“I started to make pineapple chicken the other day and ended up with something very different. This dish has a good orange sweet flavor with a hint of pineapple and fills the house with a nice orange smell while cooking. I used crushed pineapple, but I think the tidbits below would be better. Cooking time does not include the cooking of the rice”
