Teriyaki Chicken + Sticky Pineapple Rice

This recipe is one I found on Tip Hero but altered for a healthier version. It is unbelievably tasty and moreish, so give it a go!

Serves 2


  • 2 cups of Brown Rice (I use brown sushi rice as it makes it stickier!)
  • 1 Pineapple
  • 6 Chicken Thighs
  • 3 pinches of grated Root Ginger
  • 4 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • A pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp Corn Flour
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Sugar (or dark brown sugar)


  1. Cook the brown rice (I like to then leave the sushi rice overnight as it can then properly dry out and creates a very sticky finished texture that adds to the dish, but you don’t need to do this)
  2. Cut the pineapple. Slice it in two and cut out as much as you can before scooping out the rest with a spoon.
  3. Put the pineapple in a saucepan over heat, add two cups of water, the coconut sugar, chilli flakes, salt and rice.
  4. Leave to reduce for 15 minutes.
  5. Whilst this is happening, chop up your chicken and begin frying it.
  6. Add to the chicken; ginger, soy sauce, and a pre-mixed teaspoon of corn flour in half a cup of filtered water.
  7. Leave simmering until the sauce thickens and then serve with a portion of pineapple rice.
