Hawaiian chicken for dinner!

I forgot to take a picture for you! Whoopsy-daisy!

This is a 1 pot dish if you already have cooked chicken on hand. I love 1 pot dishes for dinner!

Hawaiian Chicken

Ingredients

  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped small
  • 2 cups rice
  • 2-3 Tbsp good fat, coconut oil or butter
  • 1 can mandarin oranges
  • 1 can pineapple
  • dried cranberries
  • salt
  • coconut milk
  • optional – toasted almonds, other veggies

Instructions

Note: I sometimes add chopped peppers, or mangoes – whatever I think will be good. You can even add pieces of butternut squash, chopped small and already roasted.

  1. Cook the rice according to package directions including the good fat and salt. I use 2 tsp. salt
  2. Add in chopped chicken, mandarin oranges, pineapple, dried cranberries, 1/2 can coconut milk (or more to taste) and any other creative options your heart desires.
  3. Serve together with the almonds in a side dish. We like to let our kids add their own nuts or not, whichever they choose. Usually, they want what the adults are having.
  4. The key to this recipe is use what you have. I will sometimes use leftover fresh pineapple. The coconut milk and the juice from the mandarin oranges are what give it that Hawaiian flavor. Have fun!!
