Baked Sticky Pineapple Ginger Chicken

Baked Sticky Pineapple Ginger Chicken

Baked or stir-fried Pineapple Ginger Chicken smothered in sticky sweet pineapple sauce with a ginger Sriracha kick that is WAY better than takeout.  This might just become your favorite meal – ever.

Since I started blogging last year, I have discovered the best and hardest part for me are the food pictures.  “Best” because I now love taking pictures (its been quite the learning curve from never picking up a nice camera before – evidence in all my early pics).   “Worst” because I have to look at the pics and then I get hungry.

Ingredients
