Asian Inspiration for Fried Rice

Stir-fry dishes are one of the best go-to meals when you need something hearty, delicious and ready in under 30 minutes. They’re also generally simple to prepare and are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters!

Inspired by your favorite takeout restaurant, this one-dish Chicken, Broccoli and Pineapple Stir-Fry has got it all. It’s sweet, savory and hearty, thanks to the addition of whole grain brown rice. Since Minute® Instant Brown Rice cooks up in just 10 minutes, you can get back to your evening routine in a matter of minutes.

If you’re thinking about skipping some of the ingredients in this dish, think again! The cornstarch may not seem necessary but it works as a thickening agent for the delicious sauce, making it more like a glaze. If you don’t have fresh grated ginger or garlic on hand, feel free to use ground ginger and garlic powder from your spice cabinet. Simply add them in with the sauce.
