Lately, I have been eating more Asian food that I usually do. Part of the reason why is because I had to create a series of Asian recipes. Of course, if they are cooked, then they have to be eaten too. Then the craving for more Asian dishes (even the ones that I am not obliged to cook) just overwhelmed me. My calamansi lemon trees are in full bloom again and when they are like that, I can only think of Asian dishes with dipping sauces. This rice doesn't require a dipping sauce but the meat or fish I eat it with definitely needs it.
This Pineapple and Chicken Fried Rice is one of my favorite rice mixtures. It has all the flavors that I am looking for in one spoonful. The sweetness & slight tartness from the pineapples give a lovely balance with the light saltiness of the the rest of the ingredients. It may seem strange but it is really worth trying. When I have mixed or fried rice, I accompany it with meat or fish without so much sauce because the rice is already loaded with other ingredients, so something simple is needed. My family enjoys this rice as is, without any additional meat or fish to go with it and sometimes, I do eat it the same way too. If you try this simple and tasty recipe, enjoy!
