Pineapple fried rice is a quick and easy weeknight meal. You can use leftover rice from a previous days meal and just about any ingredients or odds and ends left over in your fridge.
For this recipe, I used chicken, but you could easily substitute shrimp or pork.
Pineapple fried rice ingredients:
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
8 oz cooked chicken, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon diced chili- I used red bell pepper in the video but feel free to use something with heat
2 cups cooked Jasmine rice
1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced
2 Tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup green onion, sliced
1/4 cup cashew nuts (optional)
Pineapple fried rice directions:
Heat the oil in a large skillet and add the garlic and chilis. Stir fry for about 30 seconds or until the garlic is golden brown, being careful not to burn it.
Add the chicken , rice and pineapple and stir fry until everything is heated through. Add the fish sauce and sugar and mix well until it is evenly distributed.
Serve the fried rice in a pineapple bowl and garnish with green onions and cashews.
