Almond Chicken Stir-Fry

Almond Chicken Stir-Fry

"Margaret Wilson of Hemet, California shared the recipe for this yummy mainstay. Pineapple juice, ginger and soy sauce lend a slightly tangy flavor to the chicken strips and veggies in this pretty blend. A package of frozen vegetables speeds along the prep time, making this a quick meal for busy weeknights."

I made this with leftover pork tenderloin and meatballs. For the most part, I made as written, but I added butter, black pepper, red pepper and more brown sugar to the wok when cooking. Yummy!

We loved this dish! The almonds give such a great flavor. Instead of frozen vegetables, I opted for fresh broccoli and it was wonderful!!

This recipe was fantastic! I think the only thing I might do differently next time is add some more pineapple juice, or as some suggested- pineapple chunks. Everyone loved it!
