Amanda’s Grilled Pineapple Fried Rice

Yesterday I posted a photo of my Pineapple Fried Rice from the weekend. I have to say this was the 2nd time I coooked that recipe this weekend. It was so delicious Ryan and I decided we had to have it again! I think it will become a regular dish at our house.

My dear friend Stanton messaged me this morning and requested I post my recipe. So here ya go Stanton!

Amanda’s Grilled Pineapple Fried Rice

Prep time: about 15 minutes

Cook time: about 15 minutes

Servings: Feeds about 2 adults who love fried rice

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a fresh pineapple, cut up in to large chunks and skewered for cooking on the grill
  • 1 cup white or brown rice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium white onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Chipotle Tobasco (you could substitue any hot sauce of your choosing, add more or less to taste)
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic (more or less to taste)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 – 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1 large red bell pepper, or 8 mini sweet peppers, skewered for cooking on the grill
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce (more or less to taste)
  1. Cook the chicken breasts until done on the grill.  Use this time to also grill up the pineapple and peppers. You can also saute these in a pan on the stove if you prefer. You want the pineapple to be slightly brown on the outside. Better taste a piece to make sure its good (just limit yourself to 1 piece. It will be hard!)
  2. While cooking the chicken and other items on the grill, start your rice cooking according to its instructions.
  3. Take your cooked chicken breast and dice it up into small chunks. Set aside.
  4. Dice up your pineapple to smaller bits along with your peppers. Set aside.
  5. In a skillet, heat up the oil, soy sauce and garlic. Once it is a bit hot crack your egg into the pan and stir it up to scramble it.
  6. Once the egg is mostly cooked, toss in the diced onions.  Cook until the onions start getting translucent.
  7. Toss in your peas and carrots, and peppers.
  8. Now add your cooked rice. Here you can add your hot sauce, and some more soy sauce if you wish. Mix this around and let it cook for about 5 minutes until the rice starts getting browned to your liking. Keep stirring so you don’t burn it.
  9. Add in the chicken and the pineapple.  Continue cooking for a couple more minutes.
  10. Dish up and enjoy.

This recipe isn’t entirely my own creation. I took the Pioneer Woman’s Pork Chops and Pineapple Fried Recipe and spiced it up a bit. We didn’t have siracha (shocking really!) and I don’t like pimentos. We also added in carrots, chicken and the peppers. I did make the recipe the first time along with the pork chops and boy was it delicious. Feel free to make it your own!

Hope you guys enjoy it!
