Teriyaki Chicken Pineapple Bowls πŸ

I got this recipe from Buzzfeed.com and like it almost exactly how it is.

Almost πŸ˜‰

The recipe doesn’t include any of the pineapple that gets hollowed out from the ‘dish’ but I chop up about a cup and a half and add it to the skillet.

Enjoy! 🍴

 

 

Teriyaki Chicken Pineapple Bowls

 

Makes 2 servings
Estimated total time: 20 minutes
INGREDIENTS
1 large pineapple
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
ΒΎ cup soy sauce
ΒΌ cup packed brown sugar
ΒΌ cup honey
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 cups cooked white rice, divided

PREPARATION

Cut pineapple in half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh of each half, leaving about a half-inch on the sides to make sure the pineapple boats are sturdy. Discard the flesh or set it aside to eat later, and drain any juices.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the chicken thighs and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, and honey, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, then turn the heat down to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick and the chicken is cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes. Add the sesame seeds and stir to combine, then remove the pan from the heat.
Scoop a cup of rice into each of the pineapple boats, then divide the teriyaki chicken among the boats and serve.

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
