have to say that in combination with the pineapple, this made the dish very visually appealing. I served the stir fry over jasmine rice with a simple green salad on the side. Delicious and easy!

  9. Easy to make.. Light and yummy

  10. Me and my cousins just made this and it was so beautiful!!! 

  11. Love this recipe!  Didn’t have a red Chili pepper so used Chile paste.  Delicious!

  12. Hi there,
    What would the freezing instructions be for this recipe? Thanks

  13. Super delicious. I added onion and cashews. 

  14. I am new to this website but already LOVE it! I am not new to weight watchers but am to new program. The points on this recipe confuse me a little as I thought chicken breast was zero points for blue and purple. Could someone clarify for me?

  15. Really good and perfectly spicy! Highly recommend.

  16. Do you think this would freeze well?

  17. So delicious and easy to make!!!! One skillet made for very easy cleanup. Perfect weeknight meal. Whole family loved it and there was no leftovers😪. The only thing I added was a handful or so of peanut halves when I cooked up the pineapple and bell peppers.

  18. Super easy to make!! Absolutely delicious 😋 

  19. we loved the flavors of this dish! Per other reviews I added broccoli and carrots.

  20. What a fantastic Dish…Straight from a restaurant it tasted and smelt…Thankyou so much for all your amazing skinnytaste dishes from downtown Australia Perth they never faiil..I am trying to order your Book One and Done that I have heard so much about…..Thanks for sharing Gina Im only too happy to buy!!

  21. I made this for dinner tonight….it is Amazing! My husband went back for seconds and this type of dish is totally outside of his comfort zone. Make this one, you will not be disappointed!

  22. I made this last night and it was AMAZING!! I swapped Mango for the pineapple and added some sweet onion.  Thank you Gina 🙂

  23. Excellent and easy!!! Oh, and of course delicious!!!! 👍👍👍👍👍 I didn’t add the spicy pepper. It was perfect as us!

  24. My store was out of fresh ginger. Do you suggest ground ginger, ginger in the jar, or neither?  Also, do you know if the amount I need to use should change and how much?   Thank you so much. 

  25. Wondering where you get the smart points from? I put the nutritionall information into my calculator and it says 8 points per serving. 

    • Hi Andrea! The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  26. what brand of thai chili sauce?

    • Thai sweet chili sauce is in a large bottle in the asian section of pretty much any grocery store….and sooooo yummy!

  27. Fast, easy and delicious!

  28. Is there a recommended substitute for the fish sauce? I don’t think that will go over well with my family. Thanks!

    • Lauren, I dont eat any fish at all. I still use the fish sauce. I know its crazy, but you really dont detect any fish in the recipe at all. I wouldnt skip it, just dont let them see you use it and for sure, dont smell it! 🙂

  29. I love this recipe! Do you think it could be made in an instant pot?

  30. I cook from skinnytaste most nights, and this is one of my favorites because it’s so easy and SO good. I use canned pineapple when I’m in a hurry, and it’s still really good. Thank you so much for your recipes, Gina! 

  31. Do you think this will taste equally as good with shrimp instead of chicken?

  32. I am allergic to seafood. If I omit the fish sauce will it make a big difference in the overall flavor?

  33. Gina! Do you think this could be done in The instant pot? ITs one of my fave old faithfuls of your recipes and I wonder if ITV would cross  over well to the IP – except for the texture of the chicken!

  34. Made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit. Loved all the flavors and I will be making this again. Thank you Gina for another great recipe!

  35. Added red onions and extra chicken (for 0 added points). Was absolutely delicious!

  36. I skipped the chili pepper and it was plenty hot! When you remove the veggies from the pan, be sure to wipe out the pan with a paper towel. The sweet sauce burned like crazy in my pan and caused my chicken to become black before it was cooked. If you don’t have the fish sauce, I think you can skip it and just use water. My last note is that I wish this had some red onion and maybe another veggie in it. Don’t be afraid to add another veggie – it will work!

