Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry

I posted a picture of our stir fry dinner on Instagram Stories a while back, and I had so many people DM me to ask me what it was and to provide the recipe.  Well, I finally got my act together, and here it is!  A couple of months later, but never mind that.  Hehe. 

Buy It

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Garlic powder
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
Teriyaki sauce
Stir Fry sauce (we like Kikkoman)
1 red pepper, chopped
1 bunch of broccoli cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp. stir fry sauce
1 can pineapple chunks in natural juices
1 package boil-in-the-bag brown rice

Make It

1.      Wash and trim chicken breasts, sprinkle both sides with garlic, salt, and pepper, and cut into bite-sized pieces.
2.      Put cooking oil in large pan and add chicken pieces to oil.  Cover liberally with teriyaki sauce and stir fry sauce and then cook chicken over medium high heat.
3.      When chicken is fully cooked, add red peppers, broccoli, stir fry sauce, and a dash of the juice from the canned pineapple and continue cooking over medium high heat, adding more pineapple juice if mixture starts to stick.
4.      Prepare rice in a separate pot by following instructions on the box.  (Mine usually has to boil for 10 minutes.)
5.      Once red peppers and broccoli are tender (usually after about 10-15 minutes) add the can of pineapple plus the rest of the juice and continue cooking on medium high heat for another 5 minutes.
6.      Once pineapple is heated through, serve the chicken/pineapple/red pepper/broccoli mixture over a bed of brown rice.

One of my girlfriends and I actually created this dish one evening about ten years ago when we wanted to cook together for our husbands, and it’s been a staple in our house ever since.  It’s simple, quick, and light on those hot summer nights!

Bon appétit!
