I have been in such a slump and tired of the same ol' same ol' recipes.  Thanks to my neighbor, I have been inspired to meal plan!  So, I have climbed the book shelf and scoured the recipe books, the internet and of course Pinterest!  So, I thought I would share a few recipes with you!  I will do them in different posts (so that you keep coming back -  :-)  he he! 

Last night for dinner we had:

Thai Chicken and Pineapple Stir-fry -

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp Thai Kitchen fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp oil, divided
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 cups cubed assorted colors bell peppers (1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1 red chili pepper, chopped (optional or to taste)
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 cup Thai Kitchen Pineapple & Chili dipping sauce
  • cilantro leaves (for garnish)


Mix chicken and fish sauce in medium bowl. Add cornstarch; toss to evenly coat. Set aside.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add garlic and
ginger; stir fry 30 seconds. Add bell peppers, chili pepper if using and pineapple; stir fry 3 to 5 minutes or until peppers are tender-crisp. Add sauce; cook and stir until heated through. Remove from skillet.

Heat remaining oil in the skillet. Add chicken; stir fry 5 minutes or until cooked through. Return bell pepper mixture to skillet; stir fry until well blended. Garnish with cilantro.

I could not find the Thai Kitchen Pineapple & Chili dipping sauce, only Chili dipping sauce and to keep the spice level down for the kids, I did not add in the pepper - I served it over rice - it was super yummy!