  37. This is now 3 freestyle points,… yaaaay

  38. The points are not adding up. When i put in all the ingredients in Weight Watchers to create a recipe, I get 3 points. When I put in the nutrition info from above in it is showing me 8 points. Gina, you are showing 7 points. Any insight?

  39. Hi Gina,

    It says in one place that this is 7 SP and then in another place it on the page it says it is 4 SP. If you have time could you please double check and clarify which one it is? 

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  40. I made this tonight and we loved it. I only used half the amount of bell pepper but added red onion and snow peas. I also used frozen pineapple. It was spicy enough for my family without added any hot pepper.

  41. I made this but with much less peppers and added a bunch of stir fry veggies and still used pineapple. I had everything on hand but the sweet thai chili sauce. I found a recipe online and it was easy to make. I am glad I made it so I could control or lower the spice level. We love the flavors in this meal. Since we are doing WW smart points I didn’t serve it with rice. That is another reason I added a lot of veggies!

  42. This is an amazing recipe! We have made it several times, and it is on the menu for tonight! The portion is so filling, and it makes sticking to WW points so easy! My hubby eats a lot more than me, so I add brown rice to his plate to fill him up. Thanks for the awesome recipe!!! Your recipes are a WW miracle in my book!

  43. I made this tonight when I didnt have my daily menu ready! I did alter the recipe by adding to it  broccoli,snap peas and carrots and using 1/2lb of chicken. I didnt have sweet chili sauce so I made up a sauce with tropical fruit juice,garlic chili paste,stevia brown sugar,cider vinegar- more of a sweet and sour.  I followed cooking directions and it was tasty and full of veggies. I did figure the smart points on my version and it was 6.5 per serving, basically the same!

  44. Made this tonight. It was so good. I was out of sweet chili sauce and had to make some real fast, but all went well. Thank you for this recipe.

  45. I have oyster sauce on hand, do you think I could substitute that for the fish sauce?

  46. This is a new favorite at our house!  I added extra bell peppers and probably more Sweet Thai Chili Sauce than called for….also used a splash of siracha for heat instead of the red chili pepper, because my store doesn’t carry those.  (love small-town grocery stores!)  I served it over a Texmati rice blend, which was great.   The leftovers were fantastic the next day.  You could really add any vegetables you like, as the recipe is super-flexible.  

  47. Also the recipe says Thai sweet chilli sauce, why does everyone keep mentioning pineapple sweet chilli sauce. Am I missing something?

    • It looks like she changed the recipe. Thai sweet chili sauce will be just as delicious. The Thai Kitchen specific sauce that she mentioned before was sometimes difficult to find.

  48. Made this last night and my husband loved it. I used a mix of bell pepper and onions, and canned pineapples. The sauce I found was a sweet chilli sauce made it Thailand and it went great with it. Served it with garlic rice. Thanks for a great recipe.

  49. I made this last night — delicious!!

  50. Can you freeze leftovers?

  51. I've made this numerous times and it's still one of my favorite Skinnytaste recipes. I've made it with the pineapple & chili sauce mentioned, and I've also used either sweet chili sauce or a mixture of duck sauce and sweet & sour sauce. It's always come out great!

  52. I've made this three times and each time it has turned out fantastic! As many others here have discussed, finding the Pineapple sauce was tough, but I substituted it with Sweet Chili Sauce and it was still amazing.

    I also used potato flour instead of cornstarch just because I thought it might be a little bit healthier (?) and it turned out just great. I actually tried it once with the cornstarch and then the next time used potato flour – I really couldn't tell the difference.

    Thank you so much for this great recipe! I'll be eating leftovers for lunch today. 🙂

  53. If anyone is still having trouble finding the pineapple and chili dipping sauce, I recommend trying Albertsons if your town has one. That is where I found mine 🙂 Can't wait to make this for dinner tonight!

  54. 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.

  55. 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!

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

  57. 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!

  58. 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.

