Pineapple Fried Rice

There are so many ways to cook fried rice. Yesterday, I did pineapple fried rice. Thought I'd share the simple recipe with you.

  • Chicken breast (marinate with salt, pepper and a little soy sauce)
  • French beans (sliced thin)
  • Carrot (cut into strips)
  • Garlic (sliced or chopped finely)
  • Pineapple (cubed)
  • Cooked rice
  • Kaffir lime leaves and basil leaves (4-5 leaves, not too much. You just want the aroma; You don't want it to be too overpowering. Cut into strips.)
  • Eggs (beaten)
  • With a little bit of cooking oil, stir fry the chicken breast. Put aside when chicken is cooked.
  • Add a little more cooking oil, then add the garlic. 
  • When garlic is just turning golden brown, add carrots and french beans.
  • Add in some oyster sauce.
  • When carrots and french beans are cooked, make a little hole in the center of your wok and pour in the eggs.
  • Scramble the eggs, then add the pineapple cubes.
  • Stir fry for a few minutes before adding the cooked rice.
  • Add in soy sauce, salt and dark soy sauce.
  • Just before turning off the fire, add in the kaffir lime leaves and basil leaves.
Just FYI, I cooked 4 cups of rice, 1 chicken breast, 3 eggs, 1 carrot and 1/2 a pineapple. 

Happy Cooking!
