Everyone in my family enjoys this chicken pineapple stir fry. I started making this dish when I first received bok choy in my farm share and I didn’t know what else to do with it.

Over the years, I’ve concealed several different leafy greens in this dish. Any recipe that gets my children to happily eat a healthy green vegetable is a success in my book.

Chicken Pineapple Stir Fry Tips

You can prepare the ingredients ahead of time for a busy night. Then when it’s time for dinner, just load up your wok and the meal will be ready in no time.

The sauce is mild, so I recommend adding additional soy sauce, hot chili sauce, or fresh ginger if you’re looking for a stronger flavor. This recipe is a great starting point that can be adapted to your tastes.

Ingredients for the stir fry

  • 1 tbs peanut oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 lb broccoli florets chopped

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients.
  • In a wok or large skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of oil over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, carrots, bok choy, and scallions. Cook for three minutes, then remove them from the wok.

  1. What a great dish Annemarie!!! Easy and delicious. We have an exchange student living with us from Shanghai for the year, I’m def gonna try this and see how he likes it!

    1. Thanks, Allie! I hope he likes it. He’ll probably have some add-in ideas for the sauce that I don’t know about. 🙂

  2. I have been trying to remeember where I bookmarked this recipe!! I can’t wait to try!!! Definitely trying to find the balance of real food on a budget!

    1. I hope you enjoy this stir fry! It’s definitely a balancing act to eat real food on a budget, but it’s well worth the effort.

  3. With some pineapple in the fridge needing to be used up, I was really happy to stumble across this tonight—and it was delicious! I did throw in sweet pepper and subbed spinach (what I had) for the bok choy and cauliflower for the broccoli. Very, very good! Thanks!

    1. Thanks for letting me know, Jen. I’m glad you liked it! I’ll have to try it with cauliflower next time – that sounds really good.
