A hit of heat and hint of sweet all in one dish
|3 lbs||boneless skinless chicken breasts-cut in three pieces|
|1||orange-juice and zest|
|4 tbsp||olive oil|
|1/2 tsp||minced garlic|
|2 tbsp||chili powder|
|1/2 tsp||red chile flakes|
|1 1/2 cups||rice|
|2 1/2 cups||water|
|1 can||pineapple chunks|
In a Ziploc bag place chicken, olive oil, vinegar, chile flakes, chili powder, garlic, salt, juice and zest of the orange. Seal the bag and massage the contents so that chicken gets well coated. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours (overnight is great).
In a casserole dish rinse the rice thoroughly and drain (to remove excess starch). Add the water and microwave with lid on for 5 minutes. Add the onion and celery and pineapple and microwave for an additional 5 min.
Add the entire contents of the Ziploc (chicken and marinade) and stir to combine. Make sure all chicken pieces are evenly distributed and covered.
Bake in 350F oven (covered) for 1 1/2 hours.
