Ingredients

  • 850g Chicken breast
  • 250g Pineapple chunks
  • 50g Pineapple juice
  • 100g Onion
  • 25g Minced garlic
  • 25g Chili pepper
  • 150g Silk Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • 15g Shredded coconut meat
  • 5g Fresh cilantro
  • Sprinkle of garlic powder
  • Sprinkle of onion powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh lime to taste

Instructions

  1. Chop chicken into 2-3 inch chunks, brown in pan over high heat long enough to give the meat color but not fully cooked through. Season lightly with garlic powder, onion powder and salt. You may need to do this in batches- set chicken aside. Sauté finely chopped onion and garlic in the same pan until they caramelize. Add in chunked pineapple and scrape the bottom of the pan with your spatula to get all the flavor!

  2. In a large pot, add in chicken, onion/garlic/pineapple mixture, pineapple juice and coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Allow to cook for about 25 minutes low heat, covered.

  3. While the pot simmers, slice chilis lengthwise and remove the seeds, finely chop! Finely chop the cilantro, including the stems.
  4. After 25 minutes, add in chilis, cilantro and coconut meat. Allow to cook together until the chicken is tender and the bulk of the liquid is absorbed- but not all! We want to keep a little juice for the chicken to absorb as it cools.
