On a recent holiday in Bangkok, I tasted some excellent street food. This fried rice recipe with pineapple, chicken, and prawns is inspired by one of the dishes I really enjoyed.
Use fresh pineapple when available. Hollow out pineapple and serve it in the shell.
Using day old cold rice from the fridge will work best. It also works well with brown rice.
Tips: Use day old COLD rice and break it up with your hands before adding. Use light soy instead of regualr soy as per my oriinal recipe. For added fun toss in a cup of bean sprouts in the last minute. - 13 Jul 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
We have really come to love this meal! Like any good cook, I've added my own twists as I've made it each time. I skip the shrimp since my wife isn't a big fan and double the chicken, BUT... I use chicken thighs, cut into small pieces and then marinate overnight in sweet soy sauce, sesame oil and Sriracha chili paste. When it comes to the egg, I like using duck eggs if I can find them and I also add broccoli, diced red pepper and chopped cashews. Also, always make the rice a day or two ahead and leave uncovered in a big bowl in your fridge. It will dry out and you then break it up with your hands before adding to the dish which makes much better fried rice. Super delicious! - 07 Jun 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was tasty and straight forward. I added chopped vegis to round it out. If you love curry you will definitely love this. Thanks for sharing! - 18 Jul 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
