  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, place uncooked rice and seasoning mix (from Asian Helper box); stir in broth. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low. Cover; cook 15 to 18 minutes, stirring once, until rice is tender.

    Meanwhile, reserve tops of 2 of the green onions; slice remaining onions. In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix flour, allspice and garlic powder. Add chicken to bag; seal and shake to coat chicken with spices. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken and sliced onions in oil 3 to 4 minutes, turning chicken once, until no longer pink in center. Add pineapple and cooked rice to skillet with chicken. Cook and stir 1 minute or until pineapple is hot.

    Slice reserved green onion tops diagonally into 1-inch pieces; sprinkle over chicken mixture.

Expert Tips

  • Boost the vegetables by adding 1 cup frozen (thawed) sweet peas toward the end of the final cooking time.
  • Allspice is native to the West Indies and South America, with most of the crop coming from Jamaica. Allspice has a flavor combination similar to cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
