Chicken and Pineapple Stir Fry

I've been trying to have a healthier 2018 as we all know eating well is good for your body and soul. Now, I'll never be one of those radical clean eating peeps, I love chocolate and carbs too much, but I'm trying to eat at least one vegetarian and a Weight Watchers recipe once a week. Having followed the Weight Watchers programme on and off for a number of years, I have amassed quite a few of their cookbooks. This recipe for chicken and pineapple stir fry is adapted from an old Weight Watchers Nice and Spicy cookbook, the recipe was actually chicken and mango stir fry. I struggled to find fresh mango and as tinned pineapple is widely available in supermarkets, I thought I'd try this.  The dish is on the table within 30 minutes which makes it a perfect mid week treat.
