Dinner is served, and it’s jam-packed with explosive flavors. Once you sizzle your chicken into classic stir fry form, make sure to add in a healthy amount of your favorite chili garlic sauce. Having that on your chicken will prove that you can take the heat, and of course, stay in the kitchen!

In order to balance out the heat of that chili garlic sauce, give your stir fry a big hit of pineapple. To do that, we recommend using Dole’s pineapple chunks. They’re presliced perfection and add a balancing hit of sweetness in a matter of seconds.
