Stir Fried Pineapple Chicken


This is a favourite in the parties that often happen at my place. And tastes really nice as a side to Pasta. It has a sweet and sour flavour to it, and I personally love the twang of pineapple in this very colorful dish.

INGREDIENTS

½ Kg chicken (preferably breast), cut into slices
2-3 tablespoon soy sauce
1 Can Del Monte pineapple tid bits (crushed)
½ " slice fresh ginger grated
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon cooking wine
3-4 tablespoons Del Monte Olive Oil
1 big onion, sliced (not very thinly)
1 sliced yellow bell pepper
1 sliced red bell pepper
1 tablespoon Butter
½ spoons freshly crushed black pepper
Little salt to taste
  1. Place washed chicken in a bowl. Combine crushed pineapple, 1 tablespoon red wine, ginger and soy sauce.
  2. Allow the chicken to marinate for 1 hour in the fridge.
  3. In a medium deep pan heat the oil and sauté garlic and onion lightly.
  4. Add the marinated chicken pieces. Reserve the marinade for later.
  5. When chicken is half cooked, add the marinade little by little to use the entire marinade but not make it soupy over low heat.
  6. When chicken is tender and almost cooked, add in the bell peppers to the wok/pan and saute them till done. Add salt. Don’t overcook the peppers.
  7. Serve it hot in a shallow dish.  Add the butter on top of the serving and crush fresh pepper on  the serving.
I also add in red chilly flakes for myself because I really like spicy food, it is a good option.
Also you could add more veggies like broccoli and mushrooms if you like.
