About

Ok, time for this very yummy healthier "fried" rice! Really this recipe came up because I am working on emptying the fridge before we leave. The fun part of this rice is the chopped up fresh pineapple, it adds just a bit of sweetness and works wonderfully with the salty soy sauce.

In this recipe I made use of some left over garlicy chicken but you can certainly start out with uncooked chicken. I have a note in the recipe on when/how to cook the chicken. I've also noted an approx. calorie count per serving, keep track all in my effort to eat a little healthier.
