  • 1 medium pineapple (or 2 cups canned pineapple chunks)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 large orange (for juice)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 lb (450g) boneless skinless chicken breast or thighs , cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil , for cooking
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (mixed with 3 tablespoons water)
  • cooked rice
  • chopped green onion , for sprinkling
  • sesame seeds , for sprinkling


  • Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise and carve out both sides. Transfer the flesh from one side to a bowl (we will need it later), while setting aside the other one to eat later. If using canned pineapple chunks, you will need about 2 cups.
  • In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, orange juice, honey, ginger, and sesame oil. Stir well. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Let sit for 20 minutes.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Remove the chicken from the marinade with a slotted spoon and add to the skillet (reserve the marinade). Cook until cooked through (for about 5 minutes).
  • Remove the skillet from heat and transfer the chicken to a bowl. Add the reserved marinade to the same skillet. Add the butter and the pineapple flesh. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and stir in the cornstarch mixed with water. Keep stirring until the sauce has thickened. Bring back the cooked chicken and stir once more to combine.
  • Fill the pineapple bowls with white rice. Spoon the pineapple and chicken mixture on top. Sprinkle with some chopped green onion and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
