Pineapple Chicken and Cilantro Rice

Pineapple-ChickenBack to cooking again. I’m not a professional but love chopping things up and then eating my creations. That sounds like something Hannibal would say, but it’s true. I was looking through my pantry and noticed a can of crushed pineapple. Immediately thinking, “That would be good with chicken.” I also had a pineapple Greek yogurt on hand. Not having a recipe, I started thinking how I wanted do this. I normally Google for ideas, but not this time. This is my very own.

Ingredients

3 Chicken breasts
2 Chobani pineapple Greek yogurt (6 oz)
1 Can of crushed or chunk pineapple (20 oz) Do not drain
1 Cup of chicken broth (I use low-sodium, no MSG)
Salt and pepper to taste
A few dashes of curry powder to taste

Directions

Whisk together the yogurt, pineapple, chicken broth, salt, pepper and curry. Add chicken to a crock pot and pour sauce over it. Cook until chicken starts to fall apart. I severed over a minute rice.

Tip: Because the bunnies eat lots of cilantro, I always have it on hand. I cook with it a lot. I always add fresh diced cilantro and a touch of lime juice to my rice. It gives boring rice a little zip without using butter. I added flour at the end for a thick-creamer sauce, but I think I added too much. It took away from the flavor of the pineapple. It was still good, but I’m going to eliminate it and use more Greek yogurt the next time.

Now it’s time for soups. Here it is January and I haven’t made any homemade soups this wintery season. Do you have any good ideas? Please share.
