Garden-fresh veggies and juicy pineapple give classic stir-fry a seasonal refresh. For an easy substitute, switch the chicken for thinly sliced boneless pork or peeled, deveined medium shrimp.

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium red onion, halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 3/4 cup zucchini cut into thin bite-size strips
  • 3/4 cup trimmed fresh pea pods, tips and strings removed
  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (12 ounces total), cut into thin bite-size strips
  • 1/4 of a fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into bite-size pieces (1 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons bottled stir-fry sauce
  • Brown rice (optional)
  • Fresh pineapple wedges (optional)

Directions

  1. In a wok or large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Stir-fry red onion in hot oil for 2 minutes. Add zucchini and pea pods. Stir-fry for 2 minutes more. Remove mixture from wok.
  2. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to hot wok. Add chicken. Stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink. Return onion mixture to wok. Add pineapple and stir-fry sauce. Cook and stir about 1 minute or until heated through. If desired, serve over brown rice with fresh pineapple wedges.

Variation

  • For an easy substitute, switch the chicken for thinly sliced boneless pork or peeled, deveined medium shrimp.

Note

  • Bottled stir-fry sauce is a handy time-saver. We especially like Kikkoman's preservative-free version flavored with ginger and sesame oil, but any brand will work well in this dish.
