  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated gingerroot
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked instant white rice
  • 1 cup pineapple tidbits (from 398 mL can), undrained

    Make teriyaki glaze by mixing brown sugar, soy sauce, gingerroot, garlic and pepper flakes in 8-inch nonstick skillet. Stir over medium heat until sugar is melted. In small bowl, beat cornstarch and water; add to soy mixture. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture starts to simmer and has thickened. Cool slightly; reserve 2 tablespoons glaze in small bowl; cover and refrigerate.

    Mix rice, pineapple, bell pepper, 3 tablespoons of the onions and the broth in baking dish. Season both sides of chicken with salt; brush with 2 tablespoons of the unrefrigerated glaze. Stir remaining unrefrigerated glaze into rice mixture; place chicken on top of rice. Cover tightly with foil.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Instant rice is a parboiled style of rice which yields the best results for an oven casserole.
  • Tip 2
    Fresh pineapple can be substituted for canned pineapple in this recipe. Use 1 cup of pineapple, and increase broth to 1 3/4 cups.
  • Tip 3
    The size of the boneless chicken breast (about 140 g each) in this recipe is critical for accurate cooking times and doneness. Always measure the internal temperature (165°F) to ensure chicken is completely cooked without sacrificing moisture.
