This Spicy Tropical Chicken Stir Fry is one of the very first recipes posted on this blog - just over 11 years ago!
Much like with the Cilantro Chicken Recipe and the Clementines Marmalade (Which didn't even HAVE any photos, for some reason!)... it was definitely in need of an update and new photos. Can we take a second here to appreciate how awful the original accompanying photo was?
... yikes. Seriously.
As we were overhauling it, I took the opportunity to update the recipe itself. It originally called for a bag of frozen stir fry mix, which is something we haven't done in... a very long time. I swapped that out for fresh peppers, and also changed the original serving - with ribbons of zucchini - to utilize zoodles. I love our Zoodler (This one), and tend to look for any excuse to use it!
This recipe is great as a relatively low carb (and mostly "Paleo" friendly) entree. It's Gluten-free and dairy free, also! I love the way the fruit and spices accent each other, the creaminess of the sauce, and the crunch of the peppers. Just a really beautiful (now, anyway!), satisfying dish!
Also, if you're interested in gluten-free cooking and baking, you should definitely check out my gluten-free cookbooks: Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten Free Cooking & Baking, and the sequel... Beyond Flour 2. You can order them right here on my website, through Amazon, or through any major bookseller.
