Pineapple Chicken Stirfry.

Are you ready for this? Better yet, are you Grilled & Ready?!

You see, I was asked by Foodbuzz and Tyson® to create a delicious meal with Tyson’s fantastic new product, Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips, and I’m excited to show you the fabulous food I created with such ease!

This is such a tasty dish, and it brings together so many of the bright colors and flavors of spring – without all the fuss! Tyson® made it easy for me, grilling the chicken in a perfect blend of seasonings, and I only needed to add some veggies and some fun!

Pineapple Chicken Stirfry

  • 1/2 package (22 oz.) Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips, frozen
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 medium red pepper, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1/2 medium onion, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 4 ribs celery, sliced
  • 6 oz. package snow peas
  • 8 oz. can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 2 packets mushroom gravy mix (or 1 12 oz. jar prepared mushroom gravy)
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • hot cooked rice

1. To begin, put 1/2 a package (11 oz.) of still-frozen Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips into a large Stirfry Skillet. (A wok would work beautifully, but my Stirfry Skillet has a rounded bottom, too.)  Turn the heat to medium-high.

2. Add a splash of water to get things sizzling.  Cover and cook up your tenders until soft and tender.  At this point, the seasoning smells ah-mazing, and it’s okay if you find a tiny piece of chicken and have a pre-dinner nibble. ;-)

3. Remove the chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.  Add all of your veggies (peppers, onion, celery, and snow peas) to the skillet, and cook until crisp-tender, about 5-6 minutes. Be sure to stir the veggies around every couple minutes during this process.

4. While the veggies are cooking, prepare your mushroom gravy.  (If you are using jarred gravy, you may skip this step.)  Measure 2 cups cold water into a larger glass, and add the mushroom gravy packets.  Whisk until well-combined.

5. Microwave the mixture on HIGH for 3 minutes, stopping every 1 minute to whisk again.  Your gravy should be very hot and smooth with a bit of foam at the top when it’s ready. Set aside 1/2 cup (4 oz.) of gravy for another recipe. (You will only need 12 oz. for this meal.)

6. To the gravy, add 3 Tbsp. soy sauce and 1/2 tsp. ground ginger.  Whisk very well.

7. When veggies are ready in the skillet, pour gravy over them.

8. Add the grilled chicken back to the skillet, as well as the pineapple (well-drained*). Stir to coat everything nicely in the gravy; cover and cook another 5 minutes, or until heated through, stirring twice.

(* When draining your pineapple, reserve the juice. I like to have this
as a special beverage “treat” when eating my dinner a bit later on!)

9. Serve over hot cooked rice, and enjoy! Of course, if you’re like me, you’ll dish up the food for the rest of your family, and then run out to the terrace with your own plate to play with your camera.  I took these photos very quickly because the smell was so intense & inviting, and I couldn’t wait to dig right in!

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips. The endorsements stated above are my own actual opinions on the product. Even better, I still have 1/2 a package left to create another tasty recipe! :-)

    This looks great! I’m going to look for that chicken next time I’m at the store — it would be really handy to have some on hand for the days we forget to defrost something!

    My only question – What’s the sodium level in the chicken?

    • Nicole on said:

      Leanne, I just checked the leftover 1/2 package in my freezer, and because I got more servings out of the bag than recommended, I would estimate the sodium to be at 400mg/serving.

      I imagine that’s fairly high, but I can also tell you from experience that this recipe is GREAT with your own chicken as well. :-)
