If you are looking for something fast, easy, and that packs a flavor punch look no further! This is really tasty and takes only a few minutes to come together. What I love best about it is that it is freezer friendly. In other words, you can make the marinade, chop the chicken and peppers, throw it all in one bag and freeze. Then on the day you want it, pop it out of the freezer and cook it up, eazy peazy!
I love sweet mini peppers, and I love sriracha, and I am always looking for a great way to combine my favorites. Do you use sriracha? It is a Thai (?) hot sauce that has a lot of flavor. I love it in this Snap Pea and Shrimp Stir Fry, there is just something about it that mixes well with a little sweetness. I have been trying to avoid processed sugars (hahahaha), so I decided to make this with pineapple juice for the sweetener. Yummy! It is like a sweet and sour, but instead it is a sweet and spicy that takes boring chicken breast and makes it feel exotic. Let’s just call this sauce the little black dress for chicken! Delicious.

I served this over white rice, but it is also good over brown rice or quinoa. I am sure it would also be great with other vegetables thrown in! Have fun.
