Pineapple Chicken Stir-Fry

 

Chicken & Pineapple Stir Fry

I don’t cook “Asian” type meals very often. Mostly because they primarily have rice or noodles. Also, because most recipes call for too many ingredients or odd sounding ingredients that I have to find at an Asian market. Which I’m not totally against and is quite fun!  However, not very conducive to an everyday type of meal.

I believe I have mentioned before, my favorite way to create a meal with some Asian flavor is with an Asian style salad dressing – most commonly the one from Kraft but other brands make a similar style.

The recipe I most often make with this dressing is Asian Chicken Bowl. One of our faves. This was a new meal for me and I found it to be quite tasty.

The pineapple does provide more carbs/sugar because it’s fruit. Natural sugar! But sugar nonetheless. So, if you are watching carbs/sugars or your dietitian told you to hold off for a bit, either skip it or don’t put it on your plate.

Super easy, super tasty…I hope you super enjoy!
