This Chicken Pineapple Curry recipe is the perfect way to introduce curry to your family. We've used a pleasant mild yellow curry to get you started and included sweet pineapple to balance the spices in this dish. It is ready in less than 30 minutes. Serve over rice.

    Add unsweetened coconut flakes

    Christine Hanson from Eagle River, AK

    Add unsweetened coconut flakes when serving and it was a hit. I wonder if it could be adapted to a crock pot by adding the evaportated milk at the end of the cooking.

    Simply Delicious!

    Kim Riewerts from ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL

    Great recipe and easy to make! Comes together quickly and everyone enjoyed. I used crush pineapple to offset the larger vegetables and made for a nice heavier sauce.

    super tangy

    sherrie bowman from CHESTER, VA

    I usually do not like fruit with meat, but thought this was a good combination with a fresh salad on the side. It has just enough tang to suit .

    Chicken/Pineapple Curry

    Priscilla-Jane Raykoske from WALLINGFORD, VT

    This dish is very tasty. It was so easy to put together, the children helped. They just loved the pineapple and chicken combination. The next time, I will reduce the curry a wee bit, as they're not all fans of curry.

    My Family's Favorite

    Penny Cobb from BAILEY, NC

    I have tried several of the recipes in the book I received from Carnation. This one is by far our favorite. I only used 1 tsp. of curry since it was new to my family but I will increase it to 2 tsp. next time. I love recipes that can be made in one pan. I started the rice then prepped and cooked the dish while the rice cooked. It was a great recipe to try on a week night. We almost didn't have leftovers for lunches the next day because everyone kept wanting "just a little bit more".

    GREATand good!!!!!!

    Melody Adams from LAKEWOOD, WA

    My husband loves curry and we both love chicken, pineapple and broccoli so this dish hit the spot all the way around. An easy dish to make so I can do it when I get home from work and have it for dinner in a very short time. Its an all in one dish, protien, fruit, a starch and vegtables. What more could a person ask for in any dish they might serve thier family.
