Instructions

0/5 Instructions
  • Mix together all marinade ingredients aside from corn starch in a container large enough to hold the chicken while it marinates in the refrigerator. Thoroughly coat chicken with all of the marinade and place in the fridge for 30 mins.
  • Place all of the super-charged rice ingredients in a pressure cooker. Pressure cook on high for 4 mins. Use the keep warm feature and allow the rice to naturally release for at least 20 mins.
  • In a large saute pan caramelize the onion in olive oil over medium heat while you cut the pineapple. Add pineapple chunks when onion is translucent and somewhat caramelized. Bring pineapple up to temp where it starts to release its juices and they begin to simmer. Add chicken to the pan leaving most of the marinade behind and stir together gently until the chicken begins to cook. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover to saute.
  • While chicken is sauteing whisk together the remaining marinade with the corn starch to thicken to a sauce. If it feels too thick, simply add a splash of water and whisk again. Add sauce to the saute pan and stir to evenly coat. Cover and simmer a little while longer (2 mins) to make sure all the chicken juice in the marinade gets up to temperature.
  • Serve the chicken hot on top of a bed of the rice.
