Chicken Pineapple Twist

This is my first post for Food Trip Friday. I love chicken. In the house, we try to avoid red meat, as much as possible, we stick to chicken, fish or vegetables. So here I am running out of fresh ideas on how to cook chicken, here's what I came up with, a new twist to the regular "pininyahang manok" (chicken with pineapple).

What you need:

1K chicken breast fillet
1 small can evaporated milk
1 small can pineapple chunks
1 medium lemon (juiced)
4 tablespoons coriander
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
salt, sugar and pepper to taste
Spicy chicken breading mix
2 tablespoons garlic powder
10 tablespoons of oil

What to do:

Marinade the chicken in milk, the juice of the pineapple, lemon, 2 tablespoons coriander, salt and pepper. Chill for about an hour.

After an hour, boil the chicken for about 5 minutes. Take the chicken out of the marinade, cover it in the breading mixxed with garlic powder. Sear the chicken in a pre-heated pan with oil until golden brown.

For the sauce:

In a saucepan, mix the cornstarch in the marinade until there are no lumps. Boil the marinade, add sugar, salt and pepper to taste until the liquid is thick. Add the pineapple chunks and simmer for 2 minutes.

For the rice:

Steam rice, when it's cooked, add half a stick of butter, 2 tablespoons of coriander, put some salt and garlic powder. Cook for another minute.

To serve:

Cut the chicken into strips, top with the sauce and serve it along side the garlic and herb rice.
