This stir fry turned out very nice, it had a sweet and zesty taste. The combination of red peppers and peas wasn’t masked by the sweet pineapples, which can be a little overbearing in some dishes.
This chicken stir fry a very pleasing dish to the eye as well. It’s a great recipe for beginner cooks! Unfortunately we were not able to find a bottle of Sake in our local grocery store to go with the Stir Fry so we opted to make a Cranberry Martini instead. Yum!
