Thai Pineapple Chicken & Micro Arugula

Are you craving some South Pacific cuisine? This sweet, sticky and tangy Thai chicken with roasted pineapple, brown rice and our nutty Micro Arugula is a spectacular taste treat. Believe it or not, this stunning dish takes less than 40 minutes to make, even with the fancy veggie ribbons. Try it any time during the week when you want to feed your family an authentic flavorful dish that's anything but the norm.

We start by mixing up a homemade marinade that really gives this dish an authentic flair. Mixing all the ingredients is easy, but you may have to visit a specialty store to get palm sugar and lemon grass paste. They are key to creating a memorable flavor, kind of like our Micro Arugula. It has the ability to elevate any dish and offers a nutty, spicy bite, all while keeping it light and fresh.

Next you'll want to pan fry the chicken thighs. Thighs are a naturally fatty cut compared to breast meat, but it's your choice here. Choosing free range and antibiotic free chicken makes a big difference too.
