What a eye-opener. It was ..... well, just delicious and I WILL be having it again. Many thanks to the Pioneer Woman for showing me rice CAN be nice! I admit to a few changes to the original recipe - I didn't have fresh pineapple but I did have a tin and I used a famous name 'Peri Peri Sauce' as I'd run out of hot chili sauce but the final result was good - even with my changes. I don't eat pork so only cooked one chop and I added chopped mushrooms to the rice - the rice and onion mixture was a meal in itself for me. Add cooked chicken to the rice if you want.
