  • 2 cups cooked jasmine rice, chilled
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish
  • Salt and black pepper for taste


Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

Add the diced chicken to the hot skillet and season with salt and black pepper. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Remove the cooked chicken from the skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Sauté the diced onion, minced garlic, and grated ginger until fragrant and lightly golden.

Add the diced red bell pepper to the skillet and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until slightly softened.

Push the vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour the chilled cooked rice on the other side. Break up any clumps of rice with a spatula and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes.

In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, and chili flakes (if using). Pour the sauce over the rice and vegetables and mix well.

Add the cooked chicken and pineapple chunks to the skillet and toss everything together until heated through, about 2-3 minutes.

Adjust the seasoning with salt and black pepper, if needed.
Remove the skillet from heat and garnish the Zesty Chicken Pineapple Fried Rice with sliced green onions and fresh cilantro leaves.

Serve the fried rice hot as a delicious and satisfying main course.
