Pineapple Fried Rice with Curry

My husband really likes pineapple fried rice.  Any time we go to a restaurant and it’s on the menu, that’s what he orders.  Previously I had made a pineapple fried rice recipe, but I had never tried it in a restaurant.  He said it was good but different than what he was accustomed to.  I finally found a place in Denton, TX that serves a pineapple fried rice that’s gluten free.  I ordered it, of course, and I asked my husband if it tasted similar to the ones he normally ate and he said yes.  So, this is my more accurate version of pineapple fried rice.  The other one is good, but this one is more like it is in the restaurants :-).  I cooked the chicken and rice ahead of time and I already had chopped the pineapple, so this came together really quickly.

 

Ingredients:

3-4 T. olive oil

1 small onion, sliced

1 red pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces

1/2 c. frozen peas and carrots

1 c. cooked chicken, diced in 1/2 to 1 inch pieces

1-2 tsp curry powder

1 1/2 tsp coriander

6 c. cooked rice (Basmati or Jasmine)- day old preferred, or let it sit out on plates for 1-2 hours beforehand

1 1/2 T. brown sugar

2 1/2 T. gluten free soy sauce (I prefer Kikkoman’s gluten free soy sauce)

1/4 tsp white pepper

2 green onions, diced

1 1/2 c. pineapple, diced

1 c. cashews

1 medium tomato, diced (optional)

*scrambled eggs can be added if desired

 

Directions:

Heat olive oil in a large skillet.  Add onions, red pepper, peas and carrots, and chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Add curry powder and coriander and stir until it’s well mixed in.  Cook for another 1-2 minutes.  Add rice and stir until seasoning is mixed well into rice.  Cook for 2-3 minutes more.  Stir together brown sugar and soy sauce and then pour into skillet and stir until rice is coated.  Sprinkle in white pepper and stir to coat.  Add green onions, pineapple, cashews, and tomato.  Add more raisins if desired.  If you can eat eggs, add in some pre-scrambled eggs now.  Cook just until all ingredients are warm- about 3-5 minutes.   Serve and enjoy!

I eat gluten, dairy, and egg free and want to make food that other people would want to eat too.
