Pineapple Sriracha Chicken over Wild Rice with Spinach

If you haven’t had it before, you’ll soon swoon over the whole grain, wild rice. While pineapple chunks and Sriracha-glazed chicken pieces are spooned over the wild rice in this recipe, consider also serving the rice mixed in with brown rice to liven it up as a side. For spice mavens, increase the Sriracha to 4 tablespoons in the chicken.

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: Wild rice can be finicky to cook, which is why the cook time ranges from 45 to 60 minutes, unlike the exactness of other rices. If after 60 minutes there is still too much liquid, increase the heat to high and boil uncovered until remaining water has evaporated.

Keep it Healthy: Any vegetables or greens can be stirred into a rice pilaf—it’s a great way not only use any leftover odds and ends in the fridge while also making various versions of pilaf.

Tip: Coating meat in a light dusting of cornstarch serves two purposes—helping provide a more golden “crust” while sautéing and also aiding to thicken any added liquid into a sauce.
