2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1¼ cups [2¼ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the chicken.


Marinate the chicken

  • Measure ¾ cup [1½ cups] pineapple and coarsely chop; set aside for the slaw. Finely chop enough of the remaining pineapple to measure ¼ cup [½ cup] for the marinade.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. 

In a medium bowl, stir together the chicken, finely chopped pineapple, teriyaki glaze, and ketchup and season with salt and pepper. Let stand while you prepare the slaw.


Make the pineapple and celery slaw

  • Zest the lime. Juice the lime into a medium bowl. [Zest and juice 1 lime; save the remaining lime for another use.]
  • Thinly slice the celery.
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure ¼ cup [½ cup].

To the bowl with the lime juice, add the celery, onion, coarsely chopped pineapple, and ½ teaspoon [1 tsp] lime zest and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Cook the chicken

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Add the chicken to the pan and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side for thighs, 4 to 6 minutes per side for breasts.


Transfer the rice to individual bowls. Top with the huli huli chicken and pineapple and celery slaw and serve.
