How are you guys?

Sunday nights and Monday mornings can be a little challenging sometimes, right? They can also be inspiring. Lately I’m trying to channel all of the people in my life who DON’T suffer from what I call “Sunday Night-itis” and look at this as a chance to tackle a new week in style. Late January can be dark and cold in New England, but a little light is returning to us every day.

You can start to see the difference.

I decided to plan ahead for this transition into a new week. Over the weekend, Cassidy and his dad took Des to a massive train show. Scarlet asked me to take her to see Hidden Figures for a matinee showing. Before the movie, I set one of my favorite recipes to cook in the oven while we were gone. I had most of the ingredients I needed, but was able to pop into Stop & Shop for the rest. The three main ingredients are Minute® Rice, Dole® Pineapple, Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce.

When Scarlet and I got out of Hidden Figures – which we loved – we were driving against late afternoon weekend traffic and a fading sun. Once we got home and stepped into the warm kitchen – I set to work making a beautiful dinner for us all. I love the fresh taste of Dole® Pineapple year-round, in the rising heat of summer, and to give my gloomy winter days a touch of warmth and beauty. The products are naturally fat free, cholesterol free, and are naturally very low sodium. Not to mention that amazing Vitamin C! Canned pineapple, with its sweet and tangy flavor, is a great addition to all types of dishes – sweet or savory. I use the slices and chunks, as well as Dole® Crushed Pineapple. My pineapple chicken teriyaki uses the chunks.

Next we have Minute® 100% Whole Grain Brown Rice! This is a pantry staple here – and the perfect foundation to our favorite meals. It comes in three varieties, including Whole Grain Brown Rice, White Rice, and Multi-Grain Medley. Something for everyone! I use Minute® 100% Whole Grain Brown Rice because I love the nutty, rich flavor, and it has similar nutritional values to regular, long-cooking brown rice. It’s ready in ten minutes – 1/4 the time – and is gluten free and non GMO. offers easy “gateway” recipes so that you can enjoy Asian flavor and flair, right in your home, and any day or night of the week. Traditionally Brewed Less Sodium Soy Sauce is perfect for home cooks like me – looking to cut down on sodium levels without sacrificing flavor.

And now for the recipe! For just a few tips, I use organic chicken breasts from a brand I know and trust. You can cut your chicken into slices and dices, you can leave them whole as breasts, or you can make thin cutlets like I like to do.

Pineapple, pineapple, pineapple. It’s fresh and plump! I use it for the cooking itself of the recipe, and also use uncooked pineapple on top! You can use any type of Dole Pineapple you want, or use at least three of the products like me!

Then you have a wonderful meal at your fingertips!

  1. OK, so I have all of these ingredients in my home. So while you are making Mac and Cheese Bites from my blog, guess what I will be making tonight for my gang?!! You guessed and cannot wait to have this Pineapple Chicken Teriyaki over rice 😉

  2. How did you know I like pineapple so much! Yum! I love this recipe! Ugh Monday mornings I always seem so behind the eight ball, because I was up way to late on Sunday worrying about the new week… My own worst enemy 🙂

  3. As the kids say… YAAAASSSS!! 🙂 This looks and sounds wonderful. Teriyaki is serious stuff here. You would be amazed by the number of teriyaki spots around here. If or when we move, I think that’s one of the things I’ll miss.
