I didn't have asparagus- used green peppers instead.

This was outstanding! It was sweet, spicy and crunchy. My husband said this definitely goes on the "family favorites" list. A little too spicy for my little ones, so I took some of the tenders and browned them up on the side for them, then gave them some of the rice and the rest of the pineapple from the can.

This was very quick, light and delicious. I don't always like pineapple in recipes but I liked this.
