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
- 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)
- 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!)
- While cooking the chicken and other items on the grill, start your rice cooking according to its instructions.
- Take your cooked chicken breast and dice it up into small chunks. Set aside.
- Dice up your pineapple to smaller bits along with your peppers. Set aside.
- 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.
- Once the egg is mostly cooked, toss in the diced onions. Cook until the onions start getting translucent.
- Toss in your peas and carrots, and peppers.
- 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.
- Add in the chicken and the pineapple. Continue cooking for a couple more minutes.
- 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!
