|The pineapple on the left is no where near ripe and ready to eat.|
The pineapple on the right should be juicy and sweet!
When I saw our grocery store was brimming with pineapples I knew I had to pick up a few. After spotting a recipe for a lighter sweet and sour chicken I knew exactly what we were having for dinner.
Grab some of the yellowest pineapple you can find, pick up some bright bell peppers, and feast on this delicious one-skillet dish. If you're not a pineapple fan you can always make this and skip over the pineapple (but, that would be a crying shame).
Sweet and Sour Chicken - A Lighter Version
For the Stir Fry:
To my pleasant surprise, this dish was so much easier to put together than I had anticipated. The only thing I'll be sure to have on hand while making it is a few prepping bowls immediately on hand.
Scott loved it. I did too, however I think 3 full tablespoons of sriracha sauce was a bit too much for me. I've gotten better about liking/enjoying food with a little kick, however, this was just a tad too hot for me. The next time I make this - there most certainly will be a next time - I'll scale down the hot sauce.
Side note: I found this recipe over at Iowa Girl Eats. Iowa Girl, Kristen had guest blogger, Ali at Give Me Some Oven, share this recipe. After reading, making, and loving the recipe, Give Me Some Oven was quickly added to my list of favorite food bloggers. If you like this recipe be sure to stop by Give Some Oven and check her out.
