HAWAIIAN CHICKEN WITH COCONUT RICE


Hawaiian Chicken With Coconut Rice. A tropical-inspired meal that is simple, delicious, and makes me feel like I’m on vacation! The chicken is marinated in a flavorful soy and pineapple juice sauce, and can be grilled or pan-fried.






Ingredients



Hawaiian Chicken


  1. ~1 1/2 lbs chicken tenderloins 7-8 pieces
  2. 1/2 fresh ripe pineapple
  3. 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  4. 1/4 cup soy sauce
  5. 3 tbsp ketchup
  6. 2 tbsp brown sugar
  7. 5-6 cloves fresh garlic
  8. 2 tbsp canola oil
  9. 2 tbsp honey


Coconut Rice


  1. 1 cup basmati or jasmine rice
  2. 3/4 cup coconut milk
  3. 3/4 cup water
  4. 1 tbsp Fresh parsley chopped


Instructions




Hawaiian Chicken


  1. In a food processor or blender, blend pineapple juice, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, fresh garlic and canola oil to create the marinade for the chicken.
  2. Add chicken and marinade into a zip lock bag, mix well to ensure all chicken tenderloins are covered with marinate. Marinate for 1 hour, or up to 24 hours (the longer the better!). 
  3. Grease a grill pan, cast iron grill, charcoal grill, electric grill or non-stick skillet. 
  4. Cook chicken until it reaches 165 degrees F. Flip halfway through. Once chicken is done, brush honey on both sides of the tenderloins and remove.
  5. Slice pineapple into 1/2-1 inch thick slices and grill on both sides.


Coconut Rice


  1. On the stovetop, in a pot, bring to boil rice, water and coconut milk. Once boiled, bring to medium low heat and cook covered (cover with a tight lid and do not open) for ~17-20 minutes (See Note 1). Remove from heat.
  2. If using a rice cooker, follow rice cooker instruction. Use 1:1 ratio of coconut milk to water to substitute for the amount of water needed to cook the rice.
  3. Combine
  4. Serve chicken and pineapple on a bed of coconut rice, and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Enjoy!
