Pineapple Chicken and Rice Dinner Recipe. Tender chicken cooked in a sweet pineapple honey Dijon sauce and served over rice.
It is time for dinner! It is always great to have a chicken dinner recipe on hand. Especially a simple one with common ingredients. I typically serve this chicken recipe over rice and that is it! No other sides are needed. If I do add a side it is steamed broccoli or a vegetable medley.
Cornstarch is used to thicken the sauce
In the recipe it instructs you to mix together the cornstarch and some pineapple juice and set aside. While it is set aside it will start to thicken. Before you pour it in the pan give it another stir to loosen it up.
When it comes to rice I use jasmine rice. I just like it better. When I cook my rice I add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pot. I just throw it in the water. I think it makes the rice better.
Make a bed of rice and lay chicken on top. Spoon extra sauce over the chicken. Top with a pineapple slice or two.
How to serve to kids
For the kiddos I cut up the chicken and a slice of pineapple into bite size pieces and in a bowl I spoon in extra sauce and some rice and stir it all up.
