Pineapples make a very beautiful dish, both in colour and in taste. I find it very appetising. I love to use fresh pineapples in my cooking especially in sweet and sour chicken. But this dish, Pineapple Char Siu Chicken is my first attempt. I think it’s delicious and I liked it. If you like something sour and sweet, you’ll most likely like this dish. You can check out my recent post on ‘How To Cut A Pineapple‘ if you have difficulty cutting pineapples. It’s simple and fun.
I had some char siu chicken left over from the previous day so I just thought I could cook it with pineapples. It would give the dish extra flavour as the char siu chicken itself is very flavourful and tasty. Click Super Fast Chinese Roasted Chicken to learn how to make the quickest char siu chicken.
The big onions would give some sweetness and flavour to it while the chilies add some spiciness.This dish is very simple and easy. Just don’t over cook it. Here’s my recipe to share. Again the amount is up to individual and you can adjust the seasonings according to your taste. Simple seasoning is good enough for this dish.
char siu chicken (sliced)
red chili (diced)
big onion (sliced)
coriander (washed and chopped)
Ingredients B (seasonings)
Heat up some oil in the frying pan. Add the onion slices and fry for a while. You may still want some crunch to it so don’t fry too long. Next add the char siu chicken pieces and fry until fragrant. Then add the pineapple pieces and chopped chili. Fry for a little while. Lastly add the sugar, salt and chopped coriander. Adjust according to your taste. Mix well and dish up on to a plate and serve hot. It goes great with rice.
