Curried Rice with Pineapple and Chicken

I’m trying to incorporate more brown rice into my life.  When I picked up a box of minute brown rice, I noticed some of the recipes on the back of the box.  Normally I don’t bother reading them but the word curry caught my eye, and boy do I love me some curry.  I’m not afraid to admit that I made a recipe from the back of a box.  And it was delicious.  I added chicken at the end to make this side dish a main dish.

You’ll need:

  • 1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks
  • 2/3 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsps curry powder
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup brown rice, uncooked

Drain pineapple chunks, reserving juice. Add chicken broth (about 2/3 cup) to equal 1 cup liquid. Set aside.

Heat oil in medium pan over medium heat. Sauté curry powder and garlic 1 to 2 minutes or until garlic is lightly browned.

Add reserved pineapple juice mixture, pineapple chunks, and brown sugar; bring to boil. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to medium. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with fork.

Looks delish, doesn’t it?! It was.

And with all things curry (and really anything else I eat), I topped it off with some Sriracha Sauce. Mmmm.

honey baked chicken

it’s starting to be that time of year where i’m just reeealllyyyy busy with work.  messing around in the kitchen is not my priority.  i don’t remember how i stumbled across this recipe – it might have been in a spaz moment of ADD while working (sorry, dan!) – but it sounded delicious and i had to try it.

you’ll need:

  • chicken (i used chicken leg quarters because i was feeling cheap this week)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry
  • salt and pepper

pre heat the oven to 350.  put the chicken of choice in a baking dish.  mix the honey, butter, mustard, curry, salt and pepper together and pour over the chicken.  pop in the oven for about an hour and 20 minutes, basting every so often.  have a drink while waiting.  🙂

you’re welcome.
