Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Pineapple Chicken Curry #Recipe

Pineapple Chicken Curry #Recipe

Remember the Chiquita Cooking Lab Recipe Contest I wrote about in October? I submitted a recipe to Chiquita over a week ago. The three ingredients for the week I submitted my recipe were: Pineapple, Spinach, and Bananas. The first thing that came to my mind was, "I need to make a smoothie recipe, but that's the obvious thing to make." I was then reminded of the vast array of foods my aunt made for my Grandad's 90th birthday. My favorite dish was a pineapple curry recipe. Unfortunately, I did not get the recipe from her. Then, I decided to come up with a recipe for a curry dish. Bananas did not go in the dish itself, instead they were a garnish on top of the curry.

4 lbs. chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2 onions, diced
1/2 tsp. ginger, ground
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. onion powder
4 Tbsp. curry paste
20 oz. Dole crushed pineapple in juice
14.5 oz. roasted diced tomatoes
5 oz. Dole baby spinach
4 bananas, sliced

1. Cook and shred chicken breasts.
2. Dice 2 onions.
3. Mix together spices-ginger, garlic powder, salt, turmeric powder, ground cinnamon, and onion powder.
4. Add chicken, diced onions, spices, curry paste, crushed pineapple, and diced tomatoes to slow cooker.
5. Cook on low for 4-5 hours.
6. About 30 minutes before serving, mix in 5 oz. baby spinach into curry.
7. Place lid back on slow cooker.
8. Serve curry over rice.
9. Add bananas on top of curry.

It was easy submitting a recipe. I was even able to submit a photograph. I encourage you to go look at the details for the cooking contest every Monday, come up with a recipe, and submit it that week. Will you submit a recipe this week? If so, what will it be?

I will be receiving a GC for promoting the Chiquita

  1. This looks really flavorful. My husband is always asking me to try Indian food, but curry sounds a bit too spicy for me.

  2. Yum, I'm going to try this with tofu!

  3. I love the addition of the pinneapple. I bet that would mild it enough for the kiddos

    1. Yes, it was definitely mild enough for my three year old. When I serve curry, I usually have yogurt on the table for those who find curry a little too spicy.

  4. Oh, this looks so yummy! Can't wait to try this.

  5. This looks declious, we are vegan though so I would use tofu instead of chicken. I love curry.

  6. This is one of the most creative (and yummy-sounding) recipes I've seen in a while. Thanks for sharing, can't wait to try it!!

  7. This looks so yummy! Sounds great to add to my winter recipe collection!

  8. This dish looks delicious! Hubby is going to love the curry and all of us are going to love the pineapple! Glad I found this :)
