This recipe was a huge hit. I am vegan so I used soy-based ginger chicken chunks, which reduced cooking time so it was really quick. I also used frozen pineapple pieces (from Trader Joes); their 16-oz bag is exactly 2 cups. I will definitely be making this again!

I love Recipezaar. I had a fresh pineapple - typed it into ingredients, and came up with this terrific recipe. We really liked it.

I LOVE this recipe! It's really easy, good in any season, and you can add other veggies in depending on your taste - I always add broccoli. Thanks for the great recipe!
