YUM! This is better than anything I can get from the nearest takeout. Perfect marriage of flavors. I used red jalapeno peppers, and deboned chicken thigh meat that I'd slow-simmered first in some of the marinade, which I made myself since I don't have a Piggly Wiggly near me (sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger paste, garlic paste, wasabi powder, a pinch of 5 spice, white pepper, and a little arrowroot powder). The pineapple and juice gave it just the right sweetness. I served it over jasmine rice and garnished it with chopped cilantro. I'll see if I can order some Newton Farms Ginger Wasabi Marinade for next time. Thanks Miss Fannie -- this is my favorite recipe of yours yet! Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2013.

I had trouble finding any sesame and ginger marinade for this recipe, so I had to make my own, which I think may have not had as much flavour as a bought marinade may have had. <br/>I cut down on the chilli and added cashews instead of peanuts, and this turned out quick nicely, although I think it would have been a lot easier and a little tastier if I had used bought marinade.<br/>The family really liked it, but I am now on the look out for the marinade to make this wonderful recipe even easier.<br/>Thanks Miss Fannie.

WOW this is a delicious chicken dish! Easy to make and packed with flavor. I made half of the recipe; I used Ginger People ginger peanut sauce and 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes for the red chilies. Loved the combination of the sweet pineapple with the salty peanut and the spicy pepper. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Great instant dinner, good change of pace! We had 2 huge Perdue chicken breasts, so we sliced each into 2 filets, which worked out very well. I sprayed the chicken breasts instead of the pan, and while waiting to flip, I sprayed the other side; I heartily recommend this approach! Couldn't find the small red chili peppers, so used 1 large red jalapeno, which lent some noticeable heat, but not a lot. I threw in some additional red bell pepper, didn't want to toss it. Used Lawry's Sesame & Ginger Marinade, which I recommend, but I think I will try making my own marinade next time. Use honey-roasted dry-roasted peanuts. Served with Coconut Mango Rice #505471. Made for Best of 2013 tag, based on loof's recommendation.
