  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth

  • 3 stalks lemon grass, chopped into 2-inch pieces

  • 1 piece ginger (about 2 inches), coarsely chopped

  • 1 tsp lime zest

  • 2 Tbs Thai fish sauce (optional)

  • 2 1/2 Tbs cornstarch

  • 4 cups fresh pineapple, cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 1 tsp salt

  • Place chicken broth in small saucepan. Add lemon grass, ginger, and lime zest. Bring to a simmer; cover and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in fish sauce (if using); set aside.
  • While the chicken broth mixture is simmering, warm vegetable oil over high heat in a large, non-stick skillet or wok. Toss chicken chunks in cornstarch.
  • Add chicken to heated oil in two batches; sauté until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken, place on plate and set aside.
  • Add pineapple chunks to pan and sauté quickly, about 2 minutes.
