Helpful hints

  • Pineapple chunks can be used instead of slices, if desired.
  • For a lower protein dish try boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast .
  • For a lower carbohydrate dish omit the rice and serve with a non-starchy vegetable such as summer squash, carrots or green beans.
