Chicken and Pineapple Fried Rice…

We love sweet and savoury together. Cheese, ham and pineapple on sticks is a common party food that so many people love. Pineapple on pizza is another, although that is more of a Marmite situation, you either love it or hate it, personally we love it. Sweet and sour with pineapple from the Chinese… yum. Fruit goes so well in many meals.

You can even use the sin of the pineapple as a bowl to serve this in to save on washing up. Perfect.

Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…

  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
  • I love gadgets but you can often find some that don’t work, however this pineapple corer is ace, simple to use too. Obviously if you want to serve it in the pineapple you don’t want to use this.
  • A big time saver for chopping veg with a veg chopper, from onions to carrots this is a god send to chop quickly.
