Mealthy Tip

You could use canned pineapple and the juice from the can, but definitely consider fresh pineapple and a separate juice when making this. The pineapple will have a little more snap to it and provide a nice textural contrast to the chicken. Plus the pineapple juice simply has better flavor than what is used to can the pineapple. Use a hollowed pineapple to create a pineapple boat for serving the rice and chicken.

Really delicious! To add some heat, I also used thin jalapeño slices, which I mixed in at the end. I also garnished with diced green onions. This is perfect for entertaining, my friends love it when I make this recipe.

I used 6 chicken thighs instead of 8, and I think it was the perfect amount for two servings. I also didn't add any diced pineapples at the end. I just served chicken with rice in the pineapple bowl. Very good!

This was a really easy recipe to make in my Multipot. I used pineapple juice from a can, but did use fresh pineapple and made the pineapple boats to serve. Delicious!

I used canned pineapple juice and light brown sugar to make this delicious chicken recipe. Brown rice was the perfect compliment to this dish. The one thing I'm most impressed with is not flavor, but how tender the meat was. Cooking with a pressure cooker ensures the meat won't dry out. Loved it!

I made this sans the brown sugar (I used honey), and it was sweet, sticky and delicious. The meat was really tender, one of the perks of using a pc. I served it with plain white rice right out of the pineapple bowl just like the picture. Yummy!

Totally great recipe! The chicken was moist and loaded with flavor. I don't buy chicken thighs, so I substituted with cubed up boneless skinless chicken breasts. I read that (1) boneless skinless chicken thigh is about 3 ounces of meat, so I used about 24 ounces (1.5 lbs) of chicken breast to replace the 8 thighs. It worked great!

I LOVED this recipe! It was amazing. I blended a small fruit cup of pineapple in coconut water with some fresh pineapple to make the “juice”. I added sautéed bell peppers & I topped with sriracha and green onions.

This is the first real recipe I tried in my new pot (only rice and bone broth so far). It turned out great! Thank you for making recipes so easy to follow for newbies like myself.
