I adapted this recipe from one I found on "" My version is lower in fat, calories, and sugar, and tastes great too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray.
  2. Sauté garlic for 2 minutes. Add chicken and brown over medium heat. Add bell pepper, carrot, celery, and pea pods and stir fry for 5-7 minutes, until carrots soften just a bit.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and soy sauce and mix. Pour into skillet, along with pineapple, vinegar, Sugar Twin, and ginger. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat and simmer 1-2 minutes until sauce thickens.
  5. Serve over hot rice, or cabbage for a "lower carb" option.

An absolutely wonderful stir fry. I added some candied ginger and a little more garlic because of personal preference. I omitted the sugar substitute completely. I also used a mix of fresh and frozen vegetables. I served it on brown whole grain rice and my family devoured it. I will definitely make this healthy meal for my family again.

This was actually my second time making this dish and it's WONDERFUL! I didn't follow the veggies exactly either time... both times I used whatever frozen mixed veggies (broccoli, carrots, peppers, onions, etc) I had on hand, and some frozen edamame. Last night I put in a bunch of fresh mushrooms also, and made a little extra sauce. Served it over rice noodles. So tasty & so easy! Thank you!! :-)

This is a family favorite that will begin heavy rotation in the months to come. I took a bit of a shortcut and bought a rather large bag of frozen Asian Vegetables (already cut!!). I did have to buy a bell pepper to stick to your wonderful recipe here. Being diabetic, I shaved off a few carbs by NOT using the pineapple juice but draining and replacing the liquid with water. I am sure it would have tasted fantastic had I not done this. Thanks for making me a better cook!!
