Low-Fat Chinese Stir-Fried Pineapple Chicken Recipe
Here is a healthy chicken stir-fry dish recipe. If you are a Chinese food aficionado, you must be familiar with Chinese stir-fried pineapple chicken. Unfortunately in American Chinese cuisine, most of the dishes are too sweet, salty and full of grease. The typical pineapple chicken in Chinese take out are dominantly deep-fried chicken and coated with high sodium sauce.
Unlike "deep-fried" pineapple chicken stir-fried, this recipe is not involving deep-frying method of cooking but pan-frying with very little amount of oil. I love to use fresh pineapple to get better flavor, but you are welcome to use canned pineapple as long its not sugar added one. If you are going to use sugar added canned pineapple, you may reduce the sugar amount.
This is a lovely, beautiful and colorful dish to serve in any occasion especially for potluck or picnic. The chicken morsels are juicy, tender, caramelized with pineapple natural sugar and lightly coat with low sodium savory sauce.
