  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs , sliced lengthwise into strips
  • tablespoons (14 g) ginger root, chopped
  • 3 green onions , roughly chopped
  • ½ cup (120 mL) pineapple juice
  • ½ cup (120 mL) soy-free teriyaki sauce (we used Primal Kitchen brand)
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) coconut aminos
  • ¼ teaspoon (0.5 g) red pepper flakes
  • 2 bamboo/wood skewers


  • Slice each chicken thigh into 3 long strips, place in a plastic zip-top bag. Add in the ginger and green onion.
  • In a large liquid measuring cup, combine the pineapple juice, soy-free teriyaki, and coconut aminos. Mix, and then add to the bag with the chicken. Move everything around to combine. Seal the top and refrigerate for approximately 4 hours.
  • Heat your grill to medium heat, with a hot zone and a cool zone.
  • Skewer two pieces of chicken on each bamboo skewer. Lightly sprinkle the skewers with red pepper flakes for a little heat. You can omit if you don't like spicy foods or add more if you do.
  • Grill the skewers with the handle end over the cool zone and chicken over the hot zone for 2-3 minutes per side, until fully cooked. Medium heat will cook them a little more gently, which keeps the skewers from burning.
  • Serve with pineapple fried rice.

  • 3 cups (585 g) cooked Jasmine rice, preferably made the day before
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) ghee, butter, or vegetable shortening, divided
  • ½ cup (64 g) carrots, small dice
  • ½ cup (58 g) onion, small dice
  • ½ cup (75 g) frozen green peas
  • 1 clove garlic , minced
  • 2 large eggs , whisked
  • 1 cup (165 g) canned pineapple chunks
  • cup (80 mL) coconut aminos
  • 3 tablespoons (9 g) green onion, sliced for garnish


  • Prepare the rice a day ahead of time (if you use freshly cooked rice, it will end up mushy; using leftover rice is ideal).
  • Heat a wok over high heat. Once heated, add 1 tablespoon ghee (or other cooking fat). Add the carrots and onion and stir-fry until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the frozen peas and cook another 2 minutes.
  • Add the minced garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the rice to the wok, along with the remaining ghee/fat. Toss to combine.
  • While the fried rice is cooking, scramble the eggs in a separate pan. If you want to limit dishes, you can do this step first in the wok, and set aside.
  • Add the pineapple chunks to the fried rice, along with the coconut aminos. Continue to stir-fry.
  • Break the scrambled eggs into small pieces and add into the fried rice. Toss to combine. Serve, garnished with a little sliced green onion.
