Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

  • 2 Tbs fresh lime juice

Directions

  • In a nonstick wok or large fry pan over high heat, warm oil. Add chicken and sauté until firm and well-browned, about 6 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside. Add pineapple and molasses to wok and stir-fry until the pineapple is brown and tender. Stir in the lime juice, red pepper flakes, scallions and chicken. Sauté until scallions are bright green and the chicken is fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Toss in ginger and serve over rice.
