Spicy Pineapple Chicken Recipe
Did you ever tear out a recipe from a magazine when you are at the doctor, dentist office, or perhaps while getting your hair done? That’s where I got this recipe for an easy spicy pineapple chicken dish. It sounded so incredibly easy, and tasty too. Plus I had been looking for a way to use the mint still thriving in my herb garden in November. Something other than for iced tea.
So with a fake cough to cover the sound, I ripped out a tiny corner of the magazine with this recipe. I tweaked the amounts but not the ingredients. I increased the pineapple chunks from a quarter cup to one cup and the garlic chilli sauce from two tablespoons to a half cup to have more of that tasty topping. I used the already cooked rice packets that you pop in the micro…garlic butter flavored. It was yum. Will be making this often.
Cook chicken fillets in hot olive oil in a skillet. Turn once. Cook until done.
In a separate bowl mix chopped pineapple and garlic chilli sauce. Chop up a half cup of fresh mint.
Cook the rice according to package directions. Stir in the chopped mint.
Top the rice with a chicken fillet. Spoon on pineapple mixture.
