Pineapple is a great additive to any recipe. It’s super high in vitamin C and manganese, and is high in fibre!

You can try cooking the chicken by using the stir-fry method (great, if you’re short on time), or you can simply try baking it. If you’re trying to go the healthier route, we suggest sticking it in the oven ahead of time. This allows you to have tender juicy chicken, without having to add any additional oils.
One of the main ingredients that has a big part in the burst of flavour is that lovely ginger. Ginger is a great ingredient to have in your recipes, especially when it has to do with chicken. Not to mention, it helps aide your digestive system. We love how most of the ingredients within this recipe are very health conscious. Especially, the use of low sodium soy sauce.
