Hawaiian Chicken with Rice

Hawaiian Chicken with Rice

This recipe was really easy. Sorry the photo looks so saturated. The purpley/blue is just a reflection from the window. Those parts are actually just black. Didn’t feel like fixing it! But back to the recipe: it’s really easy. ALSO, for like once ever, I made it myself without a recipe to start off of from Pinterest! *takes a bow*

Ingredients:

  • some chicken
  • soy sauce (should be 1:1 ratio to water)
  • water
  • garlic powder
  • brown sugar
  • diced onion
  • pineapple wedges
  • sesame seeds
  • coconut oil
  • rice

That’s what I used.

Most detailed recipe ever.

I didn’t really measure anything out, especially since I was just making one portion. Then, I just let the chicken marinate in the soy sauce & water, garlic powder, brown sugar and onions for a bit, then dumped it all in a frying pan on low for about 10 minutes on each side. In a bigger pan, I took the leftover white rice from Chinese takeout yesterday and warmed it up/fried it with about a half-teaspoon of coconut oil. I added some of the marinade mixture from the pan with the chicken, but not a lot. Then I sprinkled in some sesame seeds. After the marinade reduced a little and the chicken was almost done, I added the pineapple wedges, continued to cook on low for the remainder of the time, then turned up the heat and seared both sides of the chicken. I took all the chicken and rice off the heat, then let the soy-sauce marinade cook a little more ’til it was pretty much caramelized, then drizzled it on top of the chicken. Et voila!

P.S., it was SOOO yummy. Mmm mmm mmm.

Pina Colada Cupcakes

If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, you need to check it out. Like come on. Where have you been.

So I made vanilla cupcakes with pineapple filling and coconut frosting. Here’s a bunch of photos! Click on the photo below for the cake recipe:

I tried to follow the recipe (click the photo with the ingredients above for the recipe) as strictly as I could. I’m not known for my baking skills. While they were in the oven, I mixed the frosting. As in, I got some Betty Crocker frosting and mixed in a bunch of coconut, then put it into a piping back (which I made myself by cutting off the zip part of a baggie, then twisting it up.

Then the cupcakes came out! And while they cooled, I made the pineapple filling (which I forgot to take a picture of.) I used this recipe. Except I did it in a saucepan. Turned out delicious, by the way! After they cooled, I took a melon baller (you’re supposed to use an apple corer, but I didn’t have one of those) and took out the centers in all the cupcakes, then filled them with the filling!

Then I frosted them, toasted some coconut and placed it on top (all decorative, like) and voila!

If I were to do it again, (but I won’t, because I don’t particularly like to bake) I would take the cupcakes out of the oven a good bit sooner. They were a little dry. But still tasty! Yay!
