Zesty pineapple chicken

    An easy midweek supper, this chicken stir fry is as delicious as it is colourful! Serve with rice for a complete meal, or fried rice for a treat. Add crushed red chilli to the mix if you want something sweet and spicy!

    1. Combine the soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of the oil, salt and paprika. Add the chicken breast strips and marinate whilst you prepare the remaining ingredients.
    2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan or wok. Add the red pepper and stir fry for 3 minutes. Add the spring onion and cook a couple minutes more.
    3. Add the chicken, discarding the marinade. Stir occasionally and cook until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the centre.
    4. Drain the pineapple juice into a bowl. Stir in the cornflour and set aside.
    5. Add the pineapple pieces to the chicken mixture and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the pineapple juice and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.

    I added 2 rashers of streaky bacon, a yellow pepper, garlic, fresh ginger & a red chilli. Yummy!  -  16 May 2017


    A little bland for me  -  12 May 2017


    This was a good recipe as a base, I added yellow pepper, broccoli, courgette, garlic and bacon lardons. otherwise it would have been a bit plain. the mix of tinned pineapple and soy sause gives a nice subtle sweet and sour flavour.  -  10 May 2017
