Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Chicken Bowls




I'm normally not one to indulge in Asian inspired dishes and even though this isn't traditional Chinese it's my version of an Asian inspired meal! Oh my word...it was so incredibly good. My husband of course was so excited to dig in since he loves any type of stir fry or Chinese food. He loved it too. An overall win/win!

Cal 428, Carbs 69.5, Fat 4, Fiber 2, Protein 28

Ingredients
16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp oil, divided
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cups pineapple chunks
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
3 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup spicy pineapple sauce (I used Archer Farms)
4 cups cooked rice

Toss chicken in corn starch and flour and set aside. 

Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and saute for about one minute. Add red pepper and pineapple and stir fry for about 3-4 minutes. Add sauce and cook until heated through. Remove from skillet.

Heat remaining oil in the skillet. Add chicken; stir fry 5-10 minutes or until cooked through. Return pepper mixture to skillet; stir fry until well blended. Garnish with green onion and additional red pepper flakes if desired. Serve over rice. Enjoy!

  5. Marinades are my favorite cooking trick of all time. I remember in college when I discovered them I convinced myself that I could cook... my dillusion is not that far gone anymore, but I still have a special spot in my heart for marinade based recipe love. Stopping by from the Merry Monday linky party! Thanks for sharing! -Treana @ houseofbennetts.com
