Total: 50 min.
The scents of lemon grass and pineapple will fill your kitchen as this dish cooks. Serve over aromatic jasmine rice.


  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 stalks lemon grass, chopped into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 piece ginger (about 2 inches), coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 2 Tbs Thai fish sauce (optional)
  • 1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 4 cups fresh pineapple, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Tbs mint, chopped


  • Place chicken broth in small saucepan. Add lemon grass, ginger, and lime zest. Bring to a simmer; cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in fish sauce (if using); set aside.
  • While the chicken broth mixture is simmering, warm vegetable oil over high heat in a large, non-stick skillet or wok. Toss chicken chunks in cornstarch.
  • Add chicken to heated oil in two batches; saute until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken, place on plate and set aside.
  • Add pineapple chunks to pan and saute quickly, about 2 minutes.
  • Return chicken to skillet or wok. Pour chicken broth into pan through strainer, separating out lemon grass, ginger, and lime zest pieces. Discard these pieces.
  • Stir over high heat until sauce reaches simmer, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 4 minutes, until sauce has thickened lightly; add salt. Sprinkle with cilantro and mint. Serve immediately over rice or noodles.
