A complete meal that’s ready in an hour with tender, juicy chicken, pineapple slices, and rice. Savoury with a bit of a kick, sweet, thanks to fresh pineapples, and well-seasoned. A must-try and to keep!


1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon chilli powder
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 breast half, bone and skin removed (blank)s skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 ½ cups water
1 (8 ounces) can sliced pineapple in juice, drained – divided
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 pinch garlic salt
1 pinch ground black pepper


Step 1: Ready the oven. Preheat it to 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F.

Step 2: Combine the brown sugar, thyme, cumin, a tsp black pepper, paprika, a tsp garlic salt, nutmeg, and chilli powder in a medium mixing bowl until incorporated.

Step 3: Generously coat the chicken breasts with the seasoning and add them into the prepared 9 x 9-inch baking dish. For extra flavour, sprinkle the rest of the seasoning over the chicken.

Step 4: Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until no juices are coming out. Or use an instant-read thermometer, and it should register 70 degrees C or 160 degrees F.

Step 5: Meanwhile, add rice and water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, adjust the heat to medium-low and cover the pan. Let it simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the rice is tender.

Step 6: Add the halved pineapples into the rice and drizzle with olive oil followed by cilantro. To taste, season with black pepper and garlic salt.

Step 7: On a serving plate, place the rice mixture, top with the remaining slices of pineapple, and the baked chicken. Enjoy!