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

  60. Made this last night and everyone, even my picky teenager, loved it!


  61. Made this tonight, but added some broccoli as well. It was so pretty with all the colors and was so YUMMY! Thanks for all the great recipes!

  62. if i were to make this and let it cool completely, do you think it would freeze well??

  63. Yum! Just made it! Thanks, also I found the sauce and dip

  64. 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.

  65. Can't wait to make this recipe this week! Thanks for all of your great ideas!

  66. 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.

  67. 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!

  68. 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.

  69. 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.

  70. 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.

  71. 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!

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

  72. 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. has this at 301 per serving. Still not bad at all.

  73. 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!!!

  74. 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!

  75. 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.

  76. 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!!!!

  77. 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!

    • It is called sweet chili sauce comes in a 32 oz. bottle as well as smaller ones.  You can find it in the asian section at your supermarket or at any asian store.  I also use it on top of fried chicken or grilled chicken breasts.  Hope this works for you.  

  78. Just made this delicious dish and was received with lots of hmmms and ahhhhs, thank you! 🙂

  79. 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

  80. 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!

  81. 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.

  82. 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)!

  83. Just made this tonight! Awesome! Thanks for recipe.

  84. 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!

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

  86. 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!

  87. 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!

  88. 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.

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

  90. 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.

  91. Is there an alternative to cornstarch that I can use? (I am on a diet and and would appreciate some alternatives…)


    • Gina, this recipe looks amazing, but the cornstarch is deterring me because I am trying to avoid processed food as much as possible. Any suggestion would be wonderful. Thank you!!

  92. Scrumptious! Thanks for all of these delicious and super easy recipes!

  93. 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!

  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. 😉

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

  96. 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!

  97. Can't wait to make this. Sounds delicious with shrimp. How would that change the points? 😉

  98. 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!

  99. 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!

  100. 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!

  101. I just love happy accidents!!

    no this does not taste like fish.

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

  103. 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!

  104. 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!

  105. 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.

  106. 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!

  107. 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!

  108. 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!

  109. 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!!!

  110. 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!

  111. 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!

  112. 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!

  113. 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.

  114. 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!

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

  116. 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!

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

  118. 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.

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

  120. 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

  121. 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!

  122. This was the best stir fry recipe I've EVER had and my entire family agreed! 🙂 Keep the recipes comin! Love it, Gina!

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

  124. Great recipe! I love chicken ever! also try this one guys.. original Filipino recipes.. so delicious!

  125. 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.

  126. 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!

  127. 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!

  128. 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!


  129. 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!

  130. I used sweet chili sauce and it tasted amazing!

  131. Two words……Freakin yummy!

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

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

  134. 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!

  135. 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!

  136. 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…

  137. 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.

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

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

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

  141. 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!!

  142. 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?

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

  144. 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.

  145. 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.

  146. 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:

  147. 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.

  148. 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.

  149. 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.


  150. 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.

  151. 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!

  152. 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!

  153. 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!

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

  155. 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!!!!

  156. 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.

  157. 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!

  158. 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 😉

  159. 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!


  160. 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.

  161. Stiney – Thank you 🙂

  162. 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.

  163. 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

  164. pineapple chili sauce is available on the thai kitchen website

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

  166. Red pepper flakes or shriracha would even work!

  167. 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!

  168. Looks and sounds DElicious!

  169. Scratch that last comment…apparently I can't read 🙂

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

  171. Wow that looks SO good! Can't wait to taste it 🙂

  172. 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!

  173. 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!

    • 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!

    • 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

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

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

  176. 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?

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

  178. 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!

  179. Yum, yum, yum! I totally want to come over and eat with you the next time you make this! 🙂


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

  181. 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.

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

  183. Have you ever used canned pineapple for this?

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

  185. 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!

  186. Oh wow; you're after my own heart- thai food and chicken? And pineapple??
    Think I'll try to make this soon!
    Thanks 😀

  187. Looks amazing. Is there anything you can use in place of the fish sauce?

  188. Oh me oh my!!!!!! this looks divine!! this is definitely a must
