Pineapple Chicken

Servings: 4
Total Time: 30 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


2 TBSP peanut oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into bite size chunks
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup plus 1 TBSP water
4 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP sriracha
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 TBSP cornstarch
12 ounces pineapple chunks
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup peanuts
2 green onions, thinly sliced
steamed white rice for serving


1. Heat the peanut oil in a wok or large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken chunks to the pan and cook until lightly browned and chicken is mostly cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add the bell pepper to the chicken and cook 3 more minutes. Transfer the chicken and pepper and any juices to a bowl and set aside.

2. Reduce the heat to medium-high heat and add the 1 cup water, soy sauce, sriracha, garlic, and ginger to the now empty pan and stir to combine.

3. In a separate small bowl whisk together the cornstarch and 1 TBSP water until cornstarch is fully dissolved. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the pan with the sauce. Cook until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes.

4. Add the chicken and bell pepper to the sauce along with the pineapple, sesame oil and peanuts. Stir to combine and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

5. Transfer to a large serving dish and sprinkle with the sliced green onion. Serve with steamed rice.
