Makes 4 servings

prep time 5 min

total time 20 min

Ingredients

  • 2 pouches (480 g) UNCLE BEN’S RICE & PULSES™ Cilantro & Lime Flavour Rice & Black Beans
    1 lb (500g) Chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
    2 tbsp (30 mL) Jerk Seasoning**
    2 tsp each (10 mL) Canola oil
    3 cups (750 mL) Vegetables – 2 cups/500 mL chopped red pepper and 1 cup/250 mL chopped onion
    1 cup (250 mL) Pineapple chunks – canned or fresh
  • **Jerk Seasonings range from mild to hot.  Taste the seasoning before adding it to the chicken to determine what heat level your family can handle and add more or less as desired.

Directions

  • Toss chicken thighs with seasoning and allow to marinate for 5 minutes.
  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tsp/5 mL oil over medium high heat.  Add vegetables and pineapple and stir-fry for 5 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown.  Transfer to a bowl or plate and keep warm.
  • To the same skillet heat 1 tsp/5 mL oil over medium-high heat.  Add chicken, flattening the thigh to maximize surface touching the pan (and therefore more caramelization and faster cooking). Cook for 5-7 minutes per side until internal temperature of 165ºF.
  • Heat UNCLE BEN’S RICE & PULSES™ Cilantro & Lime Flavour Rice & Black Beans according to package directions. Enjoy!

Tips

  • If you have some time, or remember in the morning, marinate the chicken in the paste for up to 4 hours.
  • Cook time will vary depending on thickness of the chicken thighs.
