{Dad’s Pineapple and Chicken Rice}

This is one of my dads recipes and I haven’t had it since I moved away. So when I got the recipe from him and made it, my husband was way excited. We have missed this wonderful dish. I had no idea that it was so easy. This meal is one of our top favorite family recipes. Thanks dad!!

2 tsp olive oil
3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in bite size pieces
1 green bell pepper, cut into bite size pieces
1 can pineapple chunks with juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp chinese five spice (I use the McCormick brand)
2 cups jasmine rice

Cook the 2 cups of rice according to package directions.
While the rice is cooking in a large frying pan, heat up olive oil and add chicken chunks. Cook on medium-high heat until almost cooked through. Add the green bell pepper and cook along with the chicken until the chicken is cooked and starting to brown. Add the soy sauce, the pineapple along with the juice and the chinese five spice in with the chicken and stir to coat. Once the rice is done add the rice into the pan and stir. Cover with a lid and let heat through on low for about 8-10 minutes or until the green pepper is tender.
