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.
