    Serves: 6 

    • 280g uncooked white rice
    • 700ml water
    • 1 tablespoon curry powder
    • 2 tablespoons Thai fish sauce
    • 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 450g chicken breasts, cubed
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 1/3 (432g) tins pineapple chunks, drained

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Bring the rice and water to the boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Set the cooked rice aside. Mix together curry powder, fish sauce and pineapple juice in a small bowl.
    2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers; cook and stir the chicken and onion until the chicken is no longer pink and the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice, pineapple chunks and curry mixture; cook and stir until the fried rice is hot, 5 to 10 minutes.


    Fried rice works best when the rice is cold.

    I am the recipe author. I made this as an experiment and my wife keeps clamoring for more. That's how I know when I've got a hit. I have since found that the following additions/substitutions work well: Egg; red bell pepper; broccoli; shrimp; scallions.  -  30 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We really enjoyed this rice. I added frozen sweet baby peas a few minute before serving and just mixed them into the hot rice so they could thaw. I also added a generous handful of bean sprouts at the last minute. I served this to company in half a pineapple, sliced on the diagonal and hollowed out. Looked and tasted GREAT!  -  02 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This dish was great! I added cashews, zucchini and basil. I think any added veggie would be great! Also, I left out the fish sauce and it was still very yummy!  -  10 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
