Pineapple Fried Rice
We found this recipe after having this delicious dish at our favorite local Thai place, Thai Passion. I still like theirs better, but this recipe is very good too. The original recipe calls for shrimp, but we use chicken instead.
1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
0.33 cup cooking oil, or as needed
2 boneless chicken breasts, cubed
0.33 cup carrot, diced
0.33 cup onion, diced
1 egg, beaten
4 cups jasmine rice, cooked
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. white pepper
0.33 cup sweet peas
.33 cup raisins
0.25 cup soy sauce
1 fresh pineapple (cut in half, remove fruit, cut into chunks)
0.33 cup roasted cashews
In a wok at medium-high heat, add the garlic and oil and stir until golden brown. Add the chicken, carrot, and onion, and cook until chicken is cooked through.
Add the beaten egg and stir constantly for 30 seconds. Add rice, butter, sugar, white pepper, sweet pea, raisin, soy sauce and fresh pineapple and stir until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, approximately 3 minutes. Remove from heat, place in hollowed-out pineapple halves and top with cashews before serving.
