Having given you a pic of Sunday and Monday’s meal, here we are with Tuesday.
Today’s dish is my Ginger and Pineapple Chicken (with rice)
Basically, it’s the same sweet and sour sauce recipe I’ve made up before but without the vinegar to help Hubby’s reflux issues.

You’ll need 

1 large chicken breast
1 tin pineapple pieces or 4 rings (cut these up)
1 chicken stock cube
handful mixed peppers
rich soy sauce (1 – 2 tablespoons depending on your palette)
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon ginger

Your choice of rice cooked as per packet instructions.

I cubed the chicken and cooked it in a little water, then drained that off.
I added the pineapple juice, stock cube, sugar and soy sauce and brought that back up to heat.
Finally I added the pineapple, turned the heat down and let it all gently come together, stirring occasionally.
Cost works out at around £1.50.

The hobs are quick to heat. And I mean quick, you can see the heated elements in seconds!
That means that stuff boils fast too and I wasn’t quick enough to stop the rice boiling over.
After allowing them to cool, they are easy to keep clean, though I had invested in some specific hob cleaner for the job.

The above serves 2, so out of my tin of pineapple, I had 4 rings left over. I could have added them to the meal, but that would have made it more pineapple than chicken!
Note: sometimes I do just that, omitting the chicken altogether and we just have the pineapple sauce with rice for a meat free dinner.

So, rather than have them tomorrow, I did this:

Personally I think my cake tastes OK without the added dressing!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well now I’m hungry.

    • Haha. I’m out at darts tonight so it was an early dinner, though recently we have been having our main meal during the day rather than early evening. Hubby will have a snack later but there’s always some nibbles laid on so I shall have something there.
